One morning in February, @bdentonphoto photographed a #rainbow over Alter do Chão, #Brazil. Even though this outpost is far removed from the sea in a remote corner of the Amazon jungle, it must rank among the world’s most alluring beach towns. White-sand beaches along the Tapajós River beckon visitors who drive from as far as Cuiabá, nearly 1,000 miles to the south. The clear, warm waters lure snorkelers and practitioners of standup paddle boarding. Just want to chill? Sit in a cafe, sip an ice-cold bottle of Tijuca beer and gaze at the sun setting over forest-shrouded ridges teeming with wildlife like sloths and howler monkeys. Brazil has more than 4,600 miles of coastline. So @nytimes reporter @simongromero wondered if one of the country's best beaches could really be situated deep in the untamed interior of the world’s largest rain forest. #AlterdoChão, he writes, “feels like a slow-paced oasis of tranquillity in a country on edge over a protracted economic crisis, colossal corruption scandals and rising political polarization.” Visit the link in our profile to see more of @bdentonphoto’s images from this #rainforest beach town in Brazil.
