Mario Kart DS[edit]

Daisy drives toward a small ramp just before the lighthouse

The course's layout is relatively short. The racing line is on the sand, and a wooden boardwalk is straight ahead. The boardwalk has wooden ropes on both sides, which prevent racers from falling off. While on the boardwalk, racers must turn right, as a sign indicates, and then drive over a large Dash Panel ramp to land onto a wide sand area below. From hereon, the sand path is surrounded by a large body of water on both sides. When racers land onto the sand, they must take a circular turn and drive under two large arched rock structures (resembling the large, pink one from Peach Beach in Mario Kart: Double Dash!!). After this is a Dash Panel ramp in the center of the course. Racers can optionally drive onto it for a speed boost.

After the ramp, racers must continue on the swerving sand path ahead. They must avoid driving into coconut trees and crabs along the way. They must also avoid driving into a few Cheep Cheeps which bounce in the shallow water. Racers must avoid driving into the deep water, which is out of bounds. After turning left then right, racers must follow a straight path ahead. There are two small ramps ahead, each having a red arrow pointed upward. Racers can optionally use these ramps to move over the shallow water. A white lighthouse is shown in the background, standing on a gray wall. From there, racers must take a left turn and continue straight past two Cheep Cheeps and three palm trees at the left shoreline. The gray wall continues up to the start of a twisted jungle, which is pointed out by a wooden post with a large, red arrow pointing right. A few Item Boxes indicate the jungle's threshold.

In the jungle, racers drive on a dirt path that is closed off by a small, white and pink fence to the left and right each. Coconut trees and other tropical trees are behind both fences. After the jungle, racers drive back out to the beach, where the racing line is straight ahead.

Panorama of the track in Mario Kart 8

As a returning stage, Cheep Cheep Beach received design changes. Like Cheep Cheep Lagoon from Mario Kart 7, the course received a banner with its course name in it, while the starting banner has been redesigned to resemble a volleyball net. The course, like the other retro courses, has received an HD upgrade in visuals, and has a live-recorded cover version of its theme. The water tide no longer changes, anymore. Due to that, Cheep Cheeps now swim in the water instead of hopping on the course. Furthermore, a few of them now occasionally jump over where the racers glide from the boardwalk and where racers jump off the ramp, serving as obstacles. Piantas are now seen at the starting line. The start of the course where the boardwalk merges into the sand has had the Dash Panel replaced with a Glide Ramp, and the course has high tide. Underneath the sea, coral reefs are now present. The last turn before the start and finish line now has a mud on the corner, which a racer can use an item such as a Mushroom to cut through the mud. On the last stretch of the dirt section before the finish line, two ramps have been added for racers to perform a trick.


In Mario Kart DS, there are two missions that take place on Peach Beach:

  • Mission 1-4: Wario starts at the entrance of the jungle portion, facing the beach. He must use Stars to hit five Cheep Cheeps within 40 second.
  • Mission 2-5: Princess Peach must pick up 20 coins within 30 seconds.


There are no track sponsors in Mario Kart DS. In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, there are four different sponsors:

  • European website bio: "Offering all-year-round sunshine and a never-ending supply of fresh fish, Cheep Cheep Beach is a great place to relax after a race. But make sure to lay your towel well away from the track, otherwise you'll find unsightly tire marks spoiling your all-over tan."
