weather in Mauritius
based upon past history.
Mauritius being a tropical island, you will
observe from the table below the two important elements involved
when deciding the best time for you
to visit this beautiful island - humidity versus the temperature.
to go :
Located in the Indian Ocean just above the Tropic of Capricorn,
Mauritius weather benefits from a sub-tropical climate with an average
water temperature of 72° F, making it an all year round destination.
However for such a small island there can be a marked difference
in temperature and rainfall from one side of the island to the other.
The central plateau is much cooler than the surrounding coastal
areas and can experience as much as double the rainfall.
The prevailing trade winds keep the East side of the island cooler
and also tend to bring the rain.
The locals took all of this into account when a large proportion
of them settled on the West coast, which is simply noted for its
better weather on Mauritius, particularly when the trade winds begin
to blow the stronger.
The summer months, November to April
provide coastal teperatures of up to 34 degrees Celsius. The cooler
months May to October are still wonderfully warm with the average
temperature of 24 degrees Celsius.
The temperature of the interior regions particularly the more central
part of Mauritius at around 600 metres is usually around 5 degrees
The most pleasant of periods to go
to Mauritius, in my opinion, are either April to June or
September to November. - Kirstine.
