When is the best time to visit Mauritius?

Most of the year Mauritius has sunny days, blue skies and warm weather; perfect for beach holidays and honeymoons. The subtropical climate means that temperatures always fall between 20-30°c, with the average temperature being an idyllic 26°c. The best time to visit is from April to October when humidity is low and the four islands are at their best. The rains of January and February have made the forest areas incredibly verdant and vibrant, and just after the rains, in March, the bird life can be seen and heard throughout the islands. Between April and October water activities are at their best, and light winds make the surrounding ocean excellent for sailing and kitesurfing.

From October to December, temperatures and humidity are high as Mauritius enters its summer season. It’s still a good time to visit the islands, although expect a little rain in these months, as the wet season creeps in. The only time to avoid visiting Mauritius is in January and February, as this is cyclone season with heavy rainfall across the whole island. The Indian Ocean cyclones keep the islands green and are generally welcomed, but most hotels will close for this season, so accommodation options are more limited.
