Info Bali

Indonesia has about 13,700 islands, of which a thousand are permanently inhabited. Bali is just a small spot on the map of Indonesia (Population of 3.2 Million). But one of the most famous and interesting. What makes Bali so special among the rest is the religion, the Hindu Dhama Aguma, Bali is the only Hindu island in Indonesia which has remained. Bali is considered by many as a true paradise. That is not as incomprehensible as you think. Look at the many beaches, the best surfing waves and the beautiful landscapes that you'll find on the island. Much of the island is dotted with volcanoes and temples that have a sacred meaning for the Balinese.


Bali has a tropical climate with an average temperature of 30 °C all year long. The only difference is found in the dry and rainy season, the dry season (April to September) is overall slightly sunnier and less humid (humidity is between 40 to 70%), while in the rainy season (October to March) there's more chance of rain and definitely more humid. There are even significant variations of temperature on the island, the coast is usually much warmer than inland, but the constant sea breeze that brings with it is tolerable. When you go inland you'll eventually go up and at that height it will be considerably cooler, even at times it can get too cold. It's best to take a jacket if your going into the mountains.

Animals & Vegetation

  • Animals - The island is geologically young and most of the animals have migrated to Bali. What you can find are lizards of many different sizes and shapes as well as Geckos, these animals you will hear rather than see first. There are regularly bats flying at night out and monkeys are often seen in the temples and also on the street. Dolphins can be seen in the sea surounding Bali and they have a variety of 300 different species of birds.
  • Vegetation - Bali consists mostly of a softwood rainforest, and so the trees are used for woodworking, furniture and sculptures (Sumatra - Kalimantan). There are even plants that have a significant economic impact, the bamboo grows in different variations and get used for almost everything from kitchen utensils, satay sticks and even as a string for some music instruments (Balinese music). In Bali you can get all kinds of flowers, some are only seasonal and some you can only get in the cooler regions. Flowers are seen everywhere, along the streets and in every garden.
