Best Time to Visit Mauritius

The best time to visit Mauritius is from May to December when the weather is cool, dry and sunny. Expect some of Africa’s best beaches, fresh seafood and long, sundrenched days on a Mauritius holiday

The island has a classic tropical climate with warm weather year-round. Even in winter, from May to October, the temperature drops from hot to balmy. During summer, from November to April, the days are hot and humid.

We don’t recommend visting Mauritius during the wet cyclone season, from January to March, and avoid the east coast in July and August, when the wind is at its strongest.
