Best time to visit Mauritius
When is the best time to visit Mauritius? Mauritius is a wonderful country that has a tropical climate all year round. The southeast trade winds help to make sure it is never too muggy. The summer months in Mauritius are from December to April, when it can become extremely humid, and the winter months are from May to November, and this is when it is cooler and drier. The best time to visit Mauritius is May to early December. January and February are the peak cyclone months and you are probably best to avoid these months, even though cyclones very rarely hit Mauritius. Beach resorts have been built in such a way as to be able to resist strong cyclonic winds.
Temperatures son the coast are around 25°C and 33°C in the summertime and around 18°C and 24°C in the wintertime. The northern and western parts of Mauritius are warmer and drier than the eastern and the southern regions. The highlands in the centre are the wettest and coolest part of Mauritius, which makes it a great region for hiking and exploring the once volcanically active area. Strong winds in July and August can make it quite blowy on the east coast, although in the summer this is a welcome relief as it helps cool you down.
Apart from the Christmas and New Year peak, Mauritius does not have high and low seasons, which makes it ideal for a holiday at any time of year, but the most pleasant times to visit the island are between the months of April and June and between September and December. The best time for scuba diving is December through to March. The best time for surfing is June to August.
