Rubio Plantation Retreat is located 220 Km from Kavieng, down the scenic Buliminsky Highway. The beachfront bungalows are made from native materials. Solar panels and hydroelectric provide power for the retreat. They grow organic fruits and vegetables on the plantation and in the surrounding villages. The surf season is from mid-October to mid-May. Rubio has a good, consistent break right at the beach.There are also many other good breaks in the area, ranging from mellow long board waves to fast and hollow. Boats and vehicles are available to take you out to the many excellent breaks on the offshore islands or along the coast. Max 10 surfers ate the resort !
The fees that are generated through the plan are distributed to the communities. The majority of the fees are used for school supplies. A small portion of the fees are also used to help develop surfing as a sport at the village level. This sustainable style of managing the surf resource benefits all involved. Rubio Plantation produces Organic Chocolate and Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. They use micro hydro and solar to power our production.
