Best time to visit Mauritius

Mauritius enjoys warm weather all year round with moderate to high rainfall. Get the most comfortable weather conditions and the lowest rainfall by visiting the island nation during the seasons of winter (May – October) and early summer (November – December). These months will give you a break from the intense heat of the rest of the summer (January – April). With the conditions offered during this time, you can still enjoy the beaches and nature areas while avoiding the crowds that come during the mid to late summer season to enjoy the perfect beach weather, as well as the high hotel costs.
