Thanks to especially designed equipment and the creativity of our Kids’ Club team, the La Pirogue Sun Kids’ Club provides a wide variety of both fun and educational activities that focus on your children having a good time.

As children aged 2 and 3 years need a little extra attention, it is necessary to hire a babysitter for each child (available on request, this service incurs a supplementary fee).
Activities including sports, trips, excursions and party nights are also available for teenagers aged between 12 and 17 years. No longer children but not quite adults; teenagers need an outlet for all of their energy and to have fun on holiday. The Teens’ Club is a means for everyone to enjoy their family holiday in Mauritius, exactly as they want.
