When to Visit

Below gives you information and a rating of the best time of year to visit.


The wettest month though the rain normally comes in short sharp bursts so the majority of the day will still be sunshine. Expect humid conditions for this reason.


Short and sharp intense rain will continue as will the humidity. If you’re a diver, the water won’t be the clearest so avoid this time of year.


Afternoon showers will continue to be normal as will the intense humidity. Not the best time to be here if you can avoid it though the inland can offer some respite.

Nyepi is the Balinese new year and this happens in March. Whilst this may sound exciting, this is traditionally celebrated in silence and tourists are expected to stay in their hotel rooms.


The wet season is starting to finish, hooray! Warm, dry conditions throughout the day will begin to become the norm. Diving conditions are now becoming much better.

The Bali Spirit Festival normally happens around Mar/Apr and celebrates music, wellness and yoga.


You can expect temperatures to reach the 30’s and consistently dry conditions. For divers and mountain climbers, you’re in for treat as this is a good month to travel and because it’s not the peak season, good deals are around.


A great time to visit to take advantage of the warm temperatures, lower crowds and holiday deals on offer.


Water visibility and diving are excellent this month and the weather is sublime! To avoid higher prices and crowds, visit before the School Holidays begin.


The sunniest month of the year though to take advantage of this, you’ll need to pay higher prices due to resorts becoming busier.


A great time to visit to take advantage of the warm temperatures, lower crowds and holiday deals on offer.


Whilst officially the start of the wet season, diving is still popular due to clear waters but unlike the dry season, you may receive some short bursts of showers.


Probably a month to avoid if you can. Wetter conditions and not ideal for many of the many activities you may be wanting to get involved in such as hiking or trekking.


Well into the wet season now but you can still expect large periods of daily sunshine.
