Mauritius in April

April is a hot, humid month although there’s less rain than in earlier in the year. There’s still a slight chance of cyclones.

Highlights of the month/disadvantage + advantages

Le Cannonier Hotel in Mauritius

The island is busy over the Easter holidays, so if you prefer quieter beaches then plan to travel outside of this period.

April is the start of the best time of year for surfing in Mauritius, and it’s also a great month for scuba diving.
