    After reading so much on SEA (this is my first trip to this part of the world), I finally decide to skip Thailand islands and go to Bali instead, 2nd or 3rd week of Oct. Now I'm reading Bali's beaches are not so pretty and clean, and weather in October is not always good. The more I read the more confused I get.
    Can you help me decide!?

    Is there swimming in October in Bali?
    Which part of the island has the best beaches for swimming? I don't like pools.

    I'll only have about 5 days there, I'm not a beach person, but would like to end my trip with at least two days on a nice beach somewhere.

    Thanks in advance! Your site is amazing resource for SEA! I'm so glad I found it.

    You will be fine weather-wise in Bali in October. There might be an afternoon rain that last for an hour or so, and that would be it. I was in the area for 8 weeks in Oct/Nov and the real rains didn't start until Nov - and even then it was just the usual afternoon showers. I wouldn't put off your travels on that basis. But.. weather is unpredictable of course, and anything can happen.

    Go out to one of the islands like Nusa Lembongan or the Gilis and you'll find great beaches and fun fellow travellers.
