Best Time To Travel To Mauritius

Mauritius Island Has A Classic Tropical Climate With Warm Sunny Weather Virtually All Year Round.

During the summer months (November to April) the days are long, hot and humid. This is also cyclone season with January to March being the wettest months – so if you do travel at that time you should be prepared for some heavy rain.

Since it never really gets cold on the island in winter (May to October) the average temperature simply drops from sticky to balmy.

So in general, the best time to visit Mauritius for cooler, drier days is from May to December. That said, if you’re planning to stay on the east coast, we recommend avoiding the months of July and August as this is when the wind is at its strongest on this side of the island.
