Fodor's Review

Jutting out into the river across from the main square, this fat finger of golden sand is one of Alter's picture-perfect postcard shots and a great place to spend a day basking in the sun, swimming, and paddleboarding. Rowboats transfer you across (R$10 return), as you will only be able to walk when the waters are at their lowest. Straw cabanas serving fresh grilled fish set out chairs and sun-loungers on the edge of the water. Paddleboards are available for rent for R$50 an hour. Amenities: food and drinks; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming.
