Mauritius in October
Low rainfall and warmer temperatures (maximum average of 26°C/79°F) make October an ideal month weather-wise for a holiday in Mauritius.
Highlights of the month/disadvantage + advantages
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 visit Mauritius. It’s the last good month of the year for surfing, and it’s also a great time to go scuba diving.
In late October or early November, the Hindu festival of lights – Diwali – sees a spectacular display of fireworks and lanterns as well as delicious festival foods.
