Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Alter do Chao Beach is a river beach lining the border of a small town with local craft shops and quiet cafes. The water of the river is warm, but still refreshing enough to wash away the heat of the city. Order some fresh fish and a drink before taking a dip and you’ll find it waiting for you when you return to the beach. This a charming alternative to a saltwater beach for its clear, gentle waters, and the lack of crowds.
