Best Super Mario Sunshine Worlds

The Top Ten
1 Pinna Park

All of these worlds are great, but I just love this amusement park the best! It isn't just an amusement park with a couple of rides and that's it - it has more! It has a beach, Mecha-Bowser, and yes, those rides that I mentioned earlier! But there are tons of rides - not just a few - tons!

There's a roller coaster (to defeat Mecha-Bowser), an out-of-control Ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, a pair of swinging pirate ships, and more. You can ride ALL of them! This is probably my favorite part of the game!

I'm really hoping that Super Mario Odyssey will have a tropical beach kingdom. We've already seen six kingdoms: a city, a frozen desert, a forest, a prehistoric kingdom, a food-themed kingdom, and even a cap-themed kingdom. All that's missing is Isle Delfino! Haha!

2 Noki Bay

Noki Bay is easily the most divisive level in the game due to its verticality, but to me, it is actually the most fun to play. The missions are awesome (other than Hold It, Shadow Mario).

It looks absolutely breathtaking, and there's a lot to do, like renting a boat, climbing up hidden ruins, and exploring Noki depths! Eely Mouth was also a cool boss.

One of the most gorgeous levels in the game, and I believe it's the level where you can actually skydive from the very top and land in water. It's such a cool world!

3 Ricco Harbor

Pretty cool world, cool music, and I love that saxophone. The level itself is quite cool too (love the environment).

4 Gelato Beach

Whenever I'm tired as heck or have tried to get some hard star in another level but didn't succeed, I always chill on this amazing beach with the best music.

5 Sirena Beach

Sirena Beach is the game's Ghost House level, and it does a really unique twist on it by being a hotel (Hotel Delfino) instead.

The place is on a beautiful beach with the sun setting on it. The missions are (mostly) great, and you are almost always in a new area for each mission. The two bosses are also really cool, Phantamanta being the better of the two.

My only problem is Episode 6, aka Scrubbing Sirena Beach, a lazy filler shine that is exactly what the name implies.

I've been playing this game for at least 9 years, and throughout that whole time, this place has amazed me. The hotel was so intricately designed, and it was easily the prettiest sunset I've seen in the game (and the only one).

Manta rays are still my favorite animal!

6 Pianta Village

I like how it's different from the other worlds. All the worlds are in some way surrounded by water, except Pianta Village (not including Corona Mountain).

Oh my god! This is the best world in Super Mario Sunshine, especially in the nighttime missions.

7 Delfino Plaza

Delfino Plaza is the hub world of Sunshine, and it's great! There's so much to do and see, and it really creates the atmosphere of a busy and bustling town or city.

Areas are blocked off by more natural barriers than in 64, like doors and high places. There are also even more missions. Sure, most of them are garbage, but does it really matter? Delfino Plaza is the centerpiece of Isle Delfino and a direct evolution of a hub world from Super Mario 64.

It should be remembered as the blueprint for how to do a hub world in Mario.

Complete with succulent seafood!

8 Bianco Hills

Bianco Hills is the first level of Super Mario Sunshine and does a really unique and good job. I love how the different missions are in different parts of the level, like the lake, windmill, hills, or village.

My only problem with this world is that some levels are WAY too hard for a first world, especially The Secret of the Dirty Lake. My favorite mission here is probably Red Coins of the Village, and Petey Piranha is a really good first boss.

Definitely deserves higher than number 8.

Pretty okay world. Nothing too special, although it looks beautiful. However, some of the missions are obnoxiously hard for a tutorial level, like The Secret of the Dirty Lake.
