Best Dive Job in the World
WIN all the training needed to become a successful PADI instructor
Bali is the ideal tropical island paradise and has been voted as the “World’s Best Island” by the readers of Time and Travel & Leisure magazines. Bali’s seascape calls divers and surfers from all over the world. The diversity of Bali’s marine ecosystem is unparalleled anywhere in the world.
WHAT MAKES BALI SO SPECIAL?
There is the combination of the friendly people, the natural attractions, access to adventure sports, the year-round pleasant climate, and the absence of security problems. Then there is Bali’s special “magic”, which is difficult to explain.
As soon as you step off the plane you might sense the difference. In the villages you’ll notice the quietness and wisdom in old people’s faces, and the interest and respect in those of the young. Old men sit at the road side caressing their fighting cocks. Beautifully dressed women walk proudly through rice fields and forests carrying offerings on their heads to the next temple. There is the smell of flowers, and in the distance you hear the sound of gamelan music.
Gods and spirits have been an important part of Bali’s Hindu culture for hundreds of years. Gunung Agung – Bali’s holy volcano – watches over the island and is internationally regarded as one of the world’s eight “Chakra” points. This may be more than a coincidence. Watch out, the moment you feel the magic of this island, you’re addicted for the rest of your life.
You can expect sunny beach weather between 25 to 33 degrees Celsius year-round. From December to March, the West monsoon can bring heavy showers and high humidity, but usually the days are sunny and the rains start during the night and pass quickly. From June to September the humidity is low, and it is genearlly cool and comfortable in the evenings. During this time of the year, you’ll have hardly any rain in the coastal areas.
Even when it rains in most parts of Bali you can often enjoy sunny days on the “Bukit”, the hill south of Jimbaran Beach. On the other hand, in Ubud and the mountains you must expect cloudy skies and showers throughout the year (this is why the international weather reports for “Denpasar” or “Bali” mention showers and rain storms during all times of the year). In higher regions such as in Bedugul or Kintamani you may even need jacket after the sun sets over the pristine volcano lake.
