Grand Gaube in May?

Beitragvon diver69 » Mi Apr 25, 2007 14:05

This post comes as a follow-up to one I previously started with regards to comparing the West and the East coast during the month of May in terms of diving and weather/sea conditions for a couple traveling with a 4 year old child. From the replies to that post it seems that the West coast seems a slightly better option for the month of May (particularly for the part that relates to a 4 year old child who likes to make sand castles) although the East coast remains a viable option. This brings me to the following question: weather-wise (i.e. in terms of winds and waves) is Grand Gaube subject to the same conditions than the whole of the East coast in May? In other words, is Cap Malheureux the real turning point when it comes to being protected from the prevailing winds and rougher sea in May in the northern part of the island?

Thanks in advance for all of you who will take the time to offer their advice.

Hi Diver,
The weather in may is pleasent everywhere in Mauritius in may with daytime temperatures of 27-29 degrees celsius on the coast line. The southeast trade winds prevail more or less all year round but as it gets cooler in the months of june, july and august, it makes it feel considerably colder( wind chill effect!) even if in real terms the daytime temperatures rarely drops below 20-26 degrees on the coast. It is true that the east coast is more exposed to these winds which may increase in intensity due the presence of anticyclones which are more frequent in winter.
Grand Gaube is on the northeast coast and I am certain that the weather will suit your needs in may. To be certain however, I would still recommend the west coast due to the fact that it is always sheltered and usually gets much less rainy days compared to the east and the central plateau.Please bear in mind that Mauritius is a very small island and you can travel to any point in about 1 hour.
Regards, Gerard :cool:
