Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard), Paramaribo

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.

  • You can eat and drink here for a small amount. There are also stalls with souvenirs. You can also look out over the river.

  • This is actually a hangout and restaurant for locals. I guess the food is also based on that. Open during afternoons and evenings. But travelers should be aware that safety can be sometimes an issue here during late hours. Stay alert for hustles and small crime.
  • Nice place to be
