Nusa Dua, with its beaches and mangroves, is popular all year round. Leisure facilities are the same as anywhere else: beach activities, golf, cafes and restaurants, shopping, nearby village Tanjung Benoa with a good selection of services and entertainment at more affordable prices.

Canyon Island

Especially popular with climbers from around the world is the extinct volcano Agung. Its height is 3142 meters above sea level, so it is the highest point of the island of Bali. The ancient inhabitants of the island believed that on top of the volcano live mythical gods and watch over the lives of people, doing their business in passing.

Beach Holiday

In the middle of winter, do not expect a calm and quiet ocean and paradise sandy beaches. Almost every other day there are storms, big waves bring a lot of garbage to the beach. Even the daily cleanup does not help. There is a lot of algae, plastic and other debris in the water, which the rains brought from the jungle to the ocean. But the ocean water is very warm at +28 degrees. So if you do not bother by big waves and great pollution, it is quite possible to swim. As a beach holiday should not choose Kuta and Uluwatu, it is better to give preference to the east coast of Bali. Going to the beach, you must remember about the protection from the sun. Even through the clouds, the sun warms well and you can get burned. So it is better to wear a sun hat and use sunscreen. And not only on the beach, but walking around town, it is worth protecting your skin.

Bali Winter Tourist Reviews

In December, January and February there are quite a lot of visitors to Bali, the island is very popular with Australians and Americans, a special boom is observed for Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Because of the increased demand, prices for services and accommodations go up, and traffic congestion is annoying. If the weather turns bad, tour organizers are also not at a loss and inflate prices for their services. The calculation is clear, because nobody wants to stay in a hotel all day. Therefore, tourists recommend to choose a hotel where you can have fun during bad weather: with a pool, fitness center and other amenities.

As noted by tourists in their reviews, the second feature of winter holidays – it is very unique beaches, because of the strong waves are far from where you can comfortably swim even in high season, let alone during the active monsoon. After each downpour a lot of debris is left on the coast, it simply do not have time to clean up, because the rains in December and February in Bali – a frequent phenomenon.

There’s a very special atmosphere on the island: time passes slowly and thoughtlessly, which is an invaluable asset for big-city dwellers, tired of the stressful pace of their lives. And if you are lucky with the weather, you can warm your bones on a warm sandy beach, take rejuvenating and health treatments, and, of course, escape from the gray and cold of everyday life.
