Indonesia consists of a multitude of islands that form a paradise destination in the middle of the Indian Ocean. With a climate sometimes tropical, sometimes equatorial, nature is green and its fauna and flora are rich and varied. Here is everything you need to know about the Indonesian climate before you plan your trip.

A DIVERSITY OF CLIMATES DEPENDING ON THE ISLANDS

"Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world and has 18,306 islands to date. The climate in Indonesia is mainly tropical with some differences for some islands which have a more equatorial climate.

The year is divided between the wet season (rainy season) and another dry season. Indonesia is a region that remains humid all year round.

On the island of Bali, the dry season starts in May and ends in November. This period gives to see green landscapes and nature in all its splendour. It is not uncommon to see a few showers during the dry season. The rainy season extends from January to April.

The island of Lombok is more affected during this wet season (November to May). On the island of Java, it rains almost every day during this season. However, the weather in Indonesia remains mild all year round with mild temperatures and sunshine throughout the archipelago."

July and August in Bali are highly crowded with travellers. The weather in Indonesia is optimal. To take advantage of a favorable climate out of tourist season, the periods of April to June and October to November are ideal. Rainfall is then scarcer and temperatures are around 30°C.

Overall, the period from May to June is the best time to organize your trip to Indonesia. It is the ideal season for diving or snorkeling (especially July and August).
The dry season allows you to plan your visits and excursions (islands, temples, hikes, rice fields, festivals, volcanoes, etc.), without worrying about possible rainfall. All you have to do is enjoy Indonesia's landscapes and all its cultural and natural riches.
