Beach Nature / Park
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. Before you head to Santarem, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Santarem trip builder, to make sure you see all that Santarem has to offer, including Ponta de Pedras Beach.

  • It's the same way to go to Alter do Chão, but we turn right before into a dirt road. The point is that the entry of Ponta de Pedras is located just at the entry of the road, without any signs before.....  more »

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.
