November is the start of summer in Mauritius. Officially, October is the transition month from ‘winter’ to summer and November is considered the first real month of the summer season. November is considered one of the best months to visit Mauritius. Depending on the part of the island, November is either the driest or second driest month. The humidity of the summer has not kicked in yet, but temperatures are on the rise.
Daytime temperatures become progressively hot as the month goes on. Along the coast, average maximum temperatures are in the upper 20s at the beginning of the month and in the low 30s by the end. Nighttime temperatures are still quite comfortable, typically falling to around 20 degrees along the coasts, with upper teens being common in the beginning of the month. Daytime temperatures will rise only slightly during the coming summer season, but nighttime lows will rise significantly as the humidity increases throughout December.
November is a dry month. Both precipitation and humidity are relatively low. If you like warm weather, but not excessive humidity, November is a great month to visit.
For most of the island, November the driest month of the year. It’s very possible you won’t see any rain during your one or two week vacation, and if you do it will likely be short lived and not particularly heavy. While it is possible to see heavy rain during November, it is quite rare.
The wind-producing anticyclones of the winter have abated, and cyclones are very rare in November. This makes November a calm month.
Technically the cyclone season in Mauritius is from November to April, but cyclones in November are very rare.
November is the sunniest month in Mauritius. You can expect abundant sunshine anywhere on the island.
Sea temperatures rise to around 25 degrees in November, which is slightly warmer than the 23-24 degrees experienced in the Mauritian winter. Sea temperatures generally lag air temperatures by a month or two, so the sea will be a refreshing break from the soaring daytime temperatures.
