When to visit Mauritius
Mauritius is at its best from May to December. The island has a tropical climate, so temperatures don't vary too much throughout the year. Whenever you visit, you should get a few beach days. It's best to avoid Mauritius from January to March, as this is cyclone season and the weather can be temperamental (and very wet). The East Coast can be very windy in July and August.
The weather in Mauritius

The temperature average ranges from 21°C to 23°C, ideal for catching a tan on the beach or strolling through the national parks.
