May is also the start of best time to visit Mauritius The island has unique micro climates so can be different across the island at the same time, but May generally has pleasant temperatures and dry days. Northern and western parts of the island are usually the warmest and driest so choose accommodation in this area for the best chance of hot, sunny days. Mauritius can be quite quiet at this time so you may have long stretches of beach to yourself!
If you’re looking for more land-based activities, Reunion Island is great for hiking at this time with plenty of scenic routes to explore from May to October. The volcano, Piton de la Fournaise, is a popular attraction, although it is still very active so plan your trip carefully.
