This picturesque town in Bali is simply so delightful all-year-round, that there isn’t really a best time to visit Uluwatu. Every season of the year is characterised by different weather traits that influence the array of activities here, making Uluwatu a perfect go-to destination for everyone! Most travellers believe that the town is only popular for the Uluwatu Temple, which can be visited throughout the year, but there’s a lot more to Uluwatu than meets the eye.

There are plenty of beaches, water activities that offer adrenaline-pumping experiences, high cliffs, the famous Kecak Fire Dance,  and a host of enjoyable nightlife experiences. You can choose to visit Uluwatu based on what you enjoy the most. Temperatures in Uluwatu are always between 23°C to 30°C, the only distinct change being the rainfall here. Visiting in the monsoons means less crowd, low hotel prices, fewer water sports, ideal for honeymooners, and abundant beauty and immense solitude to bask in.

Visiting during other seasons means crowds thronging the streets, markets bustling, plenty of water activities but steeper prices; a great option for friends and families. Nevertheless, irrespective of the season, Uluwatu’s beauty is breathtaking any time of the year, which makes it a definite addition to your travel bucket list!

Best Time to Visit Uluwatu for Sightseeing

best time to visit Uluwatu for sightseeing depends on what your preferred choices are. If you’re visiting for a mix of everything, we’d recommend the peak season between March to May. Prices might be steep, but there’s low humidity, water sports like snorkelling and scuba diving are a great experience, and the prominent Uluwatu Temple is at its brightest best with a myriad of colours.

Months from June to August are good too, with barely any rainfall and a good amount of activity, although not as much as the prime season. The monsoon season from September to February isn’t recommended as the rains can play spoilsport to your vacation plans. But if you’re looking for an indoor leisurely stay, the property rates are cheap, making it a good time for a short, comfy visit.

Best Time to Visit Uluwatu for Honeymoon

If you’re visiting Uluwatu for your honeymoon, we are guessing you’d want an undisturbed, peacefully romantic stay, which makes the off-season between September to February a good time to visit. The pristine beaches are void of any crowd, so you and your better half can spend hours on the beach gazing at the stars or admiring the infinite sea.

The parks are relatively empty, so you can stroll hand in hand watching the lush greenery. Additionally, the light rains add to the romantic vibe in the air and another bonus of an off-season visit is that you spend less on accommodation. However, if you and your partner are adventure enthusiasts, looking forward to seeking some thrill, we’d recommend you visit during the shoulder season of June to August.

The Busiest & Least Crowded Months to visit Uluwatu

Between March to May, Uluwatu is at its busiest since most travellers believe that it is the
best time to visit Uluwatu. Hotels and flights are expensive and the streets of Uluwatu are overcrowded, but on the brighter side, the bustle of markets makes the Uluwatu shopping experience fun.

The tourist spots, especially water activities are also fully functional in this dry season. The least active months are the monsoon between September to February when water sports shut down for the season, beaches are empty, and shopping streets are quiet. On the plus side, hotel prices are low in these months that attract travellers.

Best Season to visit Uluwatu

Peak Season (March to May)

Fall is the busiest time for Uluwatu owing to the beautiful weather, minimum rainfall and maximum things to do. Temperatures are between 24°C to 30°C and rainfall is barely for 9-10 days of the month, providing good relief from the heat.

Beaches are bustling with activity because taking a dip in the cool waters on a hot day is just what you need! However, being the peak season means that hotels and resort prices are steep and so are the flight prices.

It is advisable to book well in advance if you’re planning a trip in these months. Shopping and water sports might also get a tad bit expensive, but all tourist spots are accessible in these months as compared to other months, which makes it well worth the trip. 

Average Max temperature: 30.6°C

Average Precipitation: 105 mm

Temperature Range: 24.6°C - 30.8°C

Shoulder Season (June to August)

The months from June to August prove to be comfortable ones, with mid-range temperatures accompanied by very little rain. There’s barely one day of rainfall each month, which is why most tourists consider it the
best time to visit Uluwatu as opposed to the peak season.

Being flocked by tourists in this dry season also means that accommodation and activities might cost slightly more than usual, but not as much as the peak season. The highlight of the shoulder season is that you get to enjoy great weather at a relatively cheaper price, streets aren’t overcrowded, shopping is also reasonable and you have a good chance of getting major tourist spots to yourself to enjoy thoroughly! 

Average Max temperature: 29°C

Average Precipitation: 10.3 mm

Temperature Range: 23.8°C - 29.6°C

Off-season (September to February)

Although not the busiest, the off-season is a pretty good time to visit Uluwatu because the weather is pleasant, there’s a good chance of rain and there’s a gentle breeze blowing. Day temperatures are around 32°C and drop to around 23°C at night. You can look forward to both, rain and snow, which is rare but worth an experience, especially in a tropical city like Uluwatu.

Since it is the off-season, hotels are affordable and most of the sightseeing spots are calm. But this also means it’s a bad time for business and many hawkers might shut shop for these months on account of fewer customers.

Water sports, which are a highlight here, may also be shut down owing to torrential rains and high tides. If you’re looking for relaxation, this season might be the
best time to visit Uluwatu, but if you’re keen on shopping, exploring, and experiencing Uluwatu’s bustle at its best, the off-season might not be a great time to be here.

Average Max temperature: 30.7°C

Average Precipitation: 132 mm

Temperature Range: 23.3°C - 31.6°C
