Contrary to popular belief, the island nation of Mauritius is not warm and sunny all year round. Mauritius does have a combination of warm rainy season, along with a cooler rainy season. If you are on the lookout for hot weather and clear skies, then the best time to visit Mauritius will be during the peak summer season, between December, January and February.
Do be mindful however as the hottest seasons also see higher chances of tropical storms (commonly known as cyclones). For this reason, we would personally recommend beginning or mid-December if you truly want to enjoy warm temperatures and little to no chance of getting caught in a tropical storm.
Is there a rainy season in Mauritius?
As a tropical island, Mauritius has a combination of warm rainy season between January to March, along with a cooler rainy season between June and September. Surprisingly, the wettest months in Mauritius would be during the hottest summer months between December to April as this is when cyclones are more likely to strike with strong winds and heavy rainfall.
What is the coldest month in Mauritius?
July and August are the coldest months in Mauritius. This is when temperatures can go as low as 15 degrees Celsius. During these months, you might also experience strong winds on the East Coast and daily rain. However, since these are considered as the low season, they’re a great period if you want great offers and good deals on holiday packages to Mauritius.
What is the hottest month in Mauritius?
January and February are when temperatures get really high in Mauritius. During these months, you can experience up to 30-32 degrees Celsius at times, with the average temperature being 28 degrees Celsius. This is a great period to visit Mauritius if you intend on spending most of your time by the beach. That being said, do be mindful that the hottest months also mean higher probabilities of tropical cyclones!
