Compare the just-as-tranquil GreenHillZone, which is more [[GhibliHills grassland]] or inland than PalmtreePanic and will usually be one of the starting levels. There is considerable overlap between the two.

* Most ''{{Pokemon}}'' games have at least one beach area. There aren't any wild Pokemon on the beaches themselves, but go surfing and you'll run into plenty of [[GoddamnedBats Tentacool/Tentacruel and Wingull/Pelipper]], plus things like Goldeen/Seaking and Mantyke from time to time. (Frillish/Jellicent in Gen V). The Swimmer, Tuber and Sailor trainer classes are often found here. Plenty of other water Pokémon are found by fishing with various rods. ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and Emerald seem to have the most individual beach areas, due to Hoenn being a warm, tropical region with lots of coastline, but there's plenty of coast in all five gens.

Added DiffLines:

Musically, the beach area almost always has background music with steel pans, pedal steel guitars, or ukuleles. Instrumentation stereotypical to tropical islands.

These levels are not entirely UnderTheSea, but feature the edge of land and water. This can be an easy, fun and relaxing level in the style of a BeachEpisode, but not always, since the beach can be dramatic. Expect palm trees, sand, fun Caribbean-style music and jetskis. May overlap with GangplankGalleon and/or UnderTheSea, or located near a PortTown.
