Alter do chao during May


My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Santarem during the month of May,

We want to experience the river-beaches of Alter do chao, however we have become aware of the river levels during the year.

We wish to relax at Alter do chao, not doing any adventurous activities,

our question is, will it be worth going to Alter do chao at this time of the year? will there be the beaches for us to relax on?

Thank you!

1. Re: Alter do chao during May

may/june are the peak water level months.

dont think you will find any beaches.

look at these pics comparing may and november:


i went there in november and could enjoy the miles and miles of sandy beaches, you shoud leave alter do chão for that time of the year.
