Indian Ocean in April

April weather and when to go

The Indian Ocean islands are fairly year-round destinations, so whenever you wish to travel you are likely to find somewhere great to explore with warm temperatures and miles of stunning beach on which to relax. Snorkelling is good at any time of year but is particularly good in the Seychelles in April thanks to metres of clear visibility and pleasant water temperatures. April is also a good time for bird watching in the Seychelles as it is breeding season so you will be able to watch unique mating displays and see some interesting plumage.

If you’re thinking of travelling to the Maldives, April is a great time to travel as not only is the weather warm and dry, but it is the best time to witness whale sharks off the coast and seeing these gentle giants is truly a sight to behold. 

The rains may commence towards the end of the month but you can easily combine a trip to the Maldives with some of the other Indian Ocean islands which have drier spells at this time.

April is a crossover period in Mauritius with the cyclone season of January to March having finished, but with the long dry period yet to start. Days will be hot and humid with temperatures standing around 30 degrees.

Finally, April is a shoulder season in Reunion Island so rates will be low and beaches and hiking trails are likely to be quiet. Temperatures and long dry days still remain though, which make it a fantastic time to travel.
