Mauritius has a sub-tropical climate, meaning it is warm all year round with rainfall tending to be in heavy and short lived showers. December to April are the hottest months at around 30oC, also the wettest and most humid. May to August are the coolest months at around 25oC with less humidity and rainfall.

Surfing is good from June to August while the best time for big game fishing is October to March when the big predators hunt closer to the shore.
