Best Time to Go to Bali

From May to August, the humidity levels in Bali drop to its lowest, offering you cool breezes by day and pleasant sweat-free nights, good for long stays and overland sightseeing excursions. The drier season also means pleasant Bali weather with clear blue skies and a lot of sun on this island just eight degrees south of the equator. However, anomalies can happen anytime and as with almost any other place in the world, the weather is hard to predict.

Hottest Time in Bali

Balmy Bali weather in the coastal areas can reach humidity levels of up to 75%, and the island receives an ample 12 hours of sunlight with average daytime temperatures ranging from 27 to 32 degrees Celsius. Sunrise is between 05:50 and 06:23 and sunset between 18:15 and 18:47. Average daytime temperatures in the cooler highlands average from 21 to 27 degrees Celsius, dropping sharply low during night time.

Low Season in Bali

Bali usually sees its ‘peak’ season around Christmas and New Year, from December 24 to January 5, and a dry season equivalent between July 1 and September 30. From October through November, and right after the New Year, hotel bookings in Bali are usually at their lowest. Widely regarded as the 'low' season, the usually wet Bali weather around these months see residents having their umbrellas and ponchos at hand.

This is when you can expect lower hotel rates, together with all sorts of benefits on offer. You can also anticipate lesser crowds during these months. Also, you can enjoy quieter roads, thus faster access times from your hotel to locations of interest during certain national holidays, such as the Muslim celebration of Ramadan, with its peak on the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, 'Idul Fitri'. Idul Fitri falls on 17-18 July 2015, with 15, 16, and 20 July marked as joint holidays.

The reason for this ‘quieter’ scene is due to much of the non-Balinese populace fleeing the island to head home for the holidays. A similar situation in the dense southern region and business districts of Bali occurs over the Nyepi, 'silent day' or Saka New Year celebrations when residents return to their respective regencies to rejoice with their families.
