With a mild climate and up to eight hours of sunshine every day, Mauritius only has two seasons. Summer (October to April) is hot, wet and humid with an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, and winter (May to September), is warm and dry with comfortable temperatures around the 20-degree Celsius mark.
While most travellers will agree that the best time to visit Mauritius is between May and October, there’s still something special in the tropical air at other times of the year; it all depends on your expectations.
Mauritius is almost entirely circled by powder-white beaches, azure lagoons, and coral reefs – the perfect destination for a sun-sand-and-sea holiday.
The marine life of Mauritius is considered to be among the most plentiful in the Indian Ocean. Diving and snorkelling off the island will give you the chance to discover more than four hundred sea creatures and two hundred species of coral – not to mention sponges and anemones!
With its bounty of marine life and mild weather conditions, Mauritius has the hook when it comes to deep sea fishing. Anglers can look forward to catching dorado, tuna, bonita, blue marlin and more.
Mauritius is crisscrossed with hiking trails – each one leading somewhere beautiful. Stroll through forests, wade into rivers, or climb sightseeing peaks; hiking in Mauritius will leave you with extraordinary memories.
The windier south and west coasts of Mauritius are ideal for surfers wanting to catch the perfect wave.
You can find quite a few whales around Mauritius, including dense-beaked whales, southern beaked whales, dwarf sperm whales, and the famous sperm whale. Seeing whales up close, surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of Mauritius, is an unforgettable experience.
