Re: Honeymoon to Mauritius in August 2011
The eastern and southern coastal parts of Mauritius is definitely the windiest spots in August. If I was to go to Mauritius for a honeymoon, I would prefer to stay on the western side of Mauritius since that's where the the sunniest weather occurs. Also, the western side is sheltered from the south easterly winds as well as most of the showery weather. Most people prefer to stay away from the wind in August.
As for your concern about reports saying it's cold and windy there. As I've just mentioned, it's true it will be windy in August on the south eastern parts but it won't be on the western side. I wouldn't be concerned by the temperature. You certainly think you're in the tropics since overnight temperatures drop down to only about 16-17°C before reaching 23-26°C during the day over most coastal parts of Mauritius.
