How to fix the beach bridge
1. Collect wood
To fix the beach bridge, you will need to collect 300 pieces of wood. This may sound like a lot but if you follow our guide on how to farm wood, you will have enough pieces very quickly.
2. Head to the bridge
Once you have 300 pieces of wood, head to the broken beach bridge. The bridge is next to Elliot's house which can be found on the beach south of Pelican Town. If you cannot find the beach, head to Mayor Lewis's house and keep heading south from his front door. This should bring you to a stone bridge that you can walk over and this will take you onto the beach.
3. Equip the wood and fix the bridge
When you have found the bridge you need to equip your wood. Once you are holding it above your head, head to the broken half of the bridge. Press your action button when you are at the edge of the broken half and a text box should appear. Select "Yes" and the bridge will instantly be fixed.
What happens when you fix the beach bridge?
When you fix the broken beach bridge, you will gain access to another area with Rock Pools in it. Items such as Coral and Sea Urchins will spawn in or around these pools. You can also find Clams, Mussels, and Rainbow Shells, amongst a variety of other nautical foraging items. You can sell things like Clams and Sea Urchins to Willy at the Fish Shop for a high price. They're a really good way of making a lot of money fast as they respawn every few days or so.
