What is the best time to visit Mauritius?

May to December (summer) is the best time to visit Mauritius, although the tropical climate of Mauritius is quite favourable for a vacation at any time of the year. The beaches are beautiful and sunny, and the waters are clear. We do not recommend going to the east coast of Mauritius in July and August as the winds are the strongest during this time of the year. January to March is the wet cyclone season in Mauritius, however, January is also the peak season in terms of footfall. February is the warmest month of the year whereas July is the coldest month of the year in Mauritius, so make sure you pack accordingly if you’re travelling during these months.

Hiking and other outdoor tours are perfect during this period. For those who wish to spend a relaxing day on the beach as well as engage in enthralling water sports, the months of May till late October is the best time to travel to Mauritius.
