Brazil Travel: Lencois Maranhenses

The Lencois Maranhenses National Park was founded in 1981 and lies at the coast of the state Maranhao, in the northeast of Brazil.  
The National Park, spans over 155.000 hectares and contains approximately seventy beaches. It is considered as one of the most impressive regions in the country. The “Bedsheet from Maranhao” is located between the village Primeira Cruz and Barreirinhas, at the shore of the river Preguicas. This English translation refers to the snow-white dunes, which characterises the main image of the National Park.
Inbetween the sand desert you can find a multitude of lagoons with crystal clear waters. As a result of this paradisiacal view, Lencois Maranhenses is an ideal destination for your journey to Brazil. Due to steady winds, which can shift dunes in their entirety, the general view of the landscape is constantly changing. 
The Lencois counts as one of the purest and untouched regions of the Brazilian coast. The inviting freshwater lagoons make for a perfect way to cool off after a day exploring the impressive range of sand dunes. The climate in Lencois Maranhensesis always reaches a daily maximum temperature of around 30 to 32 degrees. This may sound very hot, but the steady wind in this area creates a balance against the heat.  Between December to May you will find that it rains very often. In these months the valleys of the dunes fill up with water and form natural pools.
