In 2012, Mauritius was named the Indian Ocean's leading dive destination, and has been increasing in popularity ever since. It's an incredible island that has plenty to offer to divers. Located 2,000 kilometres off the coast of Africa, its coastline includes pretty reefs, drift dives, wrecks, caverns and coral arches. The best part of Mauritius is that you can dive and visit the country all year round! The country has a tropical climate with hot, humid and rainy summers from November to April, and cooler temperature and drier winters from May to October.
