Who would´ve thought there would be a white sand beach in the middle of the Amazon? Well there is and it looks like this…
Alter Do Chao is a small quiet riverside village with a sand island (Ilha Do Amor or Love Island) that juts out into the river. It is full of rustic restaurants serving food and drink where we enjoyed a grilled fish lunch with some caiprinhas after some stressful sunbathing! (See more Brazilian food here.)
The island was full of Brazilians letting their hair down in the typical Brazilian way…in the water and with alcohol. They sunbathe, eat, drink and even play guitar in the water.
All in all a good day.
