Bali is a great place to visit year-round, with temperatures averaging 85° throughout the year. It is a popular family destination for travelers during school breaks, so June to August and December will be busier than the rest of the year — this is likely to mean higher prices.
We figured out the best times to visit tropical Bali based on a combination of all the important vacation factors.
You’ll find that the temperature in Bali is comfortably warm year round, but some months are much rainier — this is called low season — and crowded than others. The most ideal weather for a sunny vacation are between the months of April to June and September to October.
April to October is the dry season in Bali, but June to August (along with Christmas and New Year’s) is the peak season, so these times will be the busiest. For a good balance of sunny and dry weather, affordable prices and manageable crowds, April to June and September to October are the best times to visit.
April to August is likely to be dry and sunny, making it perfect beach weather.
