January

January is prone to cyclones and rain, so if you're looking for a beach holiday this is not a reliable time to travel.

Expand

February

February is the most active period during the cyclone season in Mauritius, so we would avoid travelling at this time

Expand

March

In March the weather is hot and humid, with sporadic rainfall as the end of the cyclone season comes to a close. It is a popular time for travellers as the temperatures aren't too high.

Expand

April

If you're wanting to travel in April expect hot weather with temperatures rising to 30 degrees with increasing humidity levels.

Expand

May

May is one of the best and most popular month to travel to Mauritius, with temperatures hovering over the 25 degrees mark, with easing humidity making for a comfortable climate.

Expand

June

During June the temperatures cool to 24 degrees due to the trade winds on the east and south coast of Mauritius, offering warm and sunny days.

Expand

July

The temperatures cool again in July, as the trade winds pick up making some of the more open beaches less sheltered and breezy. It is a popular time to travel due to the summer holidays starting in the Northern Hemisphere.

Expand

August

Much like July, August experiences increased winds with warm days perfect for watersports and the islands more sheltered beaches. During the evenings temperatures become cooler and you may appreciate a few more layers.

Expand

September

In September the trade winds die down and temperatures rise once again, making it the perfect time for snorkelling as diving as the water clarity increases thanks to the calm weather conditions.

Expand

October

October is the islands driest month with temperatures exceeding 25 degrees. If you love nature Mauritius is overflowing with exotic flowers and wildlife as everything comes into bloom, making it the best time for mountain hikes and trips to the country's national parks.

Expand

November

In November temperatures start to rise again, as does the humidity as the country progresses into its cyclone season. The weather can be unpredictable with small rain showers, meaning it is still a good time to travel to Mauritius.

Expand

December

As the festive season looms, December is one of the busiest months for visitors in Mauritius. As humidity builds up, heavy rain showers occur helping lowering the humidity and clearing the heavy skies.
