The best time to visit Mauritius is during winter from May to early December when the weather is warm and dry, with an average temperature of 24°C (75°F). Sea temperatures remain above 23°C (73°F).

Summer, from December to April, is hot, humid and wet, with an average temperature on the coast that ranges from a nigh time low of 20°C to a day time high of 33°C (68°F to 91°F).

Rain showers are interspersed with plenty of sunshine – up to seven hours a day. Sea breezes keep the high temperatures from become oppressive and water temperatures hover around 28°C (82°F).

The west coast receives less rainfall then the south and southeast coasts: Port Louis, receives the least rain of anywhere else on the island, and the popular resorts of Trou aux Biches, Flic-en-Flac and Grand Baie see less rain than Ile aux Cerfs, which is located on the eastern side of the island.

Cyclones between January and March typically last for a day or two.

The mountain plateau is around 5°C cooler and it can rain here at any time of year.

Mauritius is a year-round destination – despite the wet season – and as such doesn't entertain a high or low season.
