Weather Averages for Bali in December
Averages for Bali in December
With award winning luxury hotels (at budget prices), fascinating volcanic mountains, water sports, beaches, coral reefs and traditional music and dance shows, with great weather too, it’s no wonder Bali is one of the most popular islands in Indonesia with travellers looking for an unforgettable holiday.
December sees similar temperatures to the previous month; that’s 26 to 32 degrees celsius on average. It’s a far cry from the sub zero conditions back in the UK, with not a snowflake in sight.
December sees a massive spike in rainfall, with 295mm expected on average. The monsoon season has arrived, and many of the December days will be cloudy, overcast and wet most of the day. With 85% humidity, December is one of the most humid months of the year in Bali.
Looking for unique gifts to take back home as Christmas presents for friends and family? L’Atelier Parfums et Créations offers fragrance-making courses using scents native to Bali. Choose from a 90 minute basic workshop, or a 3 hour class that looks at the history of perfume making and the background of the fragrances. There’s also a one hour children’s class.
For New Year celebrations, there’s no livelier place on the island than Kuta Beach. Thousands of locals and tourists gather here to party and enjoy the midnight fireworks. Expect the beach to be crowded and noisy, but the atmosphere is fun and the big countdown is not to be missed. The streets around the beach are closed to traffic from around 4pm new years eve, so keep this in mind when choosing accommodation.
A good choice is the Al-Isha hotel in Kuta. Describing itself as a ‘home for spiritual travellers’, the vegetarian restaurant and onsite yoga classes are probably just the thing for recovering from the New Year hangover. Rooms usually cost from £23 per night, although this is likely to rise over the festive period.
