Southeastern Shores
Southeastern Shores
Shores of the Southern Islets in the Southeast of The Island

A relatively tranquil region providing high visibility and relatively few large carnivores. An excellent starting location for new players; the East Spawn locations are scattered through this region.


The eastern edge of this region is a peaceful, idyllic coastline of sandy beaches, forests, and rolling hills. Raptors and hostile insects are the primary threats to new players, but Carnotauruses may also appear on occasion.

On the western side of the region, along the river system on the interior of the island, more serious threats emerge. Spinosaurus fish these rivers, and are best given a wide berth. If you go near the lake you will often find many Compy.


As the name suggests, shores. It opens out into the water, not always into the ocean, with about half of the SES based on inland rivers. It does partially protrude into the swamp, and narrowly misses the green obelisk (it was the blue obelisk until update 216.0). It is rich in all basic necessities, and it is similar to the South Haven, however, it lacks metal and small carnivores still lurk.

The biggest worries when it comes to predators for players is carnivores that wandered to the Southeastern Shores, such as Spinos or Raptors.

The Southeastern Shores are a perfect location for new players and for starting mid-game players, as metal is nearby and so are Giant Beaver Dams.
