    Mauritius weather May

    What’s the weather like in Mauritius in May?

    Mauritius is in the Indian Ocean, to the east of southern Africa and Madagascar. This means the island has a tropical climate with hot weather all year round. Its closeness to the Tropic of Capricorn means it has a distinct wet season from November to April. May’s the first month of the year where the amount of rain reduces a lot, so you'll have lots of sun if you're going at this time. Coastal and south easterly winds will help to keep you cool, while the country’s mountains in the north and west are the warmest and driest regions.

    Averages

    The average high in Mauritius is 27ºC in May, which is perfect beach weather. Things stay nice and warm in the evenings too with temperature only cooling to 19ºC. The sea temperature is 26ºC, which is lovely for swimming, while humidity’s moderate. There’s 97mm of rain over 14 days, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be high so make sure you bring plenty of sun cream. Sunset’s at around 5.45pm for much of May.
