New Amsterdam (Nieuw Amsterdam) is the regional capital of East Berbice-Corentyne, Guyana and one of the country's largest towns.

It is 62 mi from the capital, Georgetown and located on the eastern bank of the Berbice River, 4 mi upriver from its mouth at the Atlantic Ocean, and immediately south of the Canje River.

In December 2008, travel to New Amsterdam was made easier by the opening of the Berbice Bridge providing a direct connection to Georgetown.
