- Mauritius Luxury holidays
Mauritius is a tropical island where grey skies clear in a matter of minutes, and even the heaviest rainfall is highly localised and short-lived. It is a refuge for ocean lovers, with many of its activities based on its beaches, or in the waters off the coastline. The nightlife is an exception to this, and on Fridays and Saturdays many visitors prefer to keep their feet firmly on dry land and instead spend the evening in a bar or club, or even by taking advantage of the hospitality of a nearby hotel.
Keeping pace with the Mauritius winter
You could be forgiven for forgetting you are in the middle of Mauritius’ winter during a July or August stay, with temperatures still in the mid-20s, but Mauritius still devotes its time in this part of the year to some traditionally wintertime pursuits. Champ de Mars in Port Louis hosts a weekly Saturday afternoon horse racing meeting, the hustle and bustle of which contrasts nicely with the leisurely pace of island life and especially the relaxation enjoyed by many tourists during their holiday.
Life on the line in Mauritius
For an excursion you won't easily forget, consider turning your hand to deep sea fishing, which can be enjoyed in the waters around Mauritius. You can share a boat with several other fishermen, either from your own fellow travellers or by letting the skipper pair you up with other solo travellers - either way, this will make the total cost a little cheaper. Spend a half-day or full-day on the waves, battling with marlin and tuna up to 100 kg or more.
When should I visit Mauritius?
Mauritius is in the Southern Hemisphere, and as such, its summertime coincides with winter in the UK. That means temperatures are at their highest, an average of 27-28°C, throughout the period from December to April. However, they only drop by very little, to around 23°C, in the coldest months of July and August. The days are also longer during the UK's winter months, with about eight hours of sunlight per day from October through to January, compared with six hours in April-September. Finally, rainfall is typically higher in January-April, but rarely passes 10cm in total.
