Is April a good time to visit Bali? In fact, April is the beginning of the dry season in Bali. So you can expect sunnier skies and  considerably less rainfall than you would expect in January, February, or March. However, since the rainy season is just ending, the waterfalls will still be full and the jungles and terraced rice fields will still be  green and luxuriant.  While April is generally a slow season for tourism in Bali, since Easter sometimes falls in April, bargains on accommodation during that period will be hard to find.
