Best Time to Visit Mauritius islands

What is the best time to visit Mauritius islands? Our destination experts share an overview on seasons and when to go. 

The climate in Mauritius is tropical. Temperatures on the island are relatively constant during the year and the rainfall is distributed evenly over the year. There are two seasons in Mauritius.

  • Winter: May – November
  • Summer: December – April

During the winter, it is relatively dry, whereas in the summer it can often lead to heavy precipitation and tropical storms. Temperature on the coastal areas varies between 22°C in winter and 34°C in summer. The sea temperature varies between 22°C and 27°C. The best time for diving is between November and April, when the sea is at its calmest. The North and West coasts are the best areas for diving enthusiasts as these are the most sheltered.

The best travel time for your Mauritius vacation is in the winter. The most comfortable temperatures are from September to January, when the weather is mild and the temperatures pleasant if you are seeking a more active vacation. If you are planning a pure beach holiday in Mauritius, we recommend the months October to March.
