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.

  • One of the most popular sights of the city of Santarém, and lives up to this great search for the tourists. It's a wonderful place, and one of the best in the region. Lovely beach, and great to go alone, with friends or even for a romantic walk in pairs. A very pleasant climate, Sun sea, perfect combination &; very beautiful. You can't even feel like going out. And the sunset? SPECTACULAR!!!! I will be back, for sure, more often.

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.
