When to visit (Quick Summary)

Best Time

June - September

Monsoon Season

December - March

Beach Season

May - September


All Year

January - April

Indonesia is firmly in its wet season at the start of the year. There will be quite heavy rainfall yet temperatures will be warm (around 30°Cs) across the country, so the rain is often welcome to take the edge off the heat.

May - September

Long days of brilliant sunshine and no rain make this an excellent time to visit all of Indonesia. The beaches are sun-drenched, the mountains are crisp and dry and skies will be clear across the country; the perfect summer holiday destination.

October - December

October will see the slow return of the wet season, although there are still some pockets of excellent weather. The monsoon starts fully in December, so there is still dry sunshine to be enjoyed at the start of the winter months.
