WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TRAVEL TO BALI?
Itching to escape the cold? Indonesia is right on the equator, so Bali benefits from gloriously warm temperatures year-round! Catch us working on our tans, sipping cocktails outside, and swimming in the ocean literally any month of the year.
Like most tropical islands, Bali experiences two distinct seasons, dry (April to September) and wet (October to March). But don't let the word 'wet' put you off! There are still hot temperatures at this time of year, but it is very humid and the days have a slightly higher chance of rain. The rain doesn't stick around long though, plus is relief from the heat! If you don't mind occasionally getting a bit wet, this season is perfect for discovering a more peaceful side of the island.
Needless to say, when Bali safely reopens for international travel we won't care what month it is... our bags are already packed. Check out some of our favourite year-round activities in Bali below!
WHY VISIT BALI?
Bali has long been THE place to be in South East Asia. Beyond the beaches, yoga retreats, and nightlife scene, this island is a paradise of its own, crammed full of natural beauty that draws backpackers and high-end tourists from all over the world.
SPOT WILD DOLPHINS
Hop on a traditional fishing boat in northern Bali for your chance to spot dolphins in their natural habitat! Our small group tours in Bali have this experience included in the itinerary, and we make sure our boats stay far away enough so the dolphins have space to frolic, stress-free.
EXPLORE TROPICAL ISLANDS BY BIKE
Located off the main island, the Gili Islands are a heavenly trio. The serenity of the tropical surroundings is amplified by the lack of motor vehicles, so the best way to explore the beaches is on two wheels! No cars, no motorbikes, no worries.
HIT THE BEACH, BABY!
Find your bliss on one of Bali's many beaches. Snorkel with turtles, sun-bake on the sand, sip a pina colada... there's a beach for every mood.
LEARN TO SURF
Want to learn how to shred like a pro? Bali is a surfer's wonderland, full of spots suitable for beginners wanting to live out their beach babe fantasies. With a bit of help from a local instructor, you'll be catching waves in no time. Day 3 of our Bali Intro small group tour includes a surf sesh in laid-back Canggu - check out the full itinerary here!
SEE INCREDIBLE RICE TERRACES & WATERFALLS
Along with bright oceans and sandy shores, Bali's inner regions are full of natural beauty waiting for you to explore. Misty mountaintop temples, iconic rice paddies, hidden canyons, and cascading waterfalls all make up the island's landscape. Whip out your phone and snap some bangers for the 'gram.
TREK AN ACTIVE VOLCANO
Sacrifice a snooze for an early start to climb through the clouds and witness sunrise atop the active volcano that is Mt Batur. Jelly legs are absolutely worth the sweeping views you'll get across Bali's lush landscapes. The last full day of our Bali Intro group tour includes a guided sunrise hike up Mt Batur, followed by a traditional Balinese massage in the afternoon to treat your deserving muscles.
