Bali is one of the most popular resort islands in Indonesia. Tourists are attracted to this exotic island by its warm climate, colorful beaches and picturesque nature, as well as culture and traditions. You can swim and sunbathe in the sun all year round, but Bali still has a dry season and a rainy one. It is during the dry season that there are most tourists (from May to October), since the probability of bad weather is very low. The rainy season lasts from November to April, but there are a lot of tourists during these months. And yet - when is the best time to go to Bali?

High, dry season features

Starting from May, hot, sunny and windless weather sets in on the island. Rains are very rare. Around July, there is practically no precipitation, the air temperature rises, which is why tourists visit the sights less often. From mid-May to the end of June is the best time to relax for those who want to save a little and visit many excursions.

The tourist season in Bali for surfers mainly starts from about mid-July to September, because it is during these months that you can catch a good wave due to the fact that dry monsoons blow.

Families with children prefer to come to Bali in September when the heat subsides.

Rainy season on the island

The period from November to April in Bali is considered the low season. Many people plan holidays in Bali during this period, since there are much fewer vacationers, prices are lower, and the weather still allows you to swim and sunbathe, although rainy and windy days are possible. A little more difficult with a beach holiday in the winter months, but the New Year holidays are still considered one of the most popular in Bali. When planning a holiday in Bali for these months, the price will be the same as in the high season.

Winter is a wonderful period for those who do not really like to bask on the beach all day under the scorching sun, but prefer to visit temples, castles, other attractions or just travel around the island, enjoying the picturesque nature. The low season is a great choice for those who love windsurfing or dream of learning to do so.

As you can see, when planning a vacation in Bali, it is worth considering many nuances: the preferred type of vacation, affordable budget, air and water temperature. It all depends on the chosen month of the trip. But in any case, a vacation on this exotic island will be unforgettable, regardless of the time of year.
