Best time to visit Mauritius
- As Mauritius is located in the southern hemisphere, seasons are the opposite to those in the UK.
- Temperatures peak in the summer months, averaging between high 20s and low 30s, whilst the winter season is slightly cooler
- Between July and August, the evenings can be cool – so a light sweater may be required when sitting outdoors
- There’s no real rainy season in Mauritius, however there can be short downpours throughout the year, though they never tend to last long
- The main difference between the east and west coasts of Mauritius is the winds – the east coast experiences trade winds in winter which can actually be a welcome relief from the balmy temperatures. You’ll find that the hotels on the east coast are designed with this in mind, with public areas protected from coastal winds.
Mauritius holiday highlights
Larger than the ‘one resort’ islands of the Maldives but still not much bigger than Surrey, Mauritius is an Indian Ocean Golfing Holiday destination with something extra. East of Madagascar, this lush island is more than just pure white sands – although there’s no denying that these are some of the most stunning beaches in the world.
The island is surrounded by a huge reef sheltering the shallow lagoons, where waters meet a shoreline of white sandy beaches. These lead to sugar cane plains, waterfall and forests of ebony and eucalyptus, before finally reaching the peaks of the mountains. Mauritius has a number of world class hotels including the Tamarina Golf & Spa Boutique Hotel.
Away from the beaches and the golf, Mauritius is bursting with historic sights and natural attractions. Visit the Tamarin Falls – a natural collection of waterfalls in southwest Mauritius, which, though tricky to get to, are well worth a visit. Black River Gorges is Mauritius’ sole national park – a wild area of thick indigenous forest in the central highlands that is home to over 300 plant species and rare bird life.
The really is a truly beautiful and diverse island and one that, if affordable, will make a tremendous golfing holiday in a great surrounding with fantastic weather!
