Welcome to Malolo
Around 18km north of the lodge is the turn-off to Kubugam village, a lively market operates at the road junction. Kubugam is the launch pad for banana boats heading to Karkar Island. When the weather cooperates, numerous boats depart for Dumal (K20), Kaviek Station (K40), Kinim Station (K40) and Kulili Point (K50) on the island. Sausages and bananas sizzle on hot plates at the ad-hoc food stalls beside the beach.
The area around Ulingan Bay is particularly good for surfing, with a number of right- and left-hand breaks. It’s best suited to intermediate or advanced riders as most of the waves break over coral reefs (reef booties are recommended). PNG’s National Surf Titles have been held at the Tupira Surf Club.
