Bali: When is the best time to visit?
Honeymoons. Honeymooning. Honeymooners.
Let’s talk about some of the most popular honeymoon spots and when is the best time to visit.
Bali offers the best of both worlds with its blend of luxurious beachfronts and lush jungle escapes, and has always been a magnet for wanderlust-filled Irish travellers. Whilst you may have already explored Bali whilst backpacking with friends, there is so much more to discover and experience with your other half as a romantic honeymoon destination.
Why do couples choose Bali?
Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali has a lot to offer for honeymooners.
Starting with great weather, welcoming hospitality and delicious food, Bali sets the stage for a magical honeymoon. Whether you’re looking to explore and dive head first into the local culture, or take a beat to relax at a stunning beachside resort, in addition, luxurious hotels, resorts and villas are relatively affordable in comparison to other popular honeymoon locations.
There is plenty to experience and keep you busy throughout your Balinese honeymoon. From hands-on cooking courses, Instagrammable rice paddies, visiting majestic temples and local markets, to indulging in traditional spa treatments, watching mesmerising dances and taking in the unbeatable sunsets, there is a lot to be discovered on the island. Also, those floating breakfasts – essential.
Discover the jungle in Ubud, recharge at a yoga retreat in Canngu, if you’re feeling brave climb the active Mount Batur volcano and go beyond the main island to visit the picture perfect islands of Gili Air, Gili Trawangan and Nusa Penida.
The perfect combination of adventure, culture and relaxation, Bali is a great choice for a honeymoon destination.
But, when is the best time to visit?
April to September/October
Bali’s tropical climate offers warm weather year-round, making it a great destination to visit at pretty much any time.
However, if you’re looking for (almost) guaranteed great weather – Bali’s dry season stretches from April to September. During this period, visitors can expect sunny skies, lower humidity levels and minimal rainfall.
The peak tourist season falls between June and September, so if you’re looking to avoid the crowds, consider visiting in the shoulder months of April, May or October. Keep in mind that rainy season starts from November through to March, and during this time downpours and higher humidity levels are to be expected, however the temperatures usually remain at a consistent 28-32 degrees throughout.
