This level is a bit different then others you’ve played in as Key Coins are introduced. They are a collectible that you must obtain in order to unlock the Warp Box and reach the next area. From the start, head onto the dock in the background for Key Coin #1 but Biddybuds will fight you for it. Continue right into the small pit to find a Boomerang Flower which comes in handy. Break the Goomba sand statue here to find Green Star #1 then enter the T-Shaped Clear pipe, emerging at the top.

We’lll spend the level collecting key coins (left). Use a shell to destroy the Goomba statue behind the turtle pit for a Star.

Grab Key Coin #2 here then head out towards the water. The sand rises but the water stays at sea-level, obviously. With that knowledge, run under the sand towards the screen to find Key Coin #3 . Cross the water right and you can find a 1-Up Mushroom and Boomerang Flower by using the pipes. On the island between the pipes, climb atop the palm tree for Key Coin #4 then go right to the Chargin’ Chucks. Defeat them with a Boomerang toss and snag Key Coin #5 . Going out of order, continue right up the ledge into a hidden room with Green +Clocks and Green Star #3 .

On the right side of the beach there is an opening. Hop inside and kill the enemies for a star.

Head towards the Warp Box in the water now but continue left of it to find a pipe submerged in water. In the bonus room you’ll need to light the floor panels to spawn Green Star #2 .

You’ll find a pipe submerged in the ocean, inside light up all the panels for a star.

Take the Warp Box to the Checkpoint Flag and use the pipe here to catch a ride of Plessie. Stick to the right side and make a leap over the docks to the Stamp on your way to the Goal Pole.

Once you are riding Plessie, stick to the right side to find the stamp (left) on the way to the end.
