LenÇóis Maranhenses may look like a vast desert, but in actuality, the area has incredibly heavy rainfall. The vast sand dunes, lying just outside the Amazon Basin, trap seasonal rain and create a truly peculiar phenomenon - glistening lakes within an otherwise barren landscape. These incredible lagoons can be blue, green or black depending on the rock beneath the sand.
