When to travel
Mauritius enjoys a typically tropical climate with year-round heat, although the southeast trade winds help it to not feel too muggy. The best months to visit Mauritius are May to early December. Water sports enthusiasts and divers will want to avoid January and February, the peak cyclone months. Cyclones rarely hit Mauritius but cyclones way out at sea can bring days of squally rain.
The summer months are from December to April, when it can nevertheless be extremely humid, and the winter, such as it is, runs from May to November, and is cooler and drier. When the winds are at their strongest in July and August it can be blustery on the east coast, though the breeze brings welcome relief in summer.
Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa is on the east coast of Mauritius, on the Trou D’Eau Douce Bay. The airport is 42km away and the transfer time is approx. 50 minutes by private car.
