Quatre Bornes is located in western Mauritius. The most famous attraction here is the central market, which is loved by locals and tourists alike with hundreds of stalls selling textiles, crafts and other objects. We also recommend a hike to nearby Candos Hill for a breath-taking view of the surrounding area.
Mauritius has a tropical climate, with moderately high temperatures and humidity all year around. Temperatures never rise to such high levels that they become unbearable. The wettest period is from Jan-Mar (198-221mm per month); during these months cyclones may pass nearby giving occasional heavy rain/wind. May-Nov are much drier. There is between 7 and 9 sunshine hours per day throughout the year. The south and southeast coast are slightly windier than the rest of the Island.
