Bali Climate

April 20th, 2012 | Posted in Articles

Bali has a tropical climate appropriate to its proximity to the equator. Year round temperatures average around 31 degrees Celsius. There are two distinct seasons, characterized as Rainy and Dry.

The Rainy Season

High humidity can be expected during the rainy season between the months of October and April when there is often daily rain. The most rainy times are between December and February and the days are hot and steamy – truly tropical. Some people just love Bali in the wet season as there are fewer tourists and the monsoonal weather adds to the sense of exotic escape.

The Dry Season

The dry season falls between the months of May and September. The air feels cooler in the dry season, because it’s less humid – so many people consider this the best time to visit Bali. Occasionally rainfall can also be expected during the dry season but usually at night or very early morning. In the months of June to August there is usually a very refreshing cool breeze all day long. The central mountain area is typically cooler than the lower coastal areas, especially at night.
