Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it never to feel too muggy. The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier.
The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. January and February, the peak cyclone months, are best avoided by water-sports enthusiasts and divers. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius (although Rodrigues has suffered far more regularly than the mainland) but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
Coastal temperatures range between 25°C and 33°C in summer and between 18°C and 24°C in winter. On the plateau it will be some 5°C cooler. The highlands are also the wettest part of the island – it can rain here at any time of year, and even when it’s not raining the area can be cloaked in low-lying cloud. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Apart from the Christmas-New Year peak, Mauritius doesn’t really have high and low seasons. The situation is more dependent on outside factors (such as the French school holidays, which cause a big increase in demand and prices in August).
The best time to visit the UAE is between October and November and then February and March, when temperatures hang around the mid-20s and the humidity is under control. While December and January are generally considered the best months to go, the weather over the last couple of ‘winters’ has been unpredictable with occasional cloud and rain.
From Middle Eastern souks to palm fringed Indian Ocean beaches, this is a beach holiday with a twist. Dubai is constantly growing its myriad of shops, hotels and experiences (including skiing!), whilst Mauritius remains the quintessential beach holiday.
Your first stop is Dubai. This skyscraper clad city is buzzing with atmosphere, from the souks and gold markets to the tallest building in the world, all on the edge of wide, golden sandy beaches. Simply laze away the days by the pool or in the spa or, alternatively, take some fantastic trips out into the sand dunes, to far off Bedouin tents and star filled skies. You can also shop till you drop at the world's largest shopping mall!
When you've had your fill of the desert, fly down to the Indian Ocean to the stunning island of Mauritius. Palm fringed beaches and days without a care in the world await you. Everything you could possibly wish for in a relaxing and idyllic holiday is at your fingertips – let yourself be totally pampered or enjoy many the activities on offer on the island, the choice is yours.
If in Dubai on a Friday, why not partake in the favourite past time of the local expat community and enjoy an ever-so-social Friday brunch. Take your time and enjoy free-flowing champagne and cocktails accompanied by a mouth-watering feast for the palate.
Located in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius provides warm, clear waters, making both snorkelling and scuba diving very popular. From family diving, to reef or wreck diving, it is possible to dive here at all levels of experience.
Golfing in Mauritius is popular, with seven luxury golf courses. Mauritius guarantees a five star golfing experience whether you choose the challenging course at Ile Aux Cerfs or perfect your technique at The Links course at Constance Belle Mare Plage.
Embark on a peaceful sailing to Ile Aux Cerfs and revive your senses whilst taking in the glorious sun and appreciating the beautiful surroundings of the tropical forests.
