Averages for Bali in August
Bali, an island in Indonesia, offers world class surfing and diving, fantastic sunbathing opportunities and plenty of sights to explore. It’s perfect for those that want a relaxing beach holiday, as well as for those who want a lively and active getaway.
August is usually the last of the ‘cool’ months, but with temperatures reaching up to 31 degrees celsius and dropping only slightly to 23 degrees, it’s hardly cold in Bali. These temperatures are usually more comfortable than the higher heats at the beginning and end of the year.
An average 40mm of rainfall means August is the driest month of the year in Bali. Days will generally be sunny and bright, with only a few clouds towards the end of the day, which is when the showers occur. There’s low humidity is August, and this is one of the best times to visit Bali.
While there’s little chance of rain during the day, take the opportunity to get in a round or two of golf. The Nirwana Bali Golf Club has been styled to fit in with its natural surroundings; the lush green landscape and the sea. This makes it one of the most photographed (and most challenging!) golf clubs in the world. A round here will set travellers back around £106, but it’ll be well worth it.
Relax in the warm summer evenings with a drink or two at the Cubana Bar & Grill. Aiming to bring a taste of Cuba to the island, there’s plenty of Cuban-inspired entertainment and cocktails at this 1950’s themed bar. There are a lot of events and offers on, including the daily ‘happy hour’ (between 4pm-7pm) as well as Mojito Mondays, Cuban Tuesdays, Ladies Night Wednesdays, Tropical Thursdays and Fiesta Fridays.
Those wanting to stay close to all the action of Ubud, but away from the main tourist sites should check out the £25 a night room at the Okawati Hotel. Accommodations are in the form of traditional Balinese style bungalows, each with spacious decks and pool or garden views.
