Many people fail to reckon that Bali is definitely worth the visit even when it’s not the peak of the season. The best thing to note is that the temperatures on the island are fairly consistent throughout the whole year, so you won’t have to worry about that. The only problem is that January is a rather rainy month, plus the monsoon season starts at the end of October and lasts until April, but the weather can be changeable and most people love the fact of enjoying this island during this flabbergasting weather. In this period, embrace the amazing opportunity to see Tanah Lot, a unique temple located northwest of Kuta. This magnificent sanctuary is situated on an enormous jagged rock that rises out of the ocean. And the tide is low during these months, so you would be able to reach and marvel at it with ease.
Seize the day, a month (or three), and make the most out of your Bali visit. The peak season tends to start at the end of April as most people love the dry air and endless walks on the beach. This is the time of the year for couples to spruce up their romance, swim in glorious turquoise waters, and simply unwind under the sun. You would have a great balance of sunshine and wind, hence this is the ideal time to visit the island if you want to relax. Those who want to make the most out of their visit to this gorgeous island should find quality accommodation and check in to a luxurious villa. Bali has numerous such places but none of them is as perfect as Bali Villa Escapes, so check it out.
During June and July, there isn't a single drop of rain. What's more, these are the months you can really expect the full-frontal summer weather and embrace the scorching 31 degrees. Be prepared to enjoy lush nature, warm Indian ocean, sunny skies, and ideal summer temperatures. If you were to visit Bali during this time, expect mostly sunny days, so take the chance to learn how windsurfing, snorkelling, or diving. August tends to be hotter than in previous months, and if you don't prefer lying on the beach all day, you could visit the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal. It's surrounded by luscious trees and planters giving you plenty of shade, plus you would be able to see these playful grey long-tailed macaques in their natural habitat.
