For those dreaming of escaping the winter blues with a trip to sun-kissed beaches and warm balmy evenings, Mauritius is the ideal destination for a winter getaway.
Mauritius’ summer runs from November to April with temperatures of between 21-30ºC during these months.
Here are 5 good reasons why you should visit Mauritius during the winter months:
1. Mauritian flowers and fruits
The Mauritian summer heralds the season for many of the island’s flowers and fruits. Visitors can enjoy succulent mangos, lychees and longans.
Those tired of the winter grey of the northern hemisphere will find themselves in a vibrant world of colourful blooms with many of the island’s trees, including the aptly named Flamboyant Tree, in full bloom from December onwards.
2. Perfect season for big game fishing
With the warmer weather the temperature of the ocean also rises to an average of 23-27ºC, bringing a vast array of fish to our waters. With the smaller fish come the larger predators including, throughout the Mauritius summer, the famous blue marlin as well as sailfish, barracuda, wahoo, yellowfin tuna and shark.
3. Diving in Mauritius
While diving is excellent all year round in Mauritius, the warmer water temperatures make this a perfect time to dive with a wealth of new marine life drawn to the area.
The increased numbers mean that divers may see a wide variety of exotic marine life including angelfish, parrot fish, moray, groupers, wrasses and sweetlips as well as a stunning array of corals and sponges.
4. A warm Mauritian welcome at Constance
The ultimate 5* luxury at the secluded Constance Le Prince Maurice, with its boutique feel and emphasis on personal service, is the perfect winter treat.
Or join the fun at the family-friendly Constance Belle Mare Plage where you can enjoy a raft of activities, spa facilities and water sports, enough to make even the most winter-weary bodies leap into action.
