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.

The best time to visit Mauritius

Mauritius is paradise for those who want to enjoy the sea or just to soak up the sun. Mauritius’ white beaches are protected by a coral reef barrier that encircles almost all of the coastline. With its broad selection of resorts, beach lodges, hotels, bars and restaurants at great locations, cosmopolitan culture and paradise beaches, Mauritius is a great experience for beach, nature, culture and adventure enthusiasts.

We were recommended by friends to use Enchanting travel to help plan our Africa Experience. From first contact to the conclusion of the trip Enchanting travel supported our every need and looked after every detail. Our trip was absolutely flawless and an experience of a life time. I would be happy to discuss our trip with any potential customers as we feel our agenda gave us the perfect overview of sights, culture and safari activities. We came home and feel we missed nothing.

And every hotel and excursion was amazing, and we were greeted with welcoming open arms every where we stayed! Nothing was left to chance…and we felt so secure knowing Enchanting Travels had everything lined up for us! Even our lodges said Enchanting Travels was a top-notch company!
