Lencois Sand Dunes, Brazil

Lencois Sand Dunes, Brazil


The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park  is located in Maranhão state, in northeastern Brazil, just east of the Baía de São José, between 02.º19’—02.º45’ S and 42.º44’—43.º29’ W. It is an area of low, flat, occasionally flooded land, overlaid with large, discrete sand dunes. It encompasses roughly 1500 square kilometers, and despite abundant rain, supports almost no vegetation. The park was created on June 2, 1981. It was featured in the Brazilian film The House of Sand. Kadhal Anukkal, a song from an Indian film Endhiran starred by Rajnikanth was also shot here.
