Mahe Climate & Weather

Mahé lies close to the equator, and the annual temperatures remain fairly constant, with average daytime temperatures at about 80°F (27°C). At higher altitudes, temperatures are lower, especially at night-time. Mahé's dry season technically runs from May to October but travellers should note that during this period the southeast monsoon winds can bring brief showers every few days; these rain showers provide some relief from the heat and generally don't dampen the holiday spirit in any way. From December to March, the monsoon arrives bringing heavy rainfall and high humidity, especially in the coastal regions.

Mahé can be enjoyed at any time of year, but visitors do tend to avoid the monsoon rains between December and March. The best time to visit depends on desired activities.
