Travel Information for Bali Indonesia

Climate & Seasons

Owing to it's location 8° south of the Equator, Bali has a tropical climate. Annual temperatures range from around 30° C/90° F to around 24° C/75° F. Temperatures along to coastal areas are significantly warner than in the higher, mountain locations.

Bali has two distinct seasons, which are characterized as the Rainy Season and the Dry Season.

The Rainy Season

The rainy season generally occurs between the months of November and February when there is often daily rain. This period also brings higher humidities. The most predictable rainy periods fall between December and January and the days are hot and steamy - truly tropical. With the exception of the holidays over Christmas and New Years, there are fewer tourists in Bali during the rainy season.

The Dry Season

The dry season starts around March and lasts through October. The air feels cooler in the dry season, because it’s less humid - so many people consider this the best time to visit Bali. There can be occasional showers during the night time or early in the morning, but generally the dry season is just that–dry. In the months of June to August there is usually a very refreshing cool breeze all day long. The central mountain areas can actually feel quite cool in the dry season, especially at night.
