Although the hottest part of the year in Bali has passed, June is still a warm month. The average temperature in June is 27°C (80°F), while the average low is 22°C (72°F), and the average high comes in at 31°C (88°F). The month begins with clear, sunny skies, a low chance of rain, and a daily average temperature of about 30°C (86°F). Temperatures start to cool off slightly in the middle of the month, to a daily average temperature of 28°C (82°F), with plenty of sun and an even smaller chance of rain. There is an even less chance of rain towards the end of June, with cloudy days being a rarity, and a slightly cooler daily average temperature of 27°C (80°F). The lowest ever recorded temperature in Bali in June is 21°C (70°F), while the hottest ever recorded temperature is 40°C (104°F).
The month of June is part of Bali's "dry season" and thus there are plenty of days without clouds in the sky, and an increase in the amount of sun per day. In June, there is an average of 10 hours of daily sunshine. Going hand-in-hand with this is the drop-off in the amount of rainfall seen this month. On average, there is just 50mm of rain in June, occurring over five days. These are some of the lowest rain totals of the year in Bali, so if you want to avoid getting rained on, considering visiting during this month.
Even though temperatures drop slightly from May to June, the temperature of the sea does not get any colder. The average sea temperature this month is 28°C (82°F), which is very warm water and comfortable for just about everyone. There is no threat of getting cold in water this warm, even after staying in it for a long period of time.
Humidity levels stay much the same in June as they were in May, with the average being 75%. This is a bit uncomfortable, but is somewhat combated by slightly cooler temperatures. However, as 75% is the average, there are days with levels above this, and thus creating an uncomfortable environment, and days with levels below it, making the humidity almost unnoticeable.
Things to do
The best area to surf during Bali's "dry season" is the western coast, as winds blow from east to west this time of year and create swells that are perfect for surfing. Bali Surfing Lesson provides a place to learn how to surf, and as they are located on Bali's west coast, this is a great place to check out this time of year. They have professional instructors who are highly trained and qualified and they are so confident in them, that they guarantee you will stand on your board during your first lesson. If you don't, they offer free lessons again the next day. Lessons begin in one of their pools, where instructors go over techniques and you get to know your equipment for about 10 to 15 minutes. After this, you head to the beach for a two and a half hour lesson, which are available in group, semi-private, and private settings and are available for people of all ages and skillsets. You can suggest surfing in the water by Uluwatu, as some of the best waves during the dry season are located here. Bali Surfing Lesson is located about a 46 minute drive from Ubud.

In order to experience some of Bali's local culture, be sure to visit the Tirta Gangga. It is a "royal water garden" which was built in 1948, and has seen several renovations and maintenance efforts since. The water in the garden comes from natural springs and is considered to be holy and is used for religious ceremonies. It is funneled into two swimming pools, smaller ponds, and the surrounding rice paddies. Visitors are welcome to swim in the water, which since it is natural is fairly cold and a good way to cool down on a hot day, for a small fee. In addition to the natural water swimming pools, there are an abundance of plants, as well as fountains, sculptures and shrines, spread out over an area of about three acres. There are also change rooms and toilets on-site, should you decide to swim in the pool. The water garden is located about 90 minutes from Ubud.

Hit the beach

The sand is not dirty and there is no trash, as the beach is cleaned daily and well maintained. Geger Beach also has some water activities for rent, such as snorkeling. There are chairs, sunbeds, and umbrellas for rental, as well as toilets and showers.
