The climate of Mauritius
Climate: There are no extreme temperatures either in summer or winter. In summer months, from November to April temperatures range from 23ºC to 33ºC, while winter, lasting from May to October, registers temperatures ranging between 17ºC to 23ºC. Dry and wet seasons are not clearly defined although one can experience occasional cyclones during the wettest months from December to March. Annual rainfall ranges from 900mm to 1500mm on the central plateau. Sea temperature in the lagoon varies from 22º to 27ºc. Mauritius is thus considered as an all-year round destination.
