Under the tropics, we have almost eight months
of summer and four months of mild winter.
Summer occurs between the
months of September and April, eight months during which we have
12-13 hours of daylight (5.30am to 6.30pm). The average temperature
on coastal regions is 30ºC, with a peak of 34ºC and the

3 very strong ones, with gusts of nearly 200km/h. Seas are rough.
Winter is very mild in Mauritius
with a minimum of 12ºC on the central plateau and maximum of
26ºC on coastal plains. Between May and August, we have occasional
anti-cyclones, which bring in rain and wind, especially on high
