Bali can be enjoyed 365 days a year, whether you go in wet season or dry season.

Is it True?

Located barely 500 miles south of the Equator, Bali has a distinctly tropical climate. Regardless of the month you visit or where you stay during in Bali, you will find yourself sitting in weather between 80 and 85 degrees and humidity. While it might be a bit cooler, you will rarely need anything than a light jacket. It will also prevent you from windy days that might occured at anytime during the wet season.

Bali weather nowadays is still in wet season so there will be plenty of rains with extra wind especially in late noon and night times.

Typically, Bali rainy season is October – March with December- February being the rainiest months. The Island has microclimates so it might be often sunny in one town when pouring hard rain in the next town over.

Since weather reports are not especially helpful, all you have to do is just sit back, relax and enjoy the rain because tranquality is what you got when you’re in Bali in wet season.

You can forget about noisy restaurants and overcrowded beaches. The streets are also less congested. You will have plenty of room to stretch your legs and explore the Island. Or you can browse or ask your hotel manager for places which provide indoor entertainment as well as activities. There’s no reason for rain to deter you from seeing this incredible Island of stunning nature and vibrant culture.

Big storms are other problem in Bali wet season, it can wash debris from land to sea and waves tend also to peak up during storms so be sure to check the conditions thoroughly before heading out into the water for a swim, surf, snorkel or dive. If the sea is too rough, boates may refuse to shuttle back and forth. Underwater visibility can also be affected which can ruin a big scuba diving trip you’ve been dreaming for years.

If you’re not into exploring places undersoaking wet weather than you can simply curl up in your room reading your new book, or instead lay in your hammock to watch the rain. Go to nearest spa or salon just to get your body and hair pampered or try the favor delicacies from the hotel you’re staying.

One biggest thing to consider during wet season in Bali is that roads tend to worsen after a long stretch of rain. You will want to plan your routes carefully and be sure to pack a poncho and extra t-shirts if you’re motorbiking around the Island.

It will be wise to also bring your ‘just-in-case’ medications along with you because you’ll never know when you catch cold or flu caused by having too many rains.
