Whether you want to cycle, sail or walk, at Plantage Resort Frederiksdorp it’s all possible. The resort is located in one of the oldest cultural areas of Suriname with a particularly rich flora and fauna.
The nature reserve around the plantation counts more than 80 bird species and extends from the banks of the Commewijne River to the Atlantic Ocean. You can pick one of our guides or explore the area independently. And whoever wants to stay can enjoy at the swimming pool.
At the end of the afternoon when the sun begins to set, we will go on the bike to Plantation Rust en Werk. The journey takes you through old locks, through the neighboring village of Johan and Margaretha and via a narrow cycle path along the water to Plantation
Rust en werk. The influences of the Javanese culture are clearly visible here. Children play barefoot on the street; the fishermen bring their shore ash while the women prepare for dinner. In this part of Commewijne one lives mainly in cattle farming and fishing. It seems a cozy existence where the so-called Javanese harmony (‘Rukun’) creates an atmosphere of togetherness. Totally recommended!

From February to August, the Atlantic seashores of Suriname are the domain of the giant turtle. From Plantation Frederiksdorp we sail to the beach of Braamspunt or we sail through a canal of 20 km,through the swamp area to Matapica beach. Upon arriving we are looking for the sea turtles. We keep enough distance so the turtles won’t be disturbed while laying their eggs, but close enough to see the wonderful process. An impressive experience.
