Surf, Sand, and Silver Stars


Mario and Yoshi searching for Silver Stars. What a perfect day to go to the beach!

Mario will land on the Starting Planet. He should then take the Launch Star to the Starshine Beach Planet. Here, Mario must collect five Silver Stars with the help of Yoshi. The first star is located in a structure near the beginning of the planet that can only be broken by a Spiny that was spat out by Yoshi. The second star is located on an odd platform that has a trampoline on the top and can be rolled around in water. Mario must position the Silver Star beneath the Star, then jump to grab the Star. The third Star is located on the top of the Pianta statue. Yoshi must use the Flower Grapples to get to the top, then Flutter Jump to reach the Star. The fourth star is located at the surface of the water next to the half hidden tower. It is easier to get this Star as Dash Yoshi. The fifth and final star is located at the top of the large tower surrounded by Cheep Cheeps. Blimp Yoshi is needed for this. After all five Silver Stars are collected, they will transform into the Power Star for Mario to collect.
