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.
