An Amazonian beach holiday

When you hear “Amazon”, you probably think of a deep jungle. Well, this remarkably well hidden beach paradise is right in the middle of it.  Alter do Chão lies on Rio Tapajós, a tributary to the mighty Amazon, which is so wide here that you can’t even see across to the far shore.  There’s plenty of nature to explore in the area on foot, but the inlet to the lake is also covered with cosy beach restaurants and bars, perfect for a post swim chill out.  

No fear of crocodiles here, but there are some sting rays to watch out for.  You’ll start your adventure on the two-day boat ride from Manaus (capital of the Amazon) to Santarém, but be sure to bring your own hammock (and some rope) or just some extra coins for the bar!

While you’re here, you’ll discover there’s much more to do than hanging out at the glorious beaches. The town lies at the entrance to the Lago Verde lagoon, home to many Amazon animals, and the perfect place to do a canoe trip. We also include tours to the beautiful Floresta Nacional do Tapajós and Rio Arapiuns.
