Palm Beach (or World 1-1) is the first level of Yoshi's Island in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. It is a beach-themed level full of palm trees and Huckit Crabs and the players' introduction to Yoshi.

Palm Beach is unlocked automatically after creating a new save file. Completing it will unlock Yoshi Woods and Yoshi House. Alternatively, Palm Beach can be accessed through a shortcut by completing Bombassault Gorge in Bombard Cliffs, though it would have already been completed.

According to the first part of his developer commentary, this level was designed by Skawo.


At the start of the level will be three groups of Question Blocks and Brick Blocks, along with a lone Goomba walking toward the player. The rightmost Question Block contains a Super Mushroom or Fire Flower. After a few barren jumps, the player will reach a Warp Pipe with a red Koopa Troopa to the right of it. Inside this Warp Pipe is a small underground room with a P Switch and multiple Brick Blocks. Passed this is a set of three wooden platforms with a few Brick Blocks and Question Blocks underneath. Two Goombas and a green Koopa Troopa are underneath as well. On top of the middle platform is the first Star Coin.

After this will be two red Koopa Troopas guarding a set of Brick Blocks with one Question Block. In this Question Block is a Yoshi. There are a few apples scattered throughout the area for this occasion. To the right of this are a few wooden platforms and palm trees, which will lead the player to a downward-facing Warp Pipe. In this Warp Pipe is a special sky-themed area where the player must jump between platforms to get a Star Coin at the end. After continuing to go right, the player will find their first Huckit Crab, along with a green Koopa Troopa and some Goombas. This is then met with the checkpoint flag.

To the right of the checkpoint flag are two Question Blocks with some Brick Blocks beside the bottom one. Inside it is a Super Mushroom or Fire Flower. Past this is a green Koopa Troopa along with some Goombas. Over them are several wooden platforms with coins on top of them, as well as a coin-filled Brick Block. After a few jumps, the player will find a few wooden platforms with multiple Koopa Troopas underneath. On top of these platforms is a Red Ring which will lead the player to a little section filled with Brick Blocks where they must avoid a Huckit Crab. There are two Warp Pipes around this section, the rightmost one holding a Star Coin within an underground bonus room leading to the leftmost.

After this is a red Koopa Troopa along with a few Goombas. Over them are a few wooden platforms that hold a P Switch. This P Switch reveals several Blue Coins. After this are a few wooden platforms with coins, Brick Blocks, and red Koopa Troopas resting on top over a sandy hill. On the right side of this hill are a few Goombas which the player can slide to defeat. This immediately brings the player to a Warp Pipe. In this Warp Pipe is a small forest-themed section segueing to Yoshi Woods with a staircase leading to the ending Goal Pole.

Star Coins

  • Star Coin 1: After the first Warp Pipe, the player will find three wooden platforms. The Star Coin is on the middle platform.
  • Star Coin 2: After receiving Yoshi, the player will need to jump across some palm trees and wooden platforms to reach a Warp Pipe in the sky. It'll take the player to an area where they must use Yoshi's flutter-jump to reach the second Star Coin.
  • Star Coin 3: After the only Red Ring, there will be an area with two Warp Pipes. The player must go in the right one, where they will reach an underground area where they can collect the third Star Coin.
