Best time to visit Mauritius

Mauritius is a year-round destination, as long as you don't mind tropical storms! These tend to hit the island from mid-December until about March, though these are still popular months to come here. 
If you like it hot and don't mind it wet, come in December to March. If you prefer it cooler and drier, opt for May to September.



January - February: These months are generally hot and humid in Mauritius, and tropical storms are common. On the coast, daytime temperatures average around 34°c until about May.

March - April: Tropical storms are abating, but it's still hot. Humidity is slowly starting to decrease and it becomes more comfortable.

May - June: These are great months to visit. The temperatures are warm, but the humidity has lifted. There are some good pre-high season offers to be had at this time. Evenings in June can be a little cool.

July - August: These are cooler months as the tradewinds keep the climate very pleasant. It's a particularly nice time to travel here with children given that it's not too hot. June to August are the best months for surfing. Coastal daytime temperatures from June to September average a pleasant 22°c.

September - December: The temperatures start to rise again in September and the tradewinds disappear. These are good months to visit Mauritius as it's warm yet not too humid. October is probably the driest month, and also popular with families around half-term. The heat and humidity start to increase in December and rain is likely, although it will probably be a quick shower, then the sun will reappear. The good game fishing season starts in about October running through to April. The best diving is between November and March. On the coast, daytime temperatures from about November onwards average around 34°c.
