How to go to Ginger Island
To go to the Ginger island, you will be able to go after we have finished repairing Willy’s ship. It costs 1,000g per trip, more expensive than going to the desert! The process of unlocking the ship takes place after friends complete the Community Center or complete Joja’s bundle. There will be an invitation from Willy to go to the back of his shop two days later.
At the back of the shop, there will be a boat. He can take us to Ginger Island, but the ship is too worn out. You must repair it first by using the following items;
- Hardwood x200
- Iridium Bar x5
- Battery Pack x5
Once the items are delivered, there will be a ship repair cutscene that night (unless there are other cutscenes inserted, we will have to wait for the next day) and after that we will be able to board the ship by purchasing a ticket, just like going to the desert. But it’s better that you don’t have to wait for Willy to be at the store. Just go to the back of the shop.
Take a tour of Ginger Island in Stardew Valley!
The Ginger Island has many distinctive features. The area of the island is divided into zones. As wide as little Pelican Town, it can even be said there is a whole farm area to use. Areas for Farming, Fishing, Foraging, Dungeons, and most importantly, the seasons. because the island has no season, you can plant anything without winter season (Even the weather is separate from the Town.) The fish that can be caught will only depend on the time of day and location. It can be called moving from a villager to an islander! It’s just that you can’t do the best because you can’t build any Barns or Coops.
The area on the island is divided into 4 parts together and has various secrets. Lots of searches, mainly to find the Golden Walnut, the unique currency on the island. Because on the island, there will be parrots at various points requesting this Golden Walnut is a fixed number. When given, it will repair (yes, parrots on this island are awesome) that location or unlock something new for you to play with. Of course, including the ultimate End Game Content like Mr. Qi’s Walnut Room as well, until unlocking, you have to find almost every Golden Walnut!
► Ginger Island : South of the island (below)
The south of the island will be where friends starting when arriving to this island, there will be a port, a beach, the Teleport Waypoint for using Warp Totem: Island or the Island Obelisk and the ruined buildings. At first, there will be a giant turtle blocking the way.
- The northern turtle disappears when you follow Leo (island boy) who escapes you to the right hand side of the island. Talking to him in the hut will unlock the northern region. When we return to the beach, Magma Sprite will lead us north to the volcano dungeon.
- Western turtle It disappears when you pay 10 Golden Walnuts to it, but the parrot only appears if you give the Golden Walnut to the parrot in Leo’s hut.
○ Beach Resort
Ruins can be restored to a Resort once the Farmhouse on the island has been repaired. After that, a parrot will appear waiting to be repaired for 20 Golden Walnuts. Once repaired, the resort will open again. And there will be random townspeople from Pelican town to visit here periodically from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, making NPC’s travel schedule able to mess up again (LoL). We can press to open / close the Resort by pressing On the button between the two houses of the dressing room too.

○ Pirate’s Cave
You can enter the Pirate’s Cave by going through a secret passage to the right of this zone of the beach. you can come anytime but if you come by on a day when it’s not raining, on even-numbered days of the season, you’ll meet pirates as well. They will be able to talk to play darts for Golden Walnuts (only 3). If you wear Pirate Hats (or Deluxe Pirate Hats) and the Eye Patch will also receive a free Mead at the bar too.
In the water, there’s a Stingray to catch, which is likely to be the hardest fish to catch in this patch, including in the far right corner where there’s a crate. You can also mine to obtain the Gourmand Statue too.
On a rainy day, you’ll find a mermaid at the bottom of the Pirate’s Cave, along with a strange pile of stones that just appeared It will be a puzzle for you to solve.

As for how to place it, you must place above or below those small stones, press to adjust the sound correctly. (plays the mermaid’s song) then walks from left to right. If correct, you will receive a reward.
