I first dived Puri Jati in 2005 and back then it was a case of getting changed out of the back of a car and trying to minimize the amount of beach carried home with with you at the end of a days diving.
Inevitably that meant all your camera & dive gear quickly took on a lamington like look with a thick coating of dark sand…
When I next dived it in 2008 I was very pleasantly surprised to find a nice shaded & concreted area with gear benches, camera & dive gear rinse tanks, showers and a toilet block under construction.
Nearby there is a small warung and the first job to do on arrival is to place your lunch order!

Diving Indonesia: Bali – Getting to Puri Jati
Getting to Puri Jati is bit complicated for divers because the most direct route is over the mountains from the south, which would be OK provided you have allowed at least 24 hours since your last dive.
In all probability if you intend to dive Puri Jati it will be part of a dive safari and you will either be traveling there from Tulamben after diving the Liberty wreck or you are coming from the west after diving Secret Bay or Menjangan Island.
It is about 2 hours drive from Tulamben to Puri Jati and about 1.5 hours from Secret Bay or Menjangan Island.
Diving Indonesia: Bali – Where to stay when diving Puri Jati?
One obvious place to stay would be at the Zen Resort but I personally stayed in Lovina at the Aneka, which was about a 20 minute drive to Puri Jati.
