Climate

Mauritius is the perfect destination for your holidays under the sun. The island enjoys a pleasant climate with a mild temperature all year round, and only two seasons, summer, from October to April, and winter that extends from May to September. The heat peaks are felt between December and February, always accompanied by a high humidity level, while the lowest temperatures and the strong winds come between July and September. It should be noted that the average temperature in winter is 22ºC…

The coastal regions are warmer and less rainy, while the central plateau, which is 400 to 600 metres above sea level, has a cooler temperature and is also more humid. There is a significant change in temperature between the centre and the coast. The West and North of the island are the warmest and most protected areas, while the East is subject to the south-east trade winds all year round, mild and pleasant in summer, and cooler and stronger in winter.

The rainy season is usually expected in February and strong winds in July and August for the greatest pleasure of sailing and surfing enthusiasts. Since Mauritius is located in the tropics, it is under the threat of cyclones during summer, but the island being small, it is most often spared by the storm trajectories. The buildings have been designed to resist bad weather and officials are all aware of the protocol to apply in time of cyclone – so, you will be safe here in case of a storm!
