About This Boat

Amazing Sea Turtle encounter in Paramaribo, Suriname! Book this Exclusive trip for 4 person for 2 days. Starting at  €140 per person  and minimum booking of 4 person.

Matapica beach is a unique place in Suriname. This unspoiled, rugged beach is a wonderful place to relax. The special trip to get there certainly contributes to the rural effect of this place.

The trip leaves from Leonsberg where you will take a boattrip to Fort Nieuw Amsterdam. Your guide will take you to a tour throught the historic museum. From there it is another comfortable boattrip to the the former plantation 'Johan & Margaretha. After lunch you step in a smaller boat that takes you through wetlands to the beach. You sail over the flooded old plantation with a grand view and through the old irrigation channels. Various species of birds fly over.

Once arrived on the beach you can spend the day in long beach walks, sunbathing or with a book in a hammock between the trees. The vastness and desolation of this place and the freedom to choose your own pace ensure the ultimate relaxation.

In the evening, the local guide takes you for a boat trip through the wetlands for caiman spotting. From there you will take a walk to witness the egg laying of the turtles.

The next morning you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast and spend the morning again undisturbed and at your own pace. Before lunch time you go back to Johan & Margaretha. A fresh
hot lunch is waiting for you, after you will continue your journey back to Leonsberg by boat.

You spend the night at a base camp with roof. The toilet uses creekwater and although there is no running water there is a small bathroom where you can rinse of with fresh water. You stay under the roof of the camp in tents with matrasses. The tent acts as a mosquito net.
