Alter do Chao Beach, Alter do Chao

#1 of 96 in Outdoors in State of Para
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.

  • Located about 30 km from Santarém, Alter do Chão is a paradise. Rio Beach, with clear waters and warm and a beautiful landscape. I think the best time to visit is in the dry period, Amazon during the summer (August to December), when the beaches are more extensive.

  • The location is excellent and very quiet and beautiful. However during periods of high season the site loses a little of your tranquility, since there are people visiting the beach and cause environmental and noise pollution.

Where to stay in Alter do Chao

Modest in size and proud of it, Alter do Chao has a small selection of accommodations, but there's enough choice to suit the tastes of a varied set of travelers. Hostels provide a pleasant budget option, with rustic rooms and atmospheric grounds. Simple hotels give a few more services for an increased price, though the rooms lack the individuality and character of their humbler counterparts. Bed and breakfasts represent a solid middle ground in terms of character, cost, and amenities.
