What’s the weather like in Mauritius in March?
Sitting off the southeast coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is an exotic island with a tropical climate to match. Temperatures are high all year round, although you’ll have quite a lot of rain if you’re going in March. This is because it’s in the wet season which runs from November to April. The cooler, drier season is between June and September. You’ll still get lots of hot and sunny weather if you’re going in the wet season though. The surrounding sea and south easterly winds will help keep you cool. Mauritius’ mountains mean you’ll be warmest and driest in the north and west, while the coast will warmer than it is inland.
The average high in Mauritius is 30ºC in March, and things stay nice and warm in the evenings. Temperatures only fall to 22ºC at night, so you won’t need to bring many warm clothes with you. A waterproof top is a good idea though, as there’s 191mm of rain over 17 days. You can still expect 12 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be extremely high so don’t forget your sun cream. The sea temperature is 28ºC, which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. Sunset’s around 6.30pm for much of the month.
