Mauritius weather overview

The pretty volcanic island of Mauritius is a popular holiday retreat, largely because of its climate which, although tropical, is tempered by the surrounding seas so that temperatures never soar uncomfortably high.

However, high humidity can sometimes make the nights oppressive. Rainfall is substantial throughout the year, particularly on high ground and on the southern coasts which are most exposed to the southeast trade winds.

The wettest period is from December to April and, if you are unlucky, you could be caught in an occasional cyclone.

From May to November, rainfall is lowest and the weather is generally sunny and delightful, though cooler.
