Disney Dreamlight Valley: How to Unlock the Beach Biome

Progression in Disney Dreamlight Valley is measured, to some extent, by the biomes you unlock. They give players access to new materials, quests, and unique events.

The first biome players are going to unlock is going to be Dazzle Beach, located just below the main village.

However, unlocking it can be tricky since it’s tied to finishing one of the story quests and gathering enough dreamlight to unlock it.

In this guide, I’ll explain how to unlock the beach biome early in the game and go through the new materials available in that biome.

How to Unlock the Beach Biome

To unlock the beach biome, progress through your story quests with Merlin. Eventually, you’ll get a quest named “Friendship is Everything”. This quest will require you to reach level five friendship with three characters.

Then, follow the questline to repair a pillar on the lower side of the village. After completing the quest, you’ll be able to unlock new biomes via dreamlight.

Your first upgrade should be the Beach Biome, located just below the main village. It costs 1.000 dreamlight to unlock and gives you the next set of quests and materials to progress in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

  1. Don’t miss daily discussions 
  2. Provide any gifts you can
  3. Always have a villager hanging out with you (especially while farming crops)

After unlocking and progressing through the beach biome, you’re probably wondering what’s the next step.

Well, while you have many options and are free to unlock whichever biome you want, I highly recommend going to the Forest of Valor.

It costs 3.000 dreamlight to unlock and gives you access to new characters, crops, and materials. For instance, you gain access to Iron, an essential ore for progressing the story.


In short, to unlock the beach biome players will need to complete the ‘Friendship is Everything’ story quest given my Merlin. Then, they should head below the village and spend 1.000 dreamlight to unlock it.

And that’s all. The new biome gives players access to new materials that add another unique twist to Disney Dreamlight Valley.
