If you’re on a budget you might want to consider travelling in November. Bali is in the “off-season” this month and that means cheaper flights, hotels and resorts.
So, let’s take a close look at the pleasant weather you can expect when visiting Bali in November.
What Is The Weather Like In Bali In November?
An Overview Of The Bali Weather In November
We can’t give you an accurate weather forecast for what the weather will be like in your visit in November but we can give you some hard numbers for you to understand what you can expect in the “wet season” in Bali.
Minimum to Maximum Temperatures (Average Temperatures)
The average daily minimum temperature range in Bali is from 22-25 degrees Celsius (that’s from 72 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit) and that’s a higher average temperature than much of Europe sees in the peak of their summer!
The range of average daily maximum temperatures is 31 to 32 degrees Celsius (that’s about 88 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit) in November.
Bali is warm and pleasant all year round and the average temperature doesn’t vary much from month to month with just 2 degrees between the hottest month of the year (May) and the coldest (January).
Monthly Rainfall And Rainy Days
There are only 10-13 days of rain in Bali in November and that means that between 55 and 65% of the days are rain-free and you can enjoy Bali to your heart’s content without fear of getting wet.
Bali in November does see some fairly substantial rain when it comes though and the island will get 18.8 – 29cm of rain (7.4 – 11.4 inches) which is going to mean that if you get caught in showers, you’re going to want something waterproof to put on.
Hours Of Sunshine Per Day
There are 7-8 hours of sunshine every day in Bali in November, that’s more than enough to spend hours at the beach at Nusa Dua, Canggu, Kuta, Uluwatu, Sanur or Seminyak indulging in water sports, etc.
Ubud the cultural heart of the island is also a great place to see at this time of year as the short bursts of rain tend to make the lush vegetation in Ubdu really come alive.
Relative Humidity Levels
The weather in Bali does feel a bit hotter than it is at times due to the average humidity and it’s quite humid in Bali in November.
The average humidity is 80-85%, mind you this isn’t that much more humid than June, the driest month, where the humidity is about 79-80%.
Average Sea Temperature
The sea temperature at this time of year is around 28-30 degrees Celsius (that’s about 82 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit).
If you want the best trip time for swimming, then November is a great time to come with slightly warmer seas than average.
But then, again, the sea is always pleasant to swim in here in Bali at any time of the year.
What Are The Best Places To Visit In Bali In November?
There are plenty of awesome places to visit in Bali during November including:
Seminyak – this busy beach town is great at this time of year and it’s packed with people looking to see and be seen as they enjoy great deals at the luxury resorts in the area and find a table more easily at the local fine dining options before partying the night away.

What Are The Best Things To Do In Bali In November?
There are also some great things to do in Bali during November including:
Beach hopping – this season brings a quieter time to Bali’s beaches, so why not roam around the island and see if you can find a favourite spot? Even Kuta Beach is more chilled out at this time of year and it reminds you of why the area became so popular in the first place. Make sure to squeeze in some black sand beaches on your travels.
Shopping – the markets and walking streets of Bali are always happy to see you at any time of the year but in the quieter months of the off-season, you’re more likely to be able to haggle your way to a bargain. The market stalls expect you to haggle and it’s welcomed. While the boutiques don’t usually allow haggling, they often have sales in November where you can get bargain-priced designer gear.
Legian Beach Festival – the area of Legian is not far from Kuta, Seminyak or Canggu and this is a pleasant cultural festival that is held around the beach area. If you want to catch some awesome local dance, theatre and musical displays, you’re going to very much enjoy this festival. There are also displays of artwork including paintings and sculptures to take in.
What Should I Bring To Bali In November?
You don’t have to pack very much that you wouldn’t bring at any other time of the year but we strongly advise that you bring light, breathable clothing as this makes it easier for your sweat to evaporate and cool you down in the humidity.
A light jacket and a rain poncho make sense to keep you dry and you might also want to bring some closed shoes in addition to your thongs, if you intend to go hiking make sure you have shoes with a good grip as things can get slippery in the wet.

Is Bali Better In October Or November?
This all depends on you. October is the last month of the dry season and it has more crowds than November and you’re still paying peak rates for hotels, etc.
However, it has fewer crowds than the main school holiday months and if you want to come during the peak season one of our top travel tips would be to come in October if you can.
November, on the other hand, has slightly worse weather but it’s much cheaper than October and has even fewer crowds.
How Should I Book A November Holiday In Bali?
We always recommend that people book any trip to Bali, whether it’s in November or not, through the Bali Res Centre.
That’s a very helpful local travel agent who can provide competitive prices and lots of local knowledge to ensure you have the perfect trip to Bali.
