Mauritius is well known for its tropical climatic conditions which are mostly 12months of sunny days even it is supposed to have two seasons: winter and summer.
These two seasons consist of seven months of hot, dry summer from November to May and five months of dry winter from June to October. The island is made up of a Central Plateau of about 500 metres above sea level and a Coastal Plain. The winter temperature varies from 22° C to 26° C on the Coastal Plain and 17° C to 26° C on the Central Plateau and in the summer days the temperature can climb to 35°C on the Coastal Plain whilst the Central Plateau it rarely goes above 27° C.

It can be said that the average sunny day through out the island is 7 days per week. In summer the sun rises at 5.00am and sets at 19hrs and in winter the sun rises at 6am and sets at 17.30. The climate is so good through out the year that it makes holiday people just jump out their bed to experience outdoor sports like surfing, kite surfing, scuba diving and excursions in sea can be practiced through out the year. It is advisable to use sun protection products with UVA-filter agents to avoid sunburn

In Mauritius there is a cyclonic period which occurs normally in summer season between November and April. The cyclones with strong winds and heavy rain can last for three or four days and it is advisable to listen to all the cyclone warnings and abide by the advice broadcast. Mauritius has been visited by some really violent cyclones; history has kept record of one such cyclone in 1872 and some people still remember that of 1945 and many more have bad memories of Carol in 1960. Mauritius has not suffered from any violent cyclones lately but it can happen any time.
