The best time to visit Mauritius is towards the end of the year, from October through to December, when temperatures are hottest. However, Mauritius has an enviable subtropical climate that normally brings sun, warmth, and blue skies, so expect perfect beach weather for most of the year.

The Chamarel Mountains in the south can get rain at any time of year, which provides them with a luxuriant green covering, but the rest of the island generally only sees prolonged rain in January and February, when cyclones roll in from the Indian Ocean.

My favourite times to travel to Mauritius are between May and June, as well as during September and October. The dry, warm weather and fewer visitors make these months the perfect time to get away from it all in Mauritius.

Visiting Mauritius in August

August follows the pattern of July, with warm days that are perfect for sheltered beaches, but you will appreciate a jumper or coat in the evenings.

Events & Festivals

  • Ganesh Chaturthi festival (August or September): This Hindu festival honouring the elephant-headed god Ganesh is a public holiday in Mauritius. Colourful Ganesh statues are publicly and at home before being immersed in a body of water.
