The best time to travel to Bali is during the dry season, which runs from April to September. During this time, Bali experiences warm, sunny weather with lower humidity levels, making it an ideal time for outdoor activities and sightseeing. The average temperature during the dry season is around 27°C (81°F), with cooler temperatures in the evenings.
If you are looking to avoid crowds and get better deals, consider traveling during the shoulder season between October and March, which is the rainy season. Although it rains more frequently during this time, the rains are usually short-lived and followed by sunny skies. You can still enjoy many activities during this time, such as surfing and hiking.
Avoid traveling to Bali during the peak tourist season between July and August, as the island is crowded and prices are higher. Additionally, if you are planning to climb Mount Agung or Mount Batur, be aware that they can be closed during the rainy season due to safety concerns.
