Our Take

icon

Dreaming of powder-white sand, swirling sapphire waters and a martini glass of something exotic? Then look no further than Mauritius, the Indian Ocean’s palm-fringed superpower and original beach paradise. As well as sun-lounging and cocktail-sipping, there are plenty of adventures to be had and lush tropical rainforests, spectacular steep-rising mountains and epic waterfalls cry out to be explored.

If the ocean is more your thing, diving and snorkelling in pristine underwater gardens alongside kaleidoscopes of tropical fish is next-level fabulous, not forgetting the waterskiing, parasailing, kayaking, windsurfing… Whatever happens, we guarantee that you will never be bored in Mauritius.

When to visit 

Mauritius

Temp
28°C

This is one of the warmest months to visit, though one of the wettest. Rains tend to be fast and furious, meaning you can still enjoy plenty of sunshine on the beach.

Hot days with balmy evenings. You shouldn’t need to bring a warm top for the evening as temperatures remain warm. As the cyclone season draws to an end, you will see less rainfall and a drop in the humidity.

Temp
28°C

This is one of the drier and cooler months in Mauritius. If you’re looking for some sunny weather without the intense summer heat or the crowds, then you’ll enjoy visiting at this time. Surfers, sailors and windsurfers may take advantage of the strong winds on the South and East coast.

Temp

October brings warm and dry weather conditions with around 8 hours of sunshine per day and very little rainfall. Many travellers like to visit at this time ahead of the hot humid summer conditions.

Temp
27°C

This is one of the best months to visit as rainfall is still low but temperatures begin to increase as we enter the summer season, with an average of 9 hours of sunshine per day!
