When is the best time for a Bali Vacation

Blog

Although Bali’s temperatures are pretty stable throughout the year, there is a distinct wet and dry season.
The dry season in Bali

The dry season, which runs from April to October, is the best time to visit Bali. The lack of rain throughout this season makes tourists in Bali more comfortable. The dry season in Bali offers mild temperatures with little rain and humidity, making it perfect for outdoor activities such as yoga, treking, exploring, and sunbathing.

This glorious weather, however, does not come cheap. The peak tourist season on the island occurs during these months. Room rates rise in July and August, so book early to avoid paying increased prices. You’ll often find discounted accomadation costs if you book just before (April, May, or June) or just after (September) peak season.

The wet season in Bali

Bali receives a lot of rain from Noember to March. In fact, there are very few days in January when it does not rain. The combination of humidity and high temperatures (averaging 90 degrees Fahrenheit) means you may wish to avoid these months. Another disadvantage of the rain is reduced visibility at the region’s dive spots, as well as persistent mosquitos. However, if you’re looking to save money and avoid tourism’s busy period, it would be the best time to visit Bali.

Key events to consider for your Bali Vacation

March:
Nyepi is a public holiday in Indonesia and a day of silence, meditation, and fasting. Bare in mind shops and even Denpasar airport will be closed.

May:
The Bali Spirit Festival, a vibrant celebration of yoga, music, and art, located in Ubud.

June – July:
The Bali Arts Festival is one of the island’s most popular events. This month-long celebration of Balinese culture takes place in Denpasar.

August:
The 17th of August marks Indonesian Independence Day (or Hari Merdeka), celebrated with parades and outdoor activities.

November:
Galungan, a 10-day festival commemorating the triumph of good over evil. If you’re traveling for a Hindu festival, keep in mind that Hindus in Bali often celebrate holidays differently than Hindus in India. For example, the Galungan feast is not observed in India but is very important in Bali.
