Tips and Tricks
From Official Site
What’s the difference between a attraction and a decoration?
Tourists pay shells each time they visit an attraction, whereas they do not pay to look at decorations. Also, attractions are upgradeable and decorations are not.
How many attractions can I have?
The number of attractions you can have depends on level and neighbors. Level up and get more neighbors for maximum number of building slots. Limited quantity buildings do not count against your building slots, so you can buy as many as you’d like.
How do I expand my island?
Currently there is no expansion feature – however you can add a second island to your account by clicking the MAP icon in the lower left and buying the new island shown there.
Can I move attractions or items from one island to the other?
No, there is currently no way to share supplies between islands. This applies to gifts as well – the island you are on when you use your gift is the island it will stay on.
How can I get my attractions to earn more shells quickly?
The speed of money collection depends on a variety of factors. Relative distance to other attractions/transportation, happiness and number of tourists, decorations, charms, and types of attractions all affect the rate at which tourists spend money.

How do I earn charms?
Pineapple, coconut drinks, and lei charms can all be earned by upgrading certain buildings (their shop image indicates which attractions do this). Other Tiki charms can be sent for free as gifts, or bought in the shop.
Why should I get neighbors?
Neighbors are awesome! Each day, visit their island for a daily bonus and pick up their trash for even more shells.
Neighbors will also send you free gifts that you can use to increase the value of your island and attractions.
Finally, some upgrades require a certain number of neighbors in order to unlock. However you can always use Facebook credits to get around that if you don’t want to add neighbors.
The key to long term success in the game is to keep your guests entertained and spending money. That means putting in a lot of reasons for them to stay. There are four different ways to improve a guests mood. Have them
visit one of your buildings, when they go to the beach, when they see something they want to take a photo of, or the super effective free cocktails. You can’t control when a tourist decides to go to the beach or go sight seeing. You can however set up your island to encourage as much shopping as possible. Of course, when all else fails there are always the free margaritas to keep them around and happy.
To keep your guests around as long as possible spread the access points to your island out as much as you can. Tourists will at first arrive at the dock or at the airstrip, make sure these two are as far apart as possible. The dock can not be moved, but your air field can. So your first task is to move the airfield up around the volcano as far from the beach as you can get. You will need the open space for your attractions soon enough anyway. The benefit of spreading out these access points is that your tourists will spend more time walking between them before they leave. This lets you see the paths they take and cleverly place attractions along the high traffic routes, and it gives you more time to identify annoyed guests who are in urgent need of free alcohol.
A truly annoyed guest will have a speech bubble over their head with a picture of a drink. This is the time to rush to their aid with free refreshments. This costs 2 shells, but it also earns you one experience point. Especially early in the game this is a huge advantage. The experience point is worth it, but the free drink also boosts the trouble guests mood to happy. This means they will not leave the island but look for an attraction instead. You will earn back the 2 shells you spend on the drink on their first visit to a building.
Happy tourists are real pigs though and constantly throw banana peels and empty drink containers all over the island. This might sound less then ideal but every time you pick up trash you are awarded an experience points and less importantly 2 shells. You can also visit your friends islands and clean up the mess their tourists leaves for the same rewards. With the low experience points requirements on the lower levels, trash pickup can be a great help in leveling up.
Once a day you will find a treasure chest floating in the bay. The chest is filled with 200 shells and also gives you 2 experience points. The best part is that you can find a chest on your neighbors’ islands too..
