October is the midpoint of the spring season with temperatures on the rebound from their coolest point. This also continues to be one of the drier times of the year and a good time to visit in order to see and experience all that Port Louis and the rest of the island has to offer. Now is also a good time to visit locations in the Southern Hemisphere as winter and cold conditions are beginning to move into areas north of the Equator.
What's The Weather Like In Port Louis In October
The overall average daily temperature for this time of the year is now a slightly warmer 22°C (72°F). From this point until January, the average daily temperature will continue to climb. Also climbing are the average afternoon high and overnight lows. The day will begin with temperatures bottoming out at 19°C (66°F). This is still cool enough for a light jacket before the shorts and short sleeves can come out during the afternoon hours when temperatures will approach an average of 24°C (75°F).
Water temperatures will mirror those on land and also be on the rise. As a result, it is still warm enough for holidaymakers to enjoy the waters surrounding the region. Temperatures during this time of the year are a warm 24°C (75°F).
Not only will visitors be able to enjoy the beach, but also the rest of the outdoors with an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day. Thanks to the island's location in the tropics, the amount of sun never varies too much from day to day or month to month.
The average amount of rainfall is also rather limited during this time of the year. The region will only receive an average of 41mm of precipitation. This rain comes over an average of 4 days. With the rain coming in short bursts, some of the showers and thunderstorms will be heavy in nature.
Port Louis Hotels In October
Le Sakoa Boutique Hotel

Port Louis Beaches For October
St. Felix Beach
The most beautiful beach on the southern tip of the island is St. Felix Beach. With white sand as well as beautiful blue water, the area is perfect for photographs. There are also plenty of trees for an additional vantage point. One drawback, however, is the water itself. Thanks to coral and strong currents, swimming is not recommended. However, with 8 hours of sunshine per day during October, there is plenty of time to rest and relax on the sand and soak up some rays.
Bars And Restaurants
One of the best Korean restaurants on the island and in Port Louis is Kimchi House. While you might have to look past the basic décor, the food is spot on and the house specialties include Korean BBQ and Korean Delight. The menu offers a wide array of food that can be made to taste for each individual customer.
While not a five-star restaurant, Meme's Gourmet offers some of the best Chinese food in the city. With a casual atmosphere, locals and tourists are encouraged to sit awhile and enjoy the family-style dishes. This is a good spot for either lunch or dinner.
Flic en Flac Casino
Those with some money to spend will enjoy the wide array of casinos on the island. The Flic en Flac Casino has numerous games to play and is open until 3:00am for all your gambling needs. It is a good way to spend a little time later in the evening to see if you get lucky enough to bring home some extra dough.
Things To Do In Port Louis In October
One way to see what is going on underneath the waves without having to don scuba gear is by taking a submarine tour. Blue Safari allows guests to dive down to 35 metres during a 40-minute tour of the bottom of the ocean floor. Guests receive a full safety briefing before each submarine dive and all portholes offer great views of the coral and passing fish.
From the bottom of the ocean to well above it, one of the best ways to see the island is by skydiving. While not for the faint of heart, Skydive Mauritius offers guests an adventure of a lifetime. With dry conditions in October, this is a great time to experience this thrilling activity.
