Bali is situated approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. Thus, it is possible to anticipate a tropical, humid, and warm climate all year round – with two principal characteristic seasons: Dry Season and Rainy Season. Bali’s central mountains (volcanoes) include various peaks over 3,000 meters in altitude. There up, the temperatures are much cooler, and there is much more rainfall than in the coastal locations.
The Weather of Bali
The most suitable time to go to Bali depends mainly on the weather and high and low time, which impacts the total price for lodging. The high season is throughout July and August, during Easter Holidays and Christmas / New Year. Here is the time Bali is the busiest.
But for several reasons, the very best time to visit Bali will be April, May, June, and September, just before and after the massive season. It is still dry season, it is less humid, and space prices and villa rentals could be 30-50% more affordable than during the high season. Many shops provide promotions and sales. Restaurants are less crowded in mid-season months, and in general, Bali is somewhat more relaxed. October is not too bad either, nevertheless not as much rain as November. This weather prediction can change anytime. Make sure always to monitor the weather forecast for more information.
Those weeks are also ideal for getting water sport activities such as scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, etc. Waters are clear, the crowd not too bad. Also, important attractions and activities like the household parks and exciting things have fewer visitors, making the experience far more enjoyable. If you want to investigate more about the island and see the most important sightseeing areas, go to temples. Or maybe you can go for a day trip and excursion. These months will also be ideal.
And not to mention the traffic and hustle-bustle about the roads is more tolerable. Particularly in Kuta, Legian, and sometimes even Seminyak, the narrow lanes are filled during specific times in the afternoon with cars and bikes. Some vacationers love it this way and couldn’t envision a holiday differently. However, if you like it more quietly, Kuta and Legian may not be the ideal option throughout the high season.
Dry Season in Bali
Bali receives the most traffic during July & August. Temperatures are relatively steady all year round. Throughout Bali’s dry period, shores are generally clean, and Bali reveals its pretty side. An individual can still expect occasional rainfall. However, occasionally, even the locals are amazed at how dry a week through rainy periods may be and the other way around.
Rainy Season in Bali
Throughout the rainy season that’s typically from October to March, Bali becomes quieter. The sea is more demanding. The beaches plus the sea in the south (Kuta, Legian, Seminyak) could be quite filthy because of debris washed onto the coast during January and February. It’s not always happening, but it might happen and depends on wind currents and conditions.
During rainy season winds are stronger on the shore, the water currents pick it up and can rain. Although, usually the rain stops after a couple of hours and the sun shines again. A good deal of the times it rains during the evening and times are o.k. Very rarely, you’ve got a few times when it rains continually. In recent years it didn’t rain in Bali until December! And November was dry as any July or even August. Like in most parts of the planet, the weather becomes more unpredictable.
