The village of Atins is the main entrance to the Lençóis Maranhenses, a unique destination in the world that every person should visit at least once in his life.
Arriving here will be an odyssey, by boat or 4×4, you will go through incredible landscapes that will present many of the natural treasures of the region.
It is the perfect place to disconnect from the modern world and its comfort, a village where you feel in the middle of nowhere and at the same time part of a whole.
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is a vast area of white sand dunes always in movement, filled up with countless freshwater and crystal clear lagoons. Those who wish to explore it in a day, by foot or horseback riding, will only think of going back.
A multi-day expedition is the best way to reach the deepest areas of the park and discover the oasis of Baixa Grande or Queimada dos Britos. The local people who live there will welcome and share everything they have with those who wish to visit them, an unforgettable experience.
Atins is a privileged spot for kitesurfing, because in addition to its strong winds, it is surrounded by flat waters.
Its beach is protected by a large sandy bank formed by the sediments of the river Preguiças, giving the impression of a large lagoon of salty calm water. The wind also enters a large part of the river, which makes two spots very different and very close.
The most desired experience is, without a doubt, kitesurfing in the Lençóis, where the best conditions and the most beautiful colours will appear during the last hours of the day.
