Located 600 km west of Fortaleza, Atins serves as an end point for many legendary downwinders. Located in the Preguiças River Delta, the sinuous mouth of the river creates ever-changing sandbanks and deep lagoons. Along with their strong consistent winds, typical of these beaches, kiters find perfect conditions in this part of the world. But Atins has something else to offer!
Vila Guará is right at the entrance of the magical Lençóis
Maranhenses, a unique landscape that mixes white sand dunes with a rich supply of groundwater, in itself a truly extraordinary spectacle to be experienced, even more by the kite!
Between July and December, kiters will find the ideal conditions in Atins. During this period, the vast and sparsely populated beaches are attended by constant land winds of 15 to 30 knots.
Vila Guará is literally on the sand beach and in a true paradise for kitesurfers looking for good winds, great comfort and wild nature.
Vila Guará is located in front of a huge lagoon, that represents essentially the mouth of the river Preguiças. The changing sandbanks provide warm and diverse water conditions, as well as sublime and fun. Perfect conditions for all levels of riders, from beginners to freestylers. If you like waves, simply sail to the ocean and enjoy the chop and waves there. And if you like more adventure, why not continue to leeward along the endless beaches of Lençóis Maranhenses?
