Exploring Mauritius Holidays

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. .

Located on the west coast, Flic-en-Flac is one of the island's most popular beaches and offers a lovely seaside village. The town is smaller than Grand Baie, but offers a variety of local cafes, shops and nightlife.
Grand Bassin
This is a definite a 'must see' on the island. The scared lake, also known as Ganga Talao, represents the holy Ganges river of India. It's tucked away in the mountains of the South West surrounded by colourful Hindu temples and gods.

Seven Coloured Earth in Chamarel
This natural phenomenon is a vibrant display of lava oxidation over thousands of years; it’s a brilliant sight of majestic orange and red layered earth. In Chamarel, you can also visit a flowing waterfall and enjoy the agricultural land where sugarcane and pineapples grow on the countryside.
