OVERVIEW

The Indonesian island of Bali is also known as ‘the Island of the Gods’ and from the moment you arrive in this tropical paradise it won’t be hard to see why. With its spectacular landscapes, consisting of verdant forests, emerald rice terraces and lofty mountains – not to mention pristine beaches and picturesque stretches of coastline –  the natural beauty of Bali holidays is undeniable; but the sumptuous richness of its culture and the friendliness of its people are just as much of an attraction to visitors.

Whether you are visiting Bali solo, with your significant other or with your family, you are sure to have an unforgettable vacation on this heavenly island. There are a wide range of accommodation options available to you, ranging from cheap and cheerful hotels to luxury resorts, and the wining and dining options are just as diverse. Families tend to favour Sanur, with its lovely beaches and charming but affordable resorts, or perhaps the delightful Jimbaran; but for more upscale accommodation, ideal for couples on a romantic break, head to Nusa Dua or Seminyak with its luxurious accommodation and trendy restaurants, bars and clubs.

There is so much to see and do on Bali holidays, whether you are interested in local history and culture, beach activities or adventure holidays. Be sure to visit at least a couple of its stunning Hindu temples, such as Uluwatu and Tanah Lot; you may also want to take a riveting cultural tour of the island or watch a compelling performance of traditional Balinese dance, an experience not to be missed.

Kids are sure to enjoy a trip to the Bali Treetop Adventure Park, the Bali Bird Park or the Taro Elephant Park, and there are plenty of exciting activities to take advantage of, ranging from scuba diving and paragliding to jungle trekking, horse riding and hiking through the lush rice fields.

Climate

Bali is situated near the equator, which makes for a warm, tropical climate. It has both a dry season and a wet season, the dry season is between April and September and in these months the weather tends to fluctuate around 32 degrees. During the dry season there is still occasional rainfall and the weather is occasionally unpredictable.

The rainy season is typically between October and March, in these months Bali tends to be more quiet. Just like it can rain in the dry season, the weather sometimes surprises locals in the wet season, as it can be dry for long periods of time. Bali is cooler, the closer you get to the central mountain area and is typically more rainy here.
