Yoshi's Island 3 is the third level of Yoshi's Island in Super Mario World. It takes place on a high mountain and features a lot of yellow ! Blocks that can make a hidden area easier to find if the Yellow Switch is pressed. Clearing this stage grants access to Yoshi's Island 4.


Super Mario World.

The level starts with a Message Block giving information on Dragon Coins. Right next to the block, a row of yellow ! Blocks can be found. When the player follows the path up the steps and to the right, they come across a platform that starts to rotate when stepped on. When going on, the player finds some Stretch Blocks. The first Dragon Coin can be found above. After another swinging platform, the player finds a Red Koopa Paratroopa. Soon there is another type of platform. These are black and white and simply move either horizontally or vertically. After a red-shelled Koopa Troopa, there are some more of the rotating platforms. There is a hidden Warp Pipe below the first one. The pipe leads to a simple underground room where the second Dragon Coin is found. Leaving the room through the Warp Pipe takes the player near the Midway Gate.

After a Green Koopa Paratroopa, there is the third Dragon Coin and another Message Block talking about how to perform high jumps. Next, there is a row of five Rotating Blocks with a Koopa Troopa on the top. After various moving platforms, the player comes across the fourth Dragon Coin. Between more platforms, the first Bonus Block in the game can be found, providing the player with a 1-Up Mushroom, if the player had collected 30 coins in this level. Otherwise, it only yields a single coin. Soon after crossing two more swinging platforms, the player reaches the fifth Dragon Coin. A bit further, there is the Giant Gate, with no enemies protecting it.
