Highlights of the month/disadvantage + advantages

Trou aux Biches

October sees an uptick in tourist numbers but it’s still not yet one of the busiest months, so it’s a wonderful time to travel to Mauritius. It’s the last good month of the year for surfing and it’s also a great time to go scuba diving.

Taking place in late October or early November, the Hindu festival of lights – Diwali – is sees a spectacular display of fireworks and lanterns as well as delicious festival foods.
