We are officially in winter. The good news is, in Mauritius winter is sunny and still warm during the day. At night it can get quite chilly because of the high humidity levels, especially at higher altitudes (centre of the island). If you’re on the coast, you can still enjoy sunny days at the beach. In the end of June, it tends to get quite windy on the eastern and south-eastern coasts. Le Morne and Belle Mare lagoon are amazing windsurfing spots during this period.
