The temperature is rising – it’s summer in the city. Unlock the Beach Specialization to let your citizens cool off and have fun on the Beach Boardwalk.
Tap the shoreline next to your Cargo Dock to see which sea-themed Special Items are required to unlock your first Beach area. Accumulate the necessary Items from opinion bubbles, tap ‘Expand’ to confirm, and the first section of palm-tree-lined Beach Boardwalk will appear. If you don’t have the heart to listen to your citizens’ opinion bubbles (sad times, Mayor!) you can buy missing Special Items for SimCash.
Unlock more of your Beach by collecting more sea-themed Special Items. Beach expansion areas must be unlocked in order, so tap the next zone to the right to see what you need.
Congratulations Mayor, you’ve unlocked some prime, seafront real estate in which to expand your city. Check out which Beach Specialization buildings you can build on your shoreline by tapping the Beach icon in your Specializations menu.
Please note - your shoreline is the only area in your city you can place these exclusive Beach Specialization buildings, and the Beach Specialization is the only building type you can place on your shoreline too.
Most Beach buildings are purchasable with Golden Keys. Start collecting Keys by successfully completing Air or Sea Cargo Shipments or rebuilding your city if Disaster strikes. Alternatively, you can drag the chosen Specialization building onto your city then exchange your SimCash for any Keys needed.
What would you like to see on your Beach? An Aquarium? A Lifeguard Tower? Maybe even Bluebeard’s Ship. Just like other Specialization buildings, each Beach building gives a valuable population boost to residential buildings nearby. Tap each building to see what effect it will have.
As space on the Beach is precious, to reorder your Beach buildings just get them to swap places. Tap and hold any building, then slide it along your shoreline to its new position. Any buildings that were previously there will automatically change their position.
