If you’re game for heading out into the middle of nowhere, then Canto do Atins holidays should be on the agenda. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the edge of Brazil's Lencois Maranhnses park, this small settlement is only accessible with a 4x4 drive through the desert or trek westward across the rippled sands from the larger village-cum-kitesurfing hotspot, Atins. You won’t find electricity, or any sign of modernity, just two charming family-run restaurants serving juicy shrimp – grilled on the barbeque or cooked in creamy coconut sauce. The perfect stop-off for a rustic lunch followed by a snooze in a hammock.
