The climate of the Isle Mohéli (Comoros)
Mohéli is an island in the Indian Ocean and, together with Grande
Comore and Anjouan, forms the Union of the Comoros. Mohéli is the
smallest and thinnest populated of the three. Altogether a little less
than 38,000 inhabitants live there, most of which live in the capital
of Fomboni. Most inhabitants of this island are Sunnite Muslims. The
island has a protected park: the Mohéli Marine Park. Since the rise of
the ecotourism the island has become more and more popular with the
so-called backpackers, who come here to see the turtles laying their
eggs and to swim with dolphins in one of the many bays.
Mohéli has a tropical monsoon climate which is mainly characterized by
a rainy period and a relatively drier period. The temperatures here
are more or less equal throughout the year. Most precipitation here
falls in the first six months of the year. During these months there
is a higher level of air humidity here. On an average the temperature

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
