Sherbet Island is the third world in Diddy Kong Racing and its remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS. The minimum requirement to enter this world is ten Golden Balloons. The door that leads to this world can be found on a small island at the beach side of Timber Island.

The courses of Sherbet Island feature beach and pirate-themed tracks, with many sandbanks, palm trees, ship wrecks, and bays. Many courses involve water in some way and the character uses a hovercraft to drive around the island's lobby. The boss of Sherbet Island is Bubbler the Octopus.

In the Tracks mode in the original Diddy Kong Racing, this world is the second on the list.

The DS remake features the entrance to Bubbler's course with an arch adorned with a statue of himself.


For courses where two or all three vehicles can be used, vehicles listed in bold print are the mandated vehicle during Adventure Mode and the Trophy Race, and other vehicles can only be used in a Time Trial or after the course is completed.

Darkwater Beach
N64: Crescent Island's Wish Key

Hovercraft The challenge takes place in a flooded area and the racers cruise with hovercrafts. Everyone of the four participants has eight bananas at the start, and loses a few of them if hit by a missile or another weapon. Several power-ups are spread across the field so the racers can attack each other. If a racer loses all bananas, they get disqualified. The last racer remaining wins, and if the player's character wins, they receive a piece of the T.T. amulet.

In the DS remake, Challenge Levels were replaced by Wish Races against T.T. in the Adventure Mode, being playable only in multiplayer.
