Mauritius is blessed with a tropical climate.
On the coast, the dry and windy tropical weather makes a pleasant climate throughout the year.
Mild in winter (June, July August) with an average temperature of 20/25°, it is warmer in summer (November, December, January) with an average of 30/35°. The temperature goes down markedly, however, in the hilly hinterland. Only in winter, one needs to bring along something warm for a few cool evenings.
