Average time to visit
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).

Just 10 minutes drive from the airport makes Shandrani one of the most easily accessible resorts. The all-inclusive package makes this a brilliant option for families wanting no fuss. Everyone can enjoy the wide selection of water sports and land sports on offer, and children have the added bonus of the kids club. Rent bikes, play tennis, boules or golf for the active types, or for some quiet time visit the peaceful spa with a private pool.
Alice Moseley (Staff)
An excellent destination for those wanting a hotel where you can be on an all inclusive basis. This not only includes food and drink at the restaurants and bars but within your mini bar! The hotel has three beaches on offer spread over 2.4km. Not far from the airport making transfers ever so quick, particularly after a long flight. Great accommodation on offer with family rooms having a small separate bunk room for the kids. Lots of water sports to choose from, there is never a dull moment!
Sarah Jane Tichacek (Staff)
The Shandrani does All Inclusive brilliantly well - even Champagne is included at certain times of day! The rooms are really spacious and all have views to the sea. There are three beaches, but by far my favourite was the wild beach, which, unprotected from the coral reef has beautifully soft sand. Be sure to have dinner one night at the Teak Elephant, where you can enjoy an 8 course tasting menu of Thai food.
