Bali Ocean

There is no bad weather in Bali, but there are some nuances according to the seasons and the choice of areas and places where you can swim at one time or another of the year. In the summer for Russia, you can swim everywhere on the coast of Bali, but in winter from December to March it is better to swim on the east and south coasts.


The fact is that in winter, from January to March, the wind direction changes, and the garbage that runs near Bali arrives on shore. You can find a lot of garbage in the ocean: bottles, plastic, bamboo sticks, broken coconuts, bags and other nasty things.


Therefore, if you decide to relax in winter, then it will be better to swim and enjoy the ocean on the east and south coasts of Bali, for example on Bukit, and not on the west coast in the areas of Kuta, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Changgu.

In winter - East and south coast of Bali (Bukit, Sanur)
In winter - the west coast of Bali (Kuta)
