Mauritius has comfortable holiday weather all year round, although the southeast trade wind helps it never to feel too muggy. There are two seasons in Mauritius, summer from November to April and winter from May to October. The temperature in the coastal area varies between 22˚C (71.6˚F) in winter and 34˚C (93.2˚F) in summer. The sea temperature varies between 22˚C (71.6˚F) and 27˚C (80.6˚F). In the central part of the island, the maximum daytime temperature varies from about 19˚C (66.2˚F) in August to about 26˚C (78.8˚F) in February. The western and northern regions are warmer and relatively drier than the east and the south.
The depths of Mauritian ‘winter’ occur from July to September, when daytime temperatures drop from sticky to balmy. With less rain and humidity, this is one of the best times to visit. Weather-wise, the least agreeable period is from January to April when the long days can prove too hot and humid for some and the threat of cyclones is in the air. Visitors should be prepared to spend several days cooped up indoors during extra-heavy rains.
