When to Go

Mauritius enjoys a warm and mild climate year-round, making it the perfect destination any time of year.

Summer (November to April): The weather can be hot and humid with temperatures ranging from 25-33 degrees C, with hottest temps from December-February. Rainfall is highest during January and February, however it’s typically a passing tropical-style rain and is usually a welcomed cool-down. Cyclone season is January through March and while they don’t occur every year, potential heavy rainfall should be considered, if you’re planning to travel during this time.

Winter (May to October): Temperatures are more mild and dry during these months with average highs of 24 degrees C. We recommend avoiding the east and south coast during July and August as trade winds can be quite strong. 

September-November are optimal months to visit. Temperatures are warm, humidity and rainfall is at it’s lowest, and it’s ‘off season” so you will find great value at top resorts. 

“High Season” (November to early January): Most popular tourist months given the holidays and desire to escape the European winter. .
