Coral Island – Bachelorette Romance Guide (Updated)

The brightly lit and vibrant farming and life sim Coral Island is finally out on today on Early Access! If you’ve played Stardew ValleyStory of Seasons or Harvest Moon you’re going to feel completely familiar with the mechanics of the game. To grow crops, raise livestock, make friends and revitalize a town. This time though we’re on a gorgeous tropical island and you’ll not just take care of the town but the coral reefs as well.

Being on a tropical island gives the whole game a different feel than that of Stardew Valley. There are tons of different types of crops and animals as well as people that call the island home. Right now living on Coral Island are 70 islanders that call this place home and are relying on you to help save the environment.

And of those 70 islanders are 25 gorgeous eligible bachelorettes and bachelors for you to befriend, fall in love with and maybe even start a family with! In this guide, we’ll go through all the eligible bachelorettes on Coral Island. Where they live, their favourite items and things that they hate.

Disclaimer: Coral Island was released on the 11th of October 2022 in Early Access. As such information in this guide is subject to changes and additions. We’ll be adding more to this guide as the game updates!


List of Bachelorettes

These are the bachelorettes for you to woo in Coral Island. Your choice of gender at the beginning of the game does not affect who you can or can not form a close relationship with. All twelve options are available at all times, it just depends on who you spend time with the most. They are:

• Aaliyah Alice
Chaem Eva
 Leah Lily
 Macy Millie
Nina Suki
Yuri Zarah


Just like most life sim games, you’ll be able to romance your characters after first being good friends with them. Do this by simply greeting them every day and bringing them their favourite items. Once you’ve reached a high enough friendship level you’ll be able to unlock an NPC story, giving you the option to marry them. You’re able to marry each of the possible 22 candidates at one time but not at the same time! But you’ll only be able to have up to two children.

Right now it looks like this feature is inaccessible in Early Access.


Gift Giving

There are a couple of shared things that the townspeople of Coral Island universally dislike and hate. Most of it being building materials, for some reason Canola Oil and Wheat Flour? Also Bombs everyone hates bombs. Here’s what you probably just shouldn’t give to anyone, unless stated otherwise in the lists below.

Universal Love: Pink Diamond, Golden Pearl, Rainbow Wool

Universal Dislikes: Artefacts, Beach Scavengeables, Building Materials, Fertilizer, Fish, Geodes, Grass, Grains, Insects, Kelp, Metal Bars, Ores, Canola Oil, Cotton, Grass, Wheat Flour

Universal Hates: Bombs, Dinosaur Bones, Farming Equipment, Fodder, Garbage, Ore, Seeds

Of course, along with universal item dislikes are universal likes. You normally can’t go wrong with flowers (sans Charles), gems or artisanal products. Unless stated otherwise. The items will be more specific in the list below.

Universal Likes: Artisan Goods, Cooked Dishes, Flowers, Fruit, Gems, Vegetables

Alice is the twin sister of Suki, who owns and runs the Coral Inn. Running a business is hard, and running it with your sister is harder. Alice spends her days working at the inn and her free time hanging out with friends in town or reading a good book.

She is good friends with Noah, and they are often spotted together grabbing morning coffee—or having an in-depth discussion about unexplainable phenomena.

Macy grew up on a neighbouring island and now lives full-time at the Coral Inn. She makes a living by selling images to a visual media company.

Before embarking on a life as an artist, she moved back home, catching up with her family while preparing for her island-hopping career. Though she didn’t say how long she would stay on Coral Island, she mentioned that she would eventually move on to another island, unless she has a good reason not to.

An only child. She loves simple nights, taking pictures and playing video games with Stephen, her rescued lobster.

Suki runs the Coral Inn with her twin sister, Alice. She is recently divorced and, according to her nightstand, currently “finding love from within,” and learning “how to expand love.” Focusing on herself, she drowns herself in work, exercise, and building a healthy co-parenting relationship with her ex. Though she is no longer a Sanchez, she still keeps a close relationship with the whole family.

When Yuri is not busy keeping the islanders healthy, she can be spotted hanging out or playing chess at the beach shack. Yuri is not your usual MD—she spent her 20s as a doctor who crossed many borders, frequently dispatched to remote areas to practice for little to no pay. Presumably why she has no decent savings and decided to settle in Starlet Town, a boat ride away from her hometown, Tosaka.

She is close with her roommate, Millie, and fellow MD, Charles.
