Toronbo Shores is an area found to the south of Koholint Island in Link's Awakening. It mainly consists of the beach beside the ocean, containing water-reliant enemies such as Sea Urchins and Sand Crabs. Marin first finds Link washed upon these shores.


After being caught in a storm at sea, Link washes up on Toronbo Shores of Koholint Island.[1] Marin finds him and takes him back to Mabe Village.[2] When Link awakens, he returns to Toronbo Shores to retrieve his Sword.[3] This is where Link first meets the Owl and starts his adventure.[4]
