Coral Island – The Complete Guide To Summer

Coral Island is a farming and life sim that has you improving and living your life on a gorgeous tropical island. Every day is a new adventure from looking after your plants and animals, building relationships, diving into the ocean and more. Seasons change in the year and with it brings a whole lot of new items and things to see and do. Here’s a guide to everything you’ll need for the Summer season.

Including all the fish and bugs available, what you’ll need to donate to the Lake Temple when to plant your crops, what to prepare for each festival and much more. We’ll be breaking this guide down by the day and then the individual lists for you to refer to later.


Summer Calendar

In the first week of the calendar season, it’ll be important for you to grow and expand your crops. After taking care of your farm you’ll be able to spend the rest of the day mining, fishing, diving, catching bugs etc. We’ve just put the notable things that you should start doing each day.

For birthdays we’ve left a ❤️emoji for potential bachelors and bachelorettes that you may wish to start dating. As well as a list of the person’s favourite gifts to further increase your relationship with them.

Summer In Coral Island

Best Crops to Plant

The best profit-yielding Spring Crops are Bell Pepper, Blackberry and Blueberry.

In the Summer of Year 1, you may or may not have reached Town Rank D. If you have done so then you’ll be able to plant Blackberry and Coffee Beans. If not you should focus on Blueberry, Corn and Hot Pepper. These plants are regrowing so make sure you’ve saved some money by the end of Spring to start planting them early.

For a full list of Summer Crops check out our list here.
