Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard), Paramaribo

(2.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Stoll along under the shade of almond trees and see the 19th-century colonial style houses at Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard). Watch the commerce of ships in the harbor and cars moving along the distant bridge in one of the oldest parts of Paramaribo. Have a sip of Surinamese beer and grab some local dishes, such as bami (meat noodles) or kip sate (skewered meat), from the typical Indonesian warungs (small family restaurants), which remain open until late at night. The nearby attractions include the main square and presidential palace. Put Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard) and other Paramaribo attractions into our Paramaribo travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Unfortunately, there is not much left but what there is is beautiful. However, it is neglected and there are many wanderers. Sorry to here if not enough attention is a Unesco World Heritage site.
