Sulawesi climate

Sulawesi's expansive shapes, the long coastlines and the mountains in the interior of the island, which reach up to over 3,000 metres, result in very different amounts of rainfall.


In contrast, the temperatures here near the equator are fairly constant all year round, fluctuating between 28 and 32 °C during the day in the lowlands and on the coasts and dropping to a maximum of 20 °C at night.


In the mountainous regions in the interior of the island of Sulawesi, temperatures decrease depending on the altitude, with temperatures dropping by around 5 degrees at an altitude of around 700 metres.


In the north and in the popular diving areas at the north-eastern tip of the island, the rainy season is between October and April, with the wettest months being between December and March.
