Around Belém

Share

There are interesting places near Belém, although you should mostly resist the temptation to swim at the river beaches anywhere close to the city. The locals, indifferent to high fecal counts, regularly do, but it plays havoc with the unaccustomed. We’ve listed a number of places you can visit below but the best bet for a day at the beach, if a day is all you have, is Mosqueiro. If you have longer, head for the altogether more enticing destinations of Algodoal and Marajó – further afield but worth the effort.
