Algodoal is a beautiful place to visit a worthy journey out of Belém the capital of Pará State North of Brazil.

It is a 3 hours driving trip into good conditions roads until Marudá, where you will park your car (you will have many options of places to do so and it is a additional cost about R$ 10,00 a day).

Take a boat to Algodoal to meet with nature and relax, if you are young and love party choose dates around new year eve, carnaval and holy Friday.

There will be many options of accommodation in the area, the best places are not all listed online as yet, but keep in mind that good service can be rare..be prepared for low standard and enjoy the besuty outside of your hotel room.

Go to Princesa Beach and try a round boat trip through the Furo Velho if you like to see nature and take good pictures.

Two nights would be enough for a visit considering accommodation standards.

I wich that local government invested more to make it better, like receptive trainning and clean the beaches or charge whoever makes it dirty.

Imagine entering a car-free island just 45 min ashore from mainland Brazil. Horsedrawn "taxis". By high tide a small boat rows you to the start of a3.5 km long, white beach. Several small cafes serves you whatever you need. A choice of nice lodges close to the ocean. This is just what you need at vacation.

What amazing place!
Once there we can feel the meaning of paradise.
So quiet, so beautiful, that seems we are lost in time.
No motor vehicles autorized, no tarmac, no pollution...what else do we need?
Go and enjoy the nature without people around.
No night life, luckly you may have a reggae night...all night!

Popular with some of the hippy crowd. Lovely beaches particularly if you go as far as you can and the beach becomes almost completely unspoilt.
