Best Times to Visit Bali

The best time to visit Bali is between April and October, the island's dry season. Bali experiences only two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. Throughout the year, the daytime temps hover between the mid-80s and low 90s, with only the humidity and precipitation patterns changing. The lack of rain during the summer season makes Bali more comfortable for beachgoers.

Bali's dry season provides warm temperatures without too much rainfall and humidity—ideal for outdoor activities like hiking, sailing, and sunbathing. However, this pleasant weather doesn't come cheap. These months are the island's peak tourism season. July and August witness a spike in room rates, so book your hotel early to avoid exorbitant costs.

Key Events:

  • Nyepi (March-April)
  • Bali Arts Festival (June-July)
  • Nusa Dua Festival (August)
  • Indonesia Independence Day (August 15)

November through March, Bali endures a tremendous amount of rain. In fact, January sees very few days that aren't accompanied by drizzle. While the rain may not be enough to deter you, the combination of humidity and high temperatures (averaging 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the day) might make you reconsider a low-season visit. That said, if you're looking for a bargain, you'll have the most luck during this time.

Key Events:

  • New Years Day (January 1)
  • Nyepi (March-April)
