Best times to visit

Summer Season

Most people choose to visit Mauritius during the island’s summer, November to April, to make the most of warmer temperatures. In general, the north is warmer and drier than the south. 

Winter Season

Mauritius enjoys warm tropical weather year round, but the coolest months are May to October. As a tropical island rain is common, but sometimes showers can last for an hour late afternoon and dry up very quickly.  

Our Favourite Season

Our favourite months to visit Mauritius are December and April. The weather is warmer, the clear, blue Indian Ocean is more inviting than ever, and the markets of Grand Baie are bustling with bargains.
