One of the best Kiteboarding spots in the world

Welcome to Atins!
Nestled in between the dunes of the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, the delta of the Rio Preguiças, a little contributory creek (Igarapé), and the Atlantic Ocean’s coastline, Atins is a place of pure tranquility and simple life bliss. Given its secluded setting people also like to refer to it as ‘the island’, and it certainly feels like one.
In Atins you won’t find streets or any conventional pavement; here life sets place in a large sand pit. Mobile phone connectivity is patchy and Internet access is limited, electricity arrived only a few years ago and credit cards only start be seen in some places. Removed from the hurried world of civilisation, Atins offers endless dunes, sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, warm shallow waters, swaying palm trees and a constant, soothing sea breeze.
A destination for the adventurous traveller, Atins is the ideal base camp from where to explore the famous Lençóis Maranhenses due to its immediate access to both the park and the sea. It’s also the perfect Kiteboard spot offering huge sheltered lagoons with flat waters and steady and reliable cross/onshore winds of 15-30 knots.
