Coral Island – Bachelorette Romance Guide (Updated)

The brightly lit and vibrant farming and life sim Coral Island is finally out of Early Access and in the wild as version 1.0! 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 70 islanders call this place home and are relying on you to help save the environment.

And of those 70 islanders are 28 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: This article has been updated and re-released since its last post on the 21st of November 2022. Coral Island came out officially from Early Access on November 14th 2023.


How To Romance Characters

Just like most life sim games, you’ll be able to romance your characters after first being good friends with them. To do this you’ll need to increase their heart meter, which will start off from zero hearts and be able to go up to eight for friends. Do this by simply greeting them every day and giving them gifts of their favourite items. Other specific events such as seasonal, town etc. will also contribute to improving your relationship level with them.

Once your heart levels have gone up with these characters you’ll be able to unlock Heart Events. Heart events are cutscenes and interactions that occur at different points in your relationship level. For example, reaching 4 hearts or 8 hearts will trigger a Heart Event. These occur at various intervals per character, though usually about every two hearts.


How To Get Married

The maximum number of hearts you can reach with a friend is eight hearts, once you’ve reached that point you can then consider confessing to start dating them. This will unlock two more hearts on the relationship meter for you to gain.

At this point, you’re able to date and continue increasing the relationship affection of all the eligible marriage candidates. However, once you confess and agree to marry someone you can only marry one at a time. To marry a character, you’ll have to have reached ten hearts with them. And after witnessing all of their heart events, you’ll be able to propose to them and get married.


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 LovesPink Diamond, Golden Pearl, Rainbow Wool
Universal DislikesArtefacts, Beach Scavengeables, Building Materials, Fertilizer, Fish, Geodes, Grass, Grains, Insects, Kelp, Metal Bars, Ores, Canola Oil, Cotton, Grass, Wheat Flour
Universal HatesBombs, 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

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, is 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 that’s 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.
