Alter do Chão - Santarém - Pará
It may seem counterintuitive to seek out a beach 700km up the Amazon, but Alter do Chão is worth the cruise. An hour’s taxi from the riverside city of Santarém and enclosed by rainforest, it’s a sandbank ringed by a blindingly white beach, where alfresco restaurants serve grilled tambaqui fish and ice-cold beers.
The best time to come is during the dry season (June to December) when the river recedes and the island gets bigger.• The 24 rooms at the Beloalter Hotel (beloalter.com.br, doubles from £56 B&B) are basic but the wooded setting and wildlife are big pluses.
