Best time to go to Trou deau Douce

The best time to visit Mauritius is pretty much whenever. You’ve got temperatures in the high 20s and early 30s with the odd cooling shower between December and April. This is the best season for diving. Then, May to November temps are more like mid-20s for a cooler climate – if you can call it that. It’s drier at this time, too.

Passports and Visas

British passport holders don’t need a visa to enter Mauritius but must have a valid passport. For the most up-to-date passport and visa info, visit

Don't forget to arrange your travel money and insurance before you go.

Health and safety

You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. If you’re planning on diving, check your policy covers you for this. For the latest health and safety information, visit
