Denpasar is located near the equator so temperatures are more or less the same throughout the year. The only variation on this depends on the altitude - it can be noticeably cooler up in the mountains than down at the sea level. There are two seasons: the dry season and the wet season. The dry season is called “summer” by the locals although, because Bali lies in the southern hemisphere, the dry season falls between April and October. This is the peak season and considered the best time to visit Denpasar, Bali. The wet season occurs between October and March. It can rain every day and some of the rainfall can be torrential.
