When is the best time of year to visit Bawah Reserve?

We are often asked about the best time of year to schedule a trip to Bawah Reserve.
Which month has the best weather? And when is the rainy season?


Travelers who book holidays based on the weather are in luck. Unlike many parts of Asia, the
weather at the Reserve is remarkably consistent year-round. Temperatures are always warm and range from 26° to 30° C (78° to 86° F), with November through February being the coolest, breeziest months. Download our weather infographic here.


Humidity hovers around 80% most of the time, and there is a chance of rain 365 days a year.
Often these are passing showers followed by blue skies and sunshine. November and
December are slightly wetter than other months; even then there’s only around 30% chance
of rain, which is relatively low by tropical standards.  Want to check the weather history for your intended travel month? Simply click here  to do so.

Weather-wise, there is never a bad time to visit Bawah Reserve. It is blessed with beautiful
weather almost every day of the year. Beyond the climate, people prefer Bawah at different times of the year for personal reasons.  Here's our seasonal guide to help you plan the best timing for your trip:

 

Mid January - February

Some enjoy the period from mid-January to mid-February when the lagoon is still and clear
like glass. Sunsets are extraordinarily vibrant during this time of year. Due to the tides, a
huge sand bar forms off of the Boathouse beach, making a spectacular location for a private
dinner.

March 

Others love March as it’s the month of the easterly winds. The breeze calms the water, which
allows for excellent underwater visibility in the snorkeling and diving sites around the
Reserve, including the wall of Tokong Island. Our forest welcomes lots of flying visitors in
March as well; they gently chirp at the break of dawn to welcome morning hikers to our
trails. Nights are magical too; if you look above Sanggah Island, you can easily see the Milky
Way with the naked eye.

July - September

From mid-July through September, the islands of Bawah are a sanctuary for the Hawksbill
turtles who come ashore to lay eggs. The turtle eggs hatch on the beach, and the baby turtles
crawl to the ocean. It is a magical experience watching the little turtles make their way to the
sea and such a rare, instinctive sight to behold.

October

October is a popular month for family reunions and trips with friends. With the busy festive
season quickly approaching, guests take a few days to relax and holiday together. Our chef
enjoys creating group dinner themes based on what is picked fresh from our gardens.
Families spend the day doing various activities and come together to recap their adventures
over dinner.

December is the most joyful time at Bawah when we host our “12 Days of Bawah” annual
festivities. We pull out all the stops to treat those who choose to celebrate Christmas and New
Year with us with specialty cocktails and meals, interactive classes and spa activities.
Holidays on the beach are the best way to put a bow on the end of a year and prepare for a
healthy, happy new year ahead.
