Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean in July

July weather and when to go

July sees the arrival of the south-east trade winds in the Seychelles which bring lots of seaweed to the shallows. Unfortunately this makes the stunning shells this island nation is known for, more difficult to see, but there will be other beaches around the island that still boast gin-clear shallows at this time.

The climate in the Maldives will be mostly warm and dry (as it is for the majority of the year) and July is a popular time to visit. However, there will be some rain which usually comes in the form of short, sharp downpours. 

Why not relax at your hotel and perhaps enjoy a massage until the rains pass?

The weather in Mauritius in July/August can be quite variable with a micro-climate bringing some strong winds in certain areas across the island. Therefore, water visibility isn’t as clear as earlier in the year and temperatures are a bit cooler. Highs peak at around 23 degrees so this isn’t the best month for those looking for scorching temperatures. July is a very good time for surfing on the west coast of Mauritius though, and hiking can be great at this time so it can be ideal for people looking for a more adventurous holiday.

The temperatures in Reunion are slightly colder in July than earlier in the year, particularly in the Cirques, so plenty of layers are needed if you wish to hike the trails of Salazie, Cilaos or Mafate.
