June - October - normally yes but this June we have had quite a lot of unseasonal rain and the Jakarta Globe says it is set to continue until August. Then hopefully a few dry months until the rainy season starts. We are probably having rain 4/5 times a week at the moment. Usually no more than 30 minutes or so (down in Kuta) but it has made it cloudy for more of the day too.

We've just come back from Gili Air. There was sunshine every day. It rained on one afternoon, and rained one night as well, but that was no big deal as it was sunny most of the time. Same thing happend on Gili Trawangan - one night we had plenty of rain, the rest of the time it was sunshine. I think these little islands tend to have a lot more sunshine than the 'mainland'.
