Ponta de Pedras Beach, Santarem

4.7
#1 of 21 in Things to do in Santarem
In unusual and striking shapes, the large rocks that give Ponta de Pedras Beach its name dot the soft, bright-white sand, and you can climb them for amazing panoramic views of Rio Tapajós and the rainforest. Place an order at one of the stalls, and while you wait, you can go for a swim in the warm, crystal-clear, and incredibly clean river. Back on the beach, delicious fried fish in hand, just sit back and relax in this little piece of paradise.

    Although I have been in the month of August, which they say will still lower the River, and the beach will be more extensive, showing even more huge stones in front of the beach, loved it! The water was a bit muddy, but I don't know if it's always like that. The beach has a good infrastructure, there is an Inn, and several restaurants. What I ate and loved everything there, was the Kiosk of Winnie. There's always walks that lead to this beach. How to get there by bus, but from what I understand there are few options, so it's better to go by car or boat. Recommend meet!

    I made the reservation on the Internet and I didn't realize it was out of the loop more agitated to Alter do Chão ... getting there, we had the pleasant surprise of being received with the kindness of the couple Ronaldo and Clear! The rooms are simple, but the location and the view make up for everything!

Where to stay in Santarem

The main cluster of accommodations lies just to the east of the Curuai-Santarem ferry dock. These basic, unpretentious hotels don't differ much from one another; views of the river are chief among the selling points. Move away from the water, and the lodgings get a little simpler, occupying formerly residential blocks, as opposed to the purpose-built blocks that line the riverside. The city's outskirts offer motels along the main roads, giving good access to the surrounding jungle areas.
