As a Brit, one of the most striking things about life in Mauritius that has changed my life completely is the amount of time I spend outdoors. Before moving to Mauritius I lived in Dubai for seven years and due to the stifling temperatures of up to 50 degrees C, spent most of my time in air-conditioned buildings.

Mauritius weather and its temperatures are far more forgiving and conducive to outside life. Temperatures range between 20 - 35 degrees Celcius throughout the year and although this year's (2022) winter seems to have been one of the coldest on record, being from the UK it's still been warm in my opinion!

Mauritius has an abundance of activities for the outdoors with all the sports, watersports, beaches, waterfalls, hikes, and social areas found all over the island. The beaches are, of course, one of the best places to enjoy the outdoor life in Mauritius as everything seems to revolve around its coastline, such as catamaran cruises, picnics, snorkeling, horse riding, hotels, restaurants, etc, etc.

Go to our Mauritius Top 10 Beaches page to find out more and where to find them. All the beaches in the top 10 list are accessible by the public so you can go whenever you want to.
