What Do You Need
- Beach Chair
- Lights (Palm-Tree lamp/ Floor light)
- Coconut Tree
- Island Designer

Think About The Amount Of Decorations To bBe Used
The number of items for decoration is dependent on what kind of Beach Resort you want to build. The bigger the Beach Resort the more items needed for decorations.
Prepare the Place to Use
When picking a location it is recommended to pick the coast facing the front screen since it will be easier to take pictures in that location.
Searching For A Reference Is Recommended
It is easier to build a Beach Area while looking at different pictures of beaches as a reference. Try looking for pictures of Hawaii, Guam and Bali.
Lay Out The Decorations and You Are Done!
In creating a beach resort, you just need to place the beach related items in your chosen spot. Try to make it seem like there are people using the items placed.
Custom Design is Not Needed
Unlike other Island Designs, creating a beach area does not require you to use Custom Designs. You can make use of your island shore as it is and place different items for decoration. This Island Design is great for beginners.
How To Make The Beach-side Food Stall
To Produce a More Beach-like Feel
When there is a beach area, a Food Stall is definitely needed. Liven up the beach area by creating rest spaces and shops.
Reserve A Space
When reserving a space for the Food Stall, it is recommended to not choose an area within the beach area. Choosing a place in the area would make it crowded so instead, try choosing a place in the field near your beach area.
Cover The Reserved Area With Fence
After reserving a place, surround it with some sort of a boundary using fence. Shrubs, Coconut Trees and Simple Panel can also be used for this.
Recommended Trees and Shrubs
For Finishing Touches, Add Decorations
Finally, freely add decorations. Using custom designs on stalls can give the place a more Beach-like feel.
