The volcanic Mascarene Islands are located about 800 km east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean just above the Tropic of Capricorn. The largest of this island group, Mauritius has a surface area of 720 square miles with a central plateau which is about 400 metres above sea level. Mountains scattered throughout the island, tropical forests and plants are other features that add to the natural beauty of the island of Mauritius. With more than 90 miles of white sandy beaches the island hosts the world's third largest coral reef which almost surrounds it.

The Mauritius weather is pleasant all year around, with mean temperatures ranging from 17.8C to 27.6C on the Central Plateau in the summer (November to April) and 19.1C to 31.1C on the Coast.

In the winter (May to October) the weather is still comfortable with mean temperatures on the Central Plateau in August (the coolest month) ranging from 15.1C to 21.8C and on the north coast in July from 16.1C to 25.7C 1.

During the warm season the Mauritius weather can be disturbed by the passage of cyclones; though in the past 90 years only about 12 days have seen significant damage inflicted on the island and there is therefore little cause for worry.
