We’d also like to share one last bit of advice for your Bali elopement: Bali is a tropical Island and you’ll need to be aware that there is a monsoon season. Monsoon season starts from October to March, so it’s best to avoid these dates if you can! But other than that, you’ll find that Bali has so many gems to complete your elopement and honeymoon destination.
