We figured out the best time to visit tropical Bali based on a combination of all important holiday factors.
April-June and September-October
April to October is the dry season in Bali, but June to August (along with Christmas and New Year) is the peak season, so these times will be the busiest. For a good balance of sunny, dry weather, affordable prices and not too many crowds, April to June and September to October are the best times to visit.
Bali is a tropical destination and a great place to visit year-round, with temperatures averaging 30°C throughout the year.
Bali is a popular family destination for travellers during all school holidays, so June to August and December will be busier than the rest of the year. This is likely to mean higher prices.
Best time to visit Bali, weather-wise: April to August is likely to be dry and sunny, making it perfect beach weather.
Cheapest time to visit Bali: If you avoid common school holidays, you can often get great deals to Bali throughout the year. The cheapest deals we’ve seen (where flights can fall as low as $100 each way) are often for January to April.
Cheapest time to visit over Christmas break: Bali is a hot destination over Christmas and naturally prices skyrocket over the Christmas week with 3-5 star hotels averaging $164.44 per night for a stay from 22 December – 5 January according to HotelsCombined based on rooms booked in 2018-2019. You can cheapen your break by travelling from 16 February – 2 March instead where you’ll pay $120 on average for a 3-5 star hotel instead. Budget yourself to a 3-star hotel and the average drops to $63 per night.
