    The Weather in Bali and Best time to go


    Bali weather follows two seasons: dry and wet, although you can expect mostly warm and humid days throughout the year. Dry season is May to September, with typically sunny days and an average temperature of 31 degrees Celsius. Most consider this mid-year period the best time to go to Bali, offering a good balance between sun, sand and surf. Wet season is October to April with occasional downpours and overcast skies. Windy months are between June and August.

    1) Best Time to Go to Bali: May to August!

    Although preferences vary, for cooler times in Bali, the best time to visit is May to August, when humidity levels on the island are at its lowest. During this period the air is drier and pleasant for outdoor activities and overland sightseeing tours. The skies in Bali are also clear and blue during this time, which is also great for outdoor and landscape photography.

    2) 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. Average daytime temperatures in the cooler highlands average from 21 to 27 degrees Celsius, dropping sharply low during night time.

    Sunrise: between 05:50 and 06:23

    Sunset: between 18:15 and 18:47

    3) 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, or 'Idul Fitri'. 

    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.
