BALI Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali appeals through its sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes and lush terraced rice fields that exude peace and serenity. It is also famous for surfers’ paradise! Bali enchants with its dramatic dances and colorful ceremonies, its arts, and crafts, to its luxurious beach resorts and exciting nightlife. And everywhere, you will find intricately carved temples.
Bali’s close proximity to the equator gives it a tropical climate, and visitors can expect to enjoy warm weather all year round.
The temperature in Bali stays fairly consistent throughout the year, ranging from a daily average of 26 °C (79 °F) in the cool season to 27 °C (81 °F) in the summertime. The warmest time of the year is between March and October, with slightly cooler temperatures from June to September.
The main weather change in Bali can be seen between its dry and rainy season when the amount of rainfall varies significantly. The wettest weather is usually between December and February, and the dry season is between April and October.
If you want the clear blue skies and high temperatures of the dry season but not the crowds, the best months to visit Bali are April, May, June, and September. The weather at this time of year is still warm and dry, and conditions are slightly less humid, but it’s just outside of that main tourist season. An added bonus of visiting at this time of year is that the cost of accommodation is significantly lower than during the high season. This means you can still enjoy glorious weather, but at a lower price and away from the busiest crowds!
Bali’s rainy season extends from October to March, with the wettest months being December, January, and February. However, you shouldn’t let this put you off visiting at this time of year. The words ’rainy season’ may conjure images of daily monsoons and waterlogged beaches, but in reality, the weather at this time of year is simply more changeable. Prepare for scattered showers and the odd day of rain, but be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, too! Visitors at this time of year will also get the best of Bali’s low season and can expect far fewer people and a way more relaxed atmosphere.
