If you're looking for the flavor text for this event, see The Beach (flavor text).
The Beach is an event that can be reached with the Going To The Beach Buff, from the Leave The City option in City Over The Narrow Sea, from The Pirate Ship, from the Arcane Portal found in The Haunted Mansion's Cellar, or randomly by using an Inflatable Crocodile at the Subterranean Stream Inside The Cave. It cannot simply be a random event.
In the event, you have various options. The normal options are explained under Standard Options, and changes from the normal options are explained under Summer.
Standard Options[edit | edit source]
- [Take a long walk at the beach.] and [Leave.] always appears as options.
- Palm Tree and The Fisherman both appear randomly and can appear at the same time.
- Before selecting an option, Fishing Pole and Pet Bear can be used to fish at this location (including during Summer); Pet Bear can catch Fish, while Fishing Pole can catch Crabs and Hammerhead Shark in addition to generic items.
- Also before selecting an option, A Bucket can be filled with water at this location (including during Summer).
- This is a special location for the Shovel. Items which can be dug up include: Torn Memento: Left Side, Sunscreen, Beach Ball with Broken enchantment, Boots, Broken Glass, Ordinary Ring, Ordinary Necklace, and 1 Rupee.
Palm Tree[edit | edit source]
- If you have Lucky and successfully get a Coconut, you have a chance to also gain an item out of Bee Hive, Chameleon, Cockatiel, and Crabs.
The Fisherman[edit | edit source]
The player can pay 15 Rupees to obtain a Fishing Pole and learn the Fisherman feat from The Fisherman. Alternatively, the player can ask for a free tip, prompting The Fisherman to give hints towards location(s) where a specific non-generic fish/other water creature can be caught.
[Take a long walk at the beach.][edit | edit source]

[Leave.][edit | edit source]
Nothing happens in the event.
Summer[edit | edit source]
- The Beach has 2 additional options compared with the standard options during Summer: The Mobile Beach Shop and Water Skiing.
- During Summer, The Beach has a 100% chance to have The Mobile Beach Shop, [Take a long walk at the beach.], and [Leave.] as options, a random chance for Water Skiing and Palm Tree, and a 0% chance for The Fisherman.
- Water Skiing and Palm Tree cannot both appear as options at the same time.
- Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff have a random chance of appearing at the same time as the Water Skiing option; the one that appears is based on the player's account's chosen sexual preference.
Water Skiing[edit | edit source]
- The player can pay 5 Rupees to "a blonde guy in a speedboat" to go water skiing, or they can leave and the event ends.
- If you pay the Rupees, you will go 4-6 spaces forward and be given an option to continue or stop; stopping at this point does not incur a penalty.
- If continuing, you will go 6-8 spaces forward and be given an option to continue or stop; stopping at this point will have the player become Incapacitated unless Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff is on the beach, in which case there is no penalty.
- If continuing, you will go 8-10 spaces forward, then on the next page you will be killed by a shark unless Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff is on the beach, in which case there is no penalty. Supposing the player is killed by the shark but is somehow alive, they will have an option to use a Fishing Pole (Pet Bear isn't an option) to catch the Loan Shark which killed them; this option is not given if the player is saved by Pamela Anderson/David Hasselhoff.
