The climate of Mayotte
Mayotte has been a French overseas department since 2011, which belongs to the archipelago of the Comores, but not to the Union of the Comores. Because Mayotte falls under the French tricolour you can pay here with euros. Mayotte lies in the Indian Ocean in the northern part of the Strait of Mozambique.The largest town and capital of the archipelago is Mamoudzou. In the department live approximately 200,000 people of which 60,000 live in the capital. The highest point in the island is the 660 meter high Benara volcano. Mayotte consists of the Isles of Grande Terre, Petite Terre, Chissioi Mtsamboro and Chissioi Mbouzi. Mayotte airport is situated on the Isle of Petite Terre near the place Dzaoudzi. The department attracts rather many tourists every year, who mainly come here to dive and scuba-dive. The coral-reefs lying off the coast of Mayotte are of an extreme beauty. This is because Mayotte has a so-called double coral-reef which has caused the formation of a natural aqarium so that a variety of smaller species of fish can live here quietly. In the island itself baobab trees, ylang-ylang and orchids in many species among which the vanilla-orchid can be found.

Mayotte has a tropical monsoon climate characterized by a distinct wet and dry period. The winter months are very wet and on an average there is more than 200 mm. of precipitation in these months . The summer months are a great deal drier but with an average of more than 40 mm. a month they can hardly be called dry. The temperatures in Mayotte are rather constant and are about 27 degrees Centigrade throughout the year. In the winter months this combination sometimes causes a high air humidity.
