Mauritius In September - Weather, Events and Activities!

September is the beginning of the humid warm summer season in Mauritius with hot and sunny weather. The daily temperature reaches up to 26 degrees Celcius but the humidity is still low in September. The north and west Mauritius are comparatively better in September than the south and east. Since there is very little rainfall during this month, it is ideal for sightseeing and hiking in Mauritius. It is also the best month for whale spotting, windsurfing and sailing. The average sea temperature in September remains around 24 degrees Celcius which is comfortable for swimming.

September is also the month when Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated throughout the world, and it's no different in Mauritius as well. Ganesh idols are taken to the temples such as Ganga Talao for worshipping, and later at the end of the ceremony, they are taken to the river banks and beaches to immerse them in the water with the setting sun in the backdrop. September 9th is celebrated as Father Laval Day when all Mauritians visit the tomb of Father Laval at Port Louis inside Sainte Croix and pay their respects. So, if you visit Mauritius in September, you get the chance to witness these festivals as well.
