On the coast irrespective of the time of the year, you will need light and thin clothes, particularly cotton clothes. However, warmer clothes will be advisable during the evenings, especially on the central plateau. It is also important to note that the majority of the hotels in Mauritius will require their male guests to wear trousers and shirts for dinner in the restaurants. It is also advisable that you bring along your sports shoes since there are a variety of leisure activities offered in Mauritius including quad biking, hiking and biking among others. However, if you miss any of these essential clothing you can still purchase them in Mauritius as shops in Port Louis and Curepipe have a wide range of clothes.
