Situated near the Tropic of Capricorn, Mauritius has the advantage of a subtropical climate. The climate is fairly acceptable to everyone and the heat is never unbearable.

There are 2 seasons: summer (November to April), with an average temperature of 30°; and winter (May to September) with a variation of temperatures from 17° at night to 24° in mid-afternoon. In between, a pleasant period from September to November with temperatures between 25° and 28°  Mauritius does not suffer from a monsoon climate.

The Cyclone season generally occurs between January to March. Tropical cyclones are a common occurrence in Mauritius and tend to disrupt the weather for only about four days per year bringing a lot of rain in the region. Visitors should be prepared to spend a few days indoors during extra-heavy rains.

The sun rises at 5.00am and sets at 7.00pm in Summer and in Winter, rises at 6.00am and sets at 6.00pm.

December through March is the best time for diving, when the waters are at their clearest; June through August is best for surfing; and October through April is excellent for big game fishing, when the large predators feed close to shore.
