Pindobal is a settlement of stilted houses along the river Tapajós. A beach there is semi-deserted. You will probably see some local people, especially children playing in the river.
Pindobal is lying about 8 km from Alter do Chão and it's the most wide point of river Tapajós (nearly 14 km). It can be reached by car or by boat.
Getting to Ponta de Pedras was a combination of boating and walking. I made it with a local guide. Boat trip took about 40 minutes. Then it was an hour long walk to a final destination. A trail lead us through the rainforest and I was attracted by varied scenery.
Ponta de Pedras (meaning Point of Stones, named by some gigantic stones) is a small village of fishermen along the river that has a beautiful beach. We took a long bath and then continued discovering the area.
Before leaving the beach we stoped in the village for a drink. Cold coconut water was a perfect choice!!
