Bali Weather & Climate

Located 8° below the equator, Bali's weather and climate is characterised as tropical monsoon. November to March is considered the wet season with higher temperatures and high humidity, particularly in coast areas. The dry season, which falls between June and October is considered the best time to visit Bali as temperatures are warm yet mild and the skies are clear and sunny.

However if you're a keen surfer, your window of opportunity for travelling to Bali is far broader. The west coast is ideal for surfing from July to September at the height of the dry season while the winds turn in November to March's wetter months providing great off-shore breaks on the west side of the island.

July gets quite windy and although the local kite fliers love it, many beach goers find the wind too harsh however these conditions mainly affect Bali's south coast.

The table below gives a good indication of Bali's average conditions throughout the year making it easier for you to plan your holiday and dates of travel.
