Rice Beach is the starting point of Wario's adventure to steal the rumored Princess Toadstool statue in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. The area is a small beach on the west side of Kitchen Island that has a couple caves past the water. Rice Beach contains six levels and one secret treasure. The main beach has typical pirate fare: skull-and-crossbones-covered boxes and barrels probably owned by the Black Sugar Gang litter the sand. The beach is home to various creatures, such as Wanderin' Gooms, Pirate Gooms, Munchers, Guragura, Togemaru, Droppers, Yadorā, and Gaugau. Up past the sandy beach lie the caves. Lava, spikes, and long, twisty caverns are obstacles that Wario must pass to proceed, and the caves also house Pirate Gooms, Pouncers, Demon Bats, and Penkoons. The Spiked Koopa, Rice Beach's boss, also lives in the caves. Wario must defeat the dangerous turtle to move on to the next world, Mt. Teapot.

Course No. 01 and Course No. 03 experience a high tide once the world is complete. The two levels become partially submerged, although they will retain the same level design. This high tide allows new areas to be reached.
