The Best Places to Visit in Bali in October

October is the last fine month of the year for visiting Bali's islands and beaches and for adventurous outdoor activities. Here are some of the most suitable places for you to explore and experience during your visit to Bali in October.

1. Thomas Beach for Sunbathing and Walks

Occupying a wide sandy cove, west of Padang Padang, Thomas Beach is the place to go to spread out those beach towels or wander leisurely along the 700-meter tropical shore in the last month of dry before the rains set in. Sun loungers can be rented, and being on the west of the peninsula, it's a great spot for sunsets.

Of course, there are many other awesome beaches on Bali: Padang Padang next door is great for surfing and featured in "Eat, Pray, Love", Jimbaran has seafood and quietness, while Seminyak has most dining and nightlife. Visit the beaches that suit you in October's nice beach weather!

2. Nusa Penida for Diving

October is the last chance to go diving before wet season conditions prevail. Nusa Penida is the best place for manta rays and other sea life, and October is the last month of its Ocean Sunfish (Mola) period. Nusa Penida is a Bali must-dive stretch of sea, but it has more challenging currents.

For easier dive sites, Tulamben has Liberty Wreck and Menjangan has an awesome coral wall… Whatever your level, diving should be done in October.

3. Nusa Lembongan for Simpler Watersports

Nusa Lembongan is a 40-minute boat trip from Bali, which is very doable in October before the rains come and make the sea choppier. The small island is known for a quieter beach relaxation, but also more purist watersports, which is something you should enjoy while the weather is fine in October. The aqua blue water is great for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. Surfing is popular too, but it's not the best place to begin surfing.

4. Mount Batur for Volcano Hiking

As the chance of rain increases through October, the easier and more popular volcano hike at Mount Batur (1,717 m) is recommended. You may hike up it in 2 hours and should enjoy an awesome sunrise, as most of October's low rainfall comes in afternoon/evening showers.

As it's about 10°C (18°F) cooler on the top of Batur compared to sea level, bring some warmer clothing with you, especially for pre-dawn treks.

5. Tegallalang for Rice Terrace Hiking

The Tegallalang Rice Terraces are only half an hour from Ubud. They are especially popular in October as crops ripen and sunshine is plentiful. Tegallalang's ripe loops of hillside paddies and palm trees create a photogenic landscape to explore and photo in October.

Tegallalang is more recommended in October than Jatiluwih, which is an hour further from Ubud, as there is a greater chance of rain affecting a trip, particularly towards the end of the month. On the other hand, Jatiluwih is the more scenic of Bali's rice terraces and it is less crowded due to accessibility.

Less Crowding and Cost

The pleasant dry-season weather is ending in Bali in October, and Bali is in its shoulder season, so hotel and flight prices decrease somewhat from the July/August peak period, and there's less crowding especially in areas popular.

What to Wear in October

Pack light, cool, quick-drying clothing. An umbrella will be enough to provide shelter from showers and sun. Sandals and cool, breathable footwear are generally recommended.

UV levels will be high, so pack plenty of sun cream, a sunhat, and good sunglasses. Insect/mosquito repellent may be required, especially in evenings and rural areas.

For Bali's Hindu temples and religious sites, bring some light longer clothing to cover arms and legs, which will also help to protect you from the sun and mosquitoes.

For hiking on the Tegallalang terraces or Mount Batur, strong comfortable trainers or light hiking boots should be packed to support your feet/ankles.
