Itaúnas is a small beach district in the region of Espírito Santo, Brazil, famous for its sand dunes. From the Tupi language, Itaúnas means black stone, because of the river that surrounded the main village. A beautiful and touristic place, the whole region is part of the Itaúnas State Park, and was declared a World Heritage Site in the early 90’s.
