What's the Weather Like in Bali in February?
The weather in Bali in February is very similar to what it is in January. The average temperature remains the same this month, at 26°C (79°F), while the average low is 22°C (72°F), and the average high comes in at 30°C (86°F). Similarly to January, the weather this month does not vary much from beginning to end.
At the start of February, the average daily temperature is 27°C (81°F), with overcast skies and a decent chance of rain, when the sun isn't shining. The middle of the month is more of the same, with the average daily temperature slightly rising to 27.5°C (81.5°F), before rounding out the end of the month with a daily average of 28°C (82°C), and again a high chance of rain. The lowest ever recorded temperature for the month of February was 22°C (72°F), while the highest ever was 37°C (97°F).
Rain and Average Sunshine Hours
As February is part of Bali's "wet season," the average daily sunshine is just six hours per day this month. Although the sun is out for a short time each day this month, this doesn't mean that it's constantly raining, as even on days when rainfall does occur, storms can quickly clear and bring out the sun. Rainfall is common in February though, as there is an average of 90mm this month, occurring over more than half of the days, at 15 of the 28.
Average Sea Temperatures
Also similarly to January is the warm temperature of the sea this month. February is tied with January for the warmest average sea temperature in Bali at 29°C (84°F). This is very warm water that anyone would be comfortable swimming in, even for extended periods of time.
The humidity levels in February are quite high, with the average level for the month being 80%. Even without high temperatures this is an uncomfortable level, but when mixed with temperatures that routinely go above 30°C (86°F) in February, it becomes even worse.
Bali Hotels in February
The Chedi Club has 20 rooms for guests, with a variety of options to choose from. There are one-bedroom suites, one-bedroom pool villas, spa pool villas, and one room in the Hadiprana Villa. Each type of room comes with complimentary breakfast, mini-bar and cocktails from 6 PM to 7 PM, airport transfers in a private car, unlimited access to the gym, yoga studio, and tennis courts, as well as wireless Internet.
The Komaneka at Tanggayuda offers five different types of rooms to choose from, each in a villa style setup. The five villas are a standard suite, a courtyard pool, a valley pool, a premiere valley pool, and a two-bedroom pool villa, each with more amenities than the former. While what is provided in each villa varies, they all have their own private area outdoors, a plunge pool, an open-air pavilion, and air-conditioning.
For boutique accommodation, seek out the Stone House Hotel. Set amid peaceful rainforest surroundings, this hidden gem provides a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of Ubud and provides a choice of three suites for guests. Owned by an American furniture designer, everything within the hotel is locally-sourced and environmental sustainability is its defining theme.
Bali Beach for February
Balangan Beach is a great beach for surfers and those just looking to hang out on the shores. It is made up of white sand and stretches over a distance of about 200 meters. Because of the larger waves created by this beach, the area has become very popular with surfers. However, the waves are not overpowering and can be tamed by both beginning surfers and those just wanting to swim.
This is a good beach to visit if you want to avoid crowds, as tourists can rarely be found here. However that also means that facilities and services at this beach are somewhat limited. This beach is also a great place to watch the sunset and enjoy unobstructed views of the sea and its surroundings.
Nusa Dua Beach is another relatively quiet and less crowded beach. It also is made up of white sand, although the waves here are not nearly as big and largely unable to be surfed. The beach is regularly cleaned and thus its white sand is inviting to take a stroll on, build a sandcastle, or simply dig your toes in to escape the sun.
There are chair rentals as well as water sport companies available for things like jet skis and parasailing. If you get hungry, head to The Bay Bali, which is located just off of the beach. They serve a variety of food, from traditional Balinese cuisine, to international flavors as well, such as Chinese and Thai food. Nusa Dua Beach is about a 45 minute drive from Ubud.
Bars and Restaurants
If you want a meal that is made using only local – and fresh – ingredients, head to Cuca. They offer a tapas menu consisting of dishes like croquettes, ceviche and marinated pulled pork, which are meant to be shared. If you are unable to make a selection of tapas yourself, allow the chef to create a "tasting meal" of tapas for the whole table.
For versatile dishes and friendly service, try Principle. Situated near the beach in Denpasar, this eatery comes highly recommended and serves up a crowd-pleasing array of dishes from Southeast Asia and Europe, all of which are locally sourced. In addition to the food, they mix up tasty juices and cocktails throughout the day.
Those in search of some Mexican food should pay a visit to Sizzle Wraps. This straightforward bistro serves up all the staples of the Mexican smorgasbord, and for very reasonable prices. A big hit with holidaymakers and locals, it's busy throughout the day, and is a great place to spend the afternoon or finish the day over a burrito and a couple of beers.
Lesica Bali is the place to go if you're after sweet treats like no other. This renowned eatery serves up a tasty mains menu but the desserts really are the main draw here. Whatever you're in the mood for - from mousse cake, crepes, macarons, cupcakes and even sweet pizza - you'll find here. There's also a range of artisanal teas to wash it down with after you've truly indulged yourself.
Things to do in Bali in February
Make the most of the warm sea temperatures at this time of the year with Bali Jet Set, who provide every water sport under the sun. Whether you're looking to take a ride on a banana boat, explore the reefs or take up windsailing, you'll be covered by their extensive range of aquatic activities.
For something a bit more subdued, visit the Tanah Lot. A unique structure which stands out among the rocks of the coast, it was believed to have been built in the 16th century and has worked its way into Balinese folklore - rumour has it that the temple is guarded by a giant sea snake. It's a popular tourist attraction, so be prepared to deal with crowds.
If you're saddled with a rainy day, be sure to check out the Agung Rai Museum of Art (ARMA). The museum opened in 1996 with the purpose to "promote and preserve Balinese art and culture." There are 237 paintings on display here, including both traditional and contemporary styles, from a wide range of both foreign and domestic artists.
