Palm Shore is a battle course in Mario Kart DS, which has a resemblance to Cheep Cheep Beach, by being carried out in a set of small islands. The course contains no obstacles, having just a palm tree on one of the islands and surrounded by a shallow sea. The tide tends to change considerably the course; the water rises and falls every few seconds, flooding the center of the course. If racers run into deeper waters, their karts will slow down drastically, open for a potential opponent's attack. Many Item Boxes are just located in the center of the course. If racers run into dark blue water area, they will stop and get picked up byLakitu and brought back to the course, losing one balloon (in Balloon Battle) or Shine Sprite (in Shine Runners). The Mission 4-2 takes place here. Yoshi must blast 20 crabs in two minutes, using only Green Shells, Triple Green Shells and Bob-ombs.Luigi battling at Palm Shore onMario Kart 7.
Palm Shore reappears in Mario Kart 7 as a retro battle course. Although, technically, nothing has been added, the course offers water terrain which uses the propeller. Also, in the game, there are three palm trees instead of one and all of the item boxes can be found at the center island instead of them being spread out all over the stage. When players go outside of the island, they can drive a small piece under water, something what not happened in Mario Kart DS.
