Alter do Chao

4.6
Officially an administrative district of Santarem, and unofficially the town's main selling point, Alter do Chao lies 33 km (21 mi) west of the town center. Most of the attractions in Alter do Chao hug the right bank of the Tapajos river, whose tides determine the size of this town's famous little island. Freshwater beaches offer ample room for relaxation and play, while the natural diversity of the marine environment, wealth of boat trips to wider Amazonian areas and remote communities, and beachside restaurants mean you can do much more than sunbathe. Make Alter do Chao central to your Brazil travel plans using our Brazil road trip planner.
