Rubio Plantation Retreat is located 220 Km south east of Kavieng, and 45 km north west of Namatanai, down the scenic Buluminski Highway. It takes about 3 hours to drive there from Kavieng airport. Rubio Plantation is a 180 acre property which starts from the beach and goes up into the mountains. It has many trails to explore and a cool beautiful stream that comes out of the ground at the base of a giant tree and runs for several hundred metres and then disappears again into the ground. It then resurfaces and then runs into the ocean along a white sandy beach.
The bungalows are made from native materials and are located along the beachfront. All beds have mosquito nets. The experienced and friendly staff will take care of all your needs. Solar panels and hydro-electric provide power for the retreat. There are flush toilets and showers in our deluxe and family bungalows and also in a toilet block.
Rubio has a good, consistent break right at our beach. There are also many other good breaks in the area. Surf spots range from mellow long board waves to fast and hollow. We have both rights and lefts and are open to many swell directions. There are boats and vehicles available to take you out to the many excellent breaks on the offshore islands or along the coast. We never book more than 10 surfers at one time and with our many available breaks you will never be dealing with a crowd. We have discovered many previously unknown surf breaks in hidden locations. We will guide you to these amazing spots. We are continuing to discover and surf new spots each season.
