Bali Weather in February & March

In the weeks approaching our trip to Bali, I continuously checked the weather. I would frantically report that it was still raining every day and nervously considered if I needed a pair of pants.

We arrived in Ubud in mid-February and it was a beautiful, sunny day. I remember thinking to myself how lucky we must have been since every other day called for rain.

As the days went by we noticed that the rain came and went fairly quick. The clouds were constantly on the move and often storms would blow over in less than one hour.

Over the course of our month in Bali from mid-February to mid-March, we had many days in a row of full sun and only a few days in a row with no sun.

The weather has been consistently warm and usually hot and sticky, but in a good way. Considering back in Canada at this time of year we would be facing snow storms and ice warnings, we happily embraced the humidity and hot sun.

After it rains, Bali is a lot cooler so it can sometimes be a nice relief.

Typically when it rains, it pours. Since Bali is a tropical paradise, the rain is some of the heaviest rain I have ever seen. It comes on fast and can leave you drenched in seconds. At home, we would never leave the house if it rained this hard, but here life goes on. We have often been caught in torrential downpours while driving around on the scooter.

Every month is a good time to visit Bali and because of the many days of sunshine, February and March are no exceptions.

In Ubud, there are so many cafes; you will never be left out in the rain with nowhere to go. We have found ourselves trapped in cute juice bars too many times to count, using it as an excuse to eat raw desserts and watch the rain come down.

Unfortunately because of the rain, hiking up Bali’s volcanos and mountains is too dangerous this time of year. These activities usually start up again late April.

We used the rainy days in Bali to get a lot of work done. We would sit outside in our covered outdoor living room and watch the rain while blogging. I have to warn you though, if good internet is something you cannot live without then Bali during the rainy season will frustrate you.

A general rule of thumb is the further south you go towards and in Denpasar, the better the internet is.

A thick waterproof poncho is handy to have in the seat of your scooter. It will keep your whole body dry!
