Weather in Bali

Bali is an Indonesian island located 2km southeast of Java in the Indonesian archipelago. Its mix of lush tropical forest and impressive mountain landscape interspersed with sandy beaches and a hot climate, make it a popular holiday destination.

Located only 8º south of the equator, Bali doesn't experience much of an annual range in temperature. Bali also experiences the opposite day length of countries in the northern hemisphere.

Even though the days are longest in December and shortest in June and July, the amount of daily sunshine is still similar to countries in the northern hemisphere.

Bali has an average of 8.2 hours of sunshine a day. The highest total comes in June, July, and August with an average of 10 hours a day, while January and February experience the least amount of daily sun on average, with just six hours.

While seasonally the two periods (Wet and Dry season) differ greatly in characteristics, the actual temperature doesn't vary so much- sitting at an average high of 29ºC to 33ºC all year.

The average low temperature fluctuates even less, as it is just 22ºC or 23ºC every month of the year. With such a stable floor of how cold it gets in Bali, you know what you're getting year-round.

January is generally the coldest month of the year, with an average high of 29ºC and a low of 23ºC, while May is generally the hottest. The average high in May is 33ºC, with an average low of 23ºC.

Spring Weather in Bali

January to April see Bali at its most humid, averaging 80%, which can be quite uncomfortable. The temperatures continue to rise from January to April as well, which when combined with already high humidity levels, makes the temperature feel even warmer.

Even though the wet season doesn't usually sound like a good time to go swimming, January through April still offers great opportunities to get in the water.

January and February have the highest average sea temperature in Bali with an average of 29ºC, while it is just a degree cooler on average (28ºC) in both March and April. 

Don't let rainy season fool you into thinking that it's not a good time to go to the beach, as water at these temperatures is very warm. The rainy season lasts through until about April, which sees Bali experience its second hottest month. 

Humidity in April begins to die off to about 65 – 70% and the average temperature is at a maximum of 33 ºC. April and May can be an enjoyable time to visit as it is just prior to the peak season of June - August so the region isn't as busy and the weather is slightly more bearable.

Summer Weather in Bali

June to September is the dry season and temperatures remain at an average of 31- 33ºC, humidity sits at an average 60 – 65% and rainfall is at a minimum.

July and August are the driest months in Bali, with an average of just 40mm of rain, spread out over the course of four days in July, and three days in August.

Just like mainly coastal regions, however, the towns are washed with an evening refreshing sea breeze, which provides a welcome break from the heat. This time period is Bali's peak season so you can expect crowds of tourists and higher prices during this time, particularly during July and August.

Winter Weather in Bali

Students, travellers and young people flock to the island and make the most of the cheaper prices that the rainy season attracts. If you want to avoid a vibrant party atmosphere then avoid Bali, Kuta in particular, throughout January and February.

Bali is a very popular tourist destination for residents of Australia, in particular for those nearby Perth or Darwin as it is only a short, cheap, flight away.

Although the wet season is considered to be October through April, the rainiest part of the year by average rainfall is December through March. Each month averages 90mm of rain, with January leading in the amount of total days of rain with 16.

Throughout the rainy season, the heat remains solid. With the rain comes cooling relief but increased humidity. It's not called the wet season for nothing, with the region seeing almost daily tropical downpours.
