Best times to visit Seminyak
As we mentioned above, depending on the time of year Seminyak can get pretty crowded due to the volume of visitors, cultural events, seasonal events, and especially the weather. Being a tropical island, Bali has primarily two weather systems - the dry and wet seasons. Both have advantages and disadvantages to travelers, which we’ll be outlining below.
Things to consider for weather in Bali
If you want to bask in the tropical sun and enjoy the crystal blue skies, then you want to aim for the dry season. In Bali, the dry weather typically falls between May and October. Expect sunny skies, low humidity, and very minimal rain during this time period - perfect for your tropical getaway to Seminyak. This is also the best season if you’re planning to go surfing on the western beaches of Bali, as the winds gradually switch directions towards the end of the dry season. Keep in mind that this is also the high season and busiest times in Bali, so anticipate more crowds. It’s also a good idea to book your accommodation in advance.
Those who prefer a quieter getaway experience in Bali should consider planning the trip to Bali during the low seasons. The low season, or wet season, falls between November and April. This is considered to be the quietest time in Bali. However, that doesn’t mean your getaway is any less fun than the high season. The advantages of visiting during the low season include fewer crowds, cooler weather, and more affordable rates on accommodation and transportation.
To conclude, the best visiting times to Bali will depend on your itinerary of activities, and the kind of experience you’d like. Regardless of the time of year, Bali has plenty to offer. We hope this article has been helpful in giving you insight into planning your trip to Bali.
