About The Place

Lençóis Maranhenses National Park - the only desert on the planet with lagoons between white sand dunes. Located on the North Atlantic Coast of Brazil, the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is one of the most beautiful and unique attractions in the world. This surreal park stretches over an area of about 155 thousand hectares which borders the coastline. The park is a surreal combination of dunes, lagoons and mangroves that are formed due to a strong wind throughout the year. The lagoons are created as a result of the rainy season from January to July. Unlike other deserts in the world, this park lets you walk on the dunes without burning your feet.

Before You Go, Tips & Guide

There are several ways to reach the park. One of the routes is via the city of Barreirinhas. You can buy a guided tour from the city that will take you to the park in a 4x4 jeep. Another recommended way to see the park is to take a panoramic flight. Flying over the park will offer you a breathtaking view that cannot be experienced in other tours. However, flying tours are a bit pricey and not affordable for budget travelers. Third way is walking to the park from the beautiful town of Atins. It’s a small fishing town with no paved streets and other amenities. We recommend you take a tour guide with you if you wish to reach the park on foot.
