No one wants to be shipwrecked, but there are worse places to be stranded than Koholint Island. Here are a few tips to help you uncover some of the island’s secrets in the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening game.


Gone fishin’

One of the first stops for tourists on Koholint Island is usually the local fishing hole. You can try your hand at landing the big one—or even a Fairy Bottle! Plus, fishing is an easy way to earn in-game currency called rupees.


Seeking Secret Seashells

Secret Seashells are hidden all over Koholint Island. After collecting a good number of shells, head over to the Seashell Mansion. You can exchange seashells to earn in-game rewards, like the Seashell Sensor to let you know when there’s a shell close by.


Speedy solutions

Once you have the Pegasus Boots, head over to the Mabe Village library to uncover a hidden secret. We can’t tell you exactly what to do, but here’s a hint: Pegasus Boots give you a burst of speed while charging at enemies and certain types of obstacles.


A call for help

If you get stuck on your adventure and you’re not sure what to do next, you can call Old Man Ulrira for a helpful hint. This shy old gentleman is happy to share advice with you on the phone. But if you visit him in person, he’ll clam up.


A walk down memory lane

There’s a lot going on in this game, so it can be hard to keep track of who said what when. The map of Koholint Island gives you the chance to review certain important conversations from throughout the game. You can also use to map to check out key locations.
