The name of this park makes reference to the immense dunes that look like a bed sheet (lenšˇis) spread across the land. Near SŃo Luis, this park is divided into Grandes Lenšˇis and Pequenos Lenšˇis, separated by Rio Preguišas. The zone contains beaches, mangrove swamps, lagoons and dunes, and it was declared a National Park in 1981. This experience takes us across the shifting dunes of fine white sand and crystal clear blue lagoons that seem to glow under the sunshine or the moonlight; a true spectacle for our eyes.
--This trip can be made throughout the year. Between January and April the weather is unstable, from May to September is the period when lagoons are fuller, and from October to December is the dry season when it's windier and there is less tourism.
--The period of June and July are the celebrations of Sao Joao in the region, there is less accommodation availability, but there are many folk festivals on the weekends.
