An $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{218}$$At was studied at the CERN-ISOLDE facility using a laser-ionization technique. Coincidence $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$ data were collected for the first time and a more precise half-life value of T$$_{1/2}$$ = 1.27(6) s was measured. A new $$alpha$$-decay scheme was deduced based on the fine-structure of the $$alpha$$ decay. The results lead to a preferred spin and parity assignment of J$$_{pi}$$ = (3$$^{-}$$) for the ground state of $$^{218}$$At; however, J$$_{pi}$$ = (2)$$^{-}$$ cannot be fully excluded.
