the best time of year to holiday in Mauritius?
With a reasonably consistent climate all year Mauritius is a year round destination for many reasons,
These are the peak season for visitors escaping the cold weather in the northern hemisphere. These are the hottest months of the year, and are a good time of year for snorkelling and diving but also those with rain and a chance of cyclones.
The temperature cools from the heat of the summer over these months, but the rain has finished, generally the skies are clear and sunny and in the earlier months the sea conditions are relatively calm and therefore good for snorkelling and diving.
Visitors should be aware of cooler and sometimes windier weather in these months, particularly on the East Coast. With good value prices and holiday periods in the northern hemisphere it’s still a good time to visit Mauritius.
The temperatures rise through these months, which should enjoy clear sunny days.
The sea conditions are at their best for diving and snorkelling from this point onwards, through the summer months.
Christmas is a busy time on Mauritius. The daytime temperature is high and although there is a chance of rain, the sea conditions are good and visitors enjoy their stay.
