A long stretch of white sand, Deserto de Viana features many sand dune formations created by the constant Atlantic winds. Interspersed with sparse vegetation, these sandy hillocks can rise up to 50 m (164 ft). Come with a quad bike or a pickup truck--ideal vehicles for this type of terrain--and bring your own water and snacks as the area offers limited amenities.
