WHEN TO GO
Mauritius sees sunshine all year round. Temperatures linger in the high 20s and early 30s between December and April, but the tropical climate in these parts means the odd rain shower will cool you down from time to time. And if you’re diving, this is the best time to visit. It cools down a bit between May and November, but temperatures are still beach-friendly – think mid-20s. It’s drier, too.
