Weather Overview for Bintan
This beautiful Island is located
just 45 kilometres south east of
Bintan is the largest region in the Riau province with an area covering 1140sq km and its coastline stretching out over 105km. Bintan is very close to the equator and experiences a tropical climate throughout the year, with temperatures ranging from 21°C to 32°C and an average of 26°C. Humidity ranges from 61 to 96 percent.
The dry calm season from late March to early November is characterised by clear sunny days and calm pristine waters. While from late November to early March is generally the windier season with passing showers, with good sun throughout the day.
The period between October to March is categorised as the north monsoon season with more rainfall and stronger winds, but the weather is generally sunny all year around.
Bintan is also recognised for enjoying a seasonal maritime climate; where the summers are generally cooler than the winters. In this region the summers are not necessarily cool, but the winters can at some points however, feel warmer than the summer months, with a much smaller annual temperature range. This is because water has a much higher heat capacity than soil and rock. Seawater takes a long time to warm up in summer, but once heated it retains its energy long after the surrounding land has cooled down, helping to moderate the climate. The climate in Bintan is generally fairly humid, accompanied by considerable amounts of precipitation, since the main moisture source is not very far away.
