You’ll need to give him the stick you collected earlier and he’ll disturb the bees nest, after he’s gone off running for his life place a bomb against the crumbling wall ahead and go into the hidden room to speak with the Fairy which will restore your health if you’re running a little low.

Make your way to the southwest of the village to find a row of trees, follow it around until you notice one standing by itself, dart into it to find a Secret Seashell, now head to the line of trees to the south of the Seashell Mansion and remove the small plant at the end to uncover a staircase.

Journey to the Animal Village

Head down the stairs and make your way to the other side whilst dodging the sharks, after you’ve exited the out to the other side, make your way down until you reach a point to go right, now head down to the east side of the village where you’ll see a house next to boarded up well, enter it and trade your honeycomb for a Pineapple alongside gaining some information on how to get to Yarna Desert.

Before you use the teleporter below, exit the village and head down past the Telephone Booth, then go left around the trees to find an Owl Statue, dig around it to find a Secret Seashell. Now use the teleporter and go back to Mabe Village.

Once you’ve spawned, head down to the beach and continue following it along to the east and speak with Marin to trigger a cutscene. After the cutscene has ended, take Marin back to the Teleporter and travel to Animal Village, follow the path around to the Southeast and let Marin sing to the Walrus to free your path into Yarna Desert.

Exploring Yarna Desert

Once you’ve killed it fall into the sand pit and collect the Angler Key, now place a bomb onto the crumbling wall ahead and enter the room to find a Piece of Heart. Follow the underground area out to the right and speak with the Owl Statue.

Head down to the southeast and remove the rocks to find a Secret Seashell.

Locating Angler’s Tunnel

Head back up the ladder that you used to get here, then use the next ladder you see to find some stones blocking a cave, remove the stones and head through.

Make your way to the right and quickly break the crystal to get off the slowly crumbling floor, push the stone down and head to the right and use the stairs to the next room, now go back into the previous room and position the stones to allow you to get over to the Piece of Heart.
