Beach : After arriving on the shores of Spira, you’ll regain control after a brief scene. Immediately begin by heading to the southeast and into an alcove nearby. You’ll find the Moon Crest within. This is used to help get Yuna’s ultimate (Celestial) weapon a LOOOONG ways down the road, but might as well start now, eh? Return to the main beach and head west to find a chest with two Antidotes within, then go speak with the Aurochs and Wakka. Doing so will earn you 200 Gil, 3 Potions, 2 Potions, and a Hi-Potion in all. Also be sure to follow Wakka eastward towards the Crossroads.
Crossroads : Continue east after Wakka. Time for a swim!
Valley : In this aquatic area, simply head along the path before you. Be sure to dive underwater and look carefully for some chests: you’ll find a Phoenix Down, Hi-Potion, and two Antidotes inside them - 'cause, you know, people drop stuff like this regularly. They’re also missable, since you never return here so scour the area thoroughly before you leave.
Village Slope : Simply go left and along some more into the village.
Besaid Village : After the scene in the village, you’re welcome to stay around and plunder as you please. Due west of the place where you regain control is a Phoenix Down . Now, take a look at the minimap and you ought to see a very, very narrow westbound path. Use the minimap to navigate to it and follow it for 400 Gil, a Hi-Potion, and two Potions . Enter the large blue tent along the west side of the area; it’s the main HQ for the Crusaders in Besaid. Not that we care and really it’s just for the Save Sphere in there.
Feel free to speak with the people here about why the Crusaders exist, though, and to pick up the Al Bhed Primer Vol. II on the floor. That will just about do it for now. Have you noticed that big large gray temple at the north side of town yet? It’s no mere background decoration: walk into it. There will be a brief scene there, after which you need to speak with Wakka in his hut and take a nap. There will be a bit more cutscene-stuff; just walk left during the cutscene that results. When you awaken, head back into the temple. There, after some scenes, you’ll run off into the Cloister.
