Mark Twain once wrote that ‘Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius’. For the most part, it’s true: Mauritius is rightly famed for its sapphire waters, powder-white beaches and luxury resorts. But there’s so much more attraction to Mauritius than the beach, and it’s the kind of place that rewards even the smallest attempts at exploration. There’s hiking in the forested and mountainous interior and world-class diving and snorkelling offshore. There are boat trips to near-perfect islets and excursions to botanical gardens and colonial plantation houses. Mauritius is a fabulous culinary destination with great wildlife watching thrown in. And the real Mauritius away from the beach resorts – a hot curry of different cultures and quiet fishing villages – is never far away.
This quintessential tropical island in the southwest Indian Ocean, 500 miles off the coast of Madagascar, is a dream vacation spot. Luscious blue lagoons and coconut palms swaying on golden beaches are taken for granted on a Mauritius tour. Top that off with whale-watching excursions and swimming with a playful pod of dolphins off the west coast, and you’re in for an unbeatable holiday.
Mauritius is a melting pot, a unique blend of Indian, African, Asian, and French cultures and cuisines. Embrace this island’s distinctive way of life when you join Sega dancers on the each, swaying to the pulsating rhythm of traditional instruments.
The climate in Mauritius is tropical. Temperatures on the island are relatively constant during the year and the rainfall is distributed evenly over the year. There are two seasons in Mauritius.
Winter: May – November, Summer: December – April
During the winter, it is relatively dry, whereas in the summer it can often lead to heavy precipitation and tropical storms. Temperature on the coastal areas varies between 22°C in winter and 34°C in summer. The sea temperature varies between 22°C and 27°C.
The best time for diving is between November and April, when the sea is at its calmest. The North and West coasts are the best areas for diving enthusiasts as these are the most sheltered.
The best travel time for your Mauritius vacation is in the winter. The most comfortable temperatures are from September to January, when the weather is mild and the temperatures pleasant if you are seeking a more active vacation.
If you are planning a pure beach holiday in Mauritius, we recommend the months October to March.
