Weather all year round
Mauritius borders Reunion Island. They are both subject to a tropical climate.
The best time to visit Mauritius is the beginning of summer in October, November and until mid-December before the arrival of the cyclones: the rainfall is low, the barometer is rising and the sky is blue to make the lagoon pale. April and May are also pleasant months, still relatively warm but not heavy. June, July, August are a little "cool" (water temperature around 23 °C), January, February, March a little hot and especially humid with risk of cyclonic passages.
The currency on the island is the Mauritian rupee (Rs). Apart from the high cost of the flight, which makes Mauritius one of the most expensive destinations, the cost of living is not expensive on the spot. You can eat a lot and very well for only a few euros. Be careful, accommodation rates are lower when booking a full week from France
French nationals must have a valid passport for the duration of their stay and a return ticket. Nationals of European Union countries do not need a visa for a stay of no more than 3 months. Attention: at the airport, it is mandatory to fill in a form stating the place of stay (name of the hotel or villa). If you are travelling while travelling, remember to plan at least one drop-off point for the first night on site
Hygiene. As food hygiene rules are generally well observed, there is no major risk except for poisoning or diarrhoea. Do not abuse the food sold by street vendors, but do not deprive yourself of tasting it either, especially since Mauritius is an island renowned for its street food.
Sea and beaches. Be careful, sea urchins and stone fish also like Mauritian beaches. It is recommended to walk in plastic shoes in rocky areas
No vaccinations required. Only conventional vaccines (diphtheria, tetanus, polio) need to be updated
