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. With its huge sheltered lagoons, flat waters and steady and reliable cross/onshore winds of 15-30 knots Atins is also one of the coming global top spots for all Kiteboarders.

The Lençóis Maranhenses transcends a special magic. Its archetypical phenomenon of blue, green and black lagoons set in the middle of an otherwise desert-like landscape of white sand dunes are best experienced from June to September.


Named as one of the Top 4 Kitesurfing flatwater spots in the world Atins guarantees constant cross on-shore winds of 15 to 30 knots from mid July to mid January. The flat and shallow water offers ideal conditions for all level of kiters. We are less than 100m from the beach and offer dedicated facilities for kite maintenance and storage.


A fully equipped wooden deck nestled into a grove of Cashew trees invites Yogis and Yoginis for retreats to this tranquil, high energy place.


Due to a long-lasting affection for the beautiful village of Atins, its nature and people, the Convento Arcádia first came alive in 2016 as a holiday home. With time, we decided to expand into a small boutique hotel, turning the large grounds into a beautiful garden in which we hope our guests will find a tranquil, relaxing and personal experience of a home away from home.

Cosy little pousada with spice garden! I've stayed with my friends in Convento Arcadia for 6 nights and we loved it. Rooms are very stylish, cleaned every day, you can hang in your hammock in front of the room and enjoy silence. :) It's totally relaxing! Carmen's very nice host, she's been very friendly, gave us tips, what to do when not kiting. :) Kite beach is just 100m away from the pousada, we found 2 corners just perfect for kite equipment. Breakfasts were really delicious, Carmen prepared us fresh basil and cashew nuts paste and allow us to take spices and vegetables from her garden. I can give you only warm recommendation, we will be back next year for sure!

A real home from home If you need tranquility, very friendly and helpful hosts (who also organize trips for you), overwhelming nature and a really simple life, this is the right place for you. Ideally located (only 3 minutes to beach, easy access to the national park), very clean and modern, and hosts, who have a great knowledge about the area, the most friendly dog in the world, a beautiful cat and sometimes a horse, too! Suitable for single travellers, loving couples and families!
