To complete our attempt to answer the question “When to go on holiday in Mauritius,” here’s an interesting map that shows you the sunshine found in Mauritius (and in the World) in January (top) and April (bottom) . To summarize, the darker parts are the more sunny.
Indeed, January is very sunny in Mauritius island, with a sun that rises around 5:30 am and sets around 7 pm.
Note that the sunlight is not really the same in all the destinations in the Indian Ocean: when Mauritius and La Reunion are very sunny in January, Maldives and Seychelles are less. In April, the opposite is true. In all cases, there is no doubt that the overall level of sunshine in the region makes you dream !
