Our Delfino Plaza blue coins guide is part of our Super Mario Sunshine walkthrough and lists locations for all 20 Delfino Plaza blue coins.
Unlike every other world in our Super Mario Sunshine walkthrough, Delfino Plaza has a total of 20 blue coins to collect instead of the usual 30. One is found in Delfino Airstrip while the other 19 are found in Delfino Plaza proper. Some of these despicably placed blue coins can be found in plain site while others require a little more luck to find. And maybe a guide! Blue coins can be taken to the racoon in Delfino Plaza where you can trade 10 blue coins for a Shine Sprite.

Blue Coin 1
Standing by the Pinna Park cannon, look at the nearest tower and spray down the M to reveal your coin.
Blue Coin 2
Look at the base of the small tower above the canal. Smash the crate to reveal the M. Nearby the racoon house.
Blue Coin 3
Go past the racoon house and look for an X at the end of the dock. Spray it down to reveal a blue coin at the Pianta statue. Spray and slide to get there before time runs out!
Blue Coin 4
Now do the reverse of Blue Coin 3, this time starting at the Pianta statue.
Blue Coin 5
Walk behind the Pianta statue and hop up onto the roof on the building. On the left side you’ll find a blue bird. Perch yourself nearby and spray the bird as it flies by. Hit it enough and the bird will transform into a blue coin. Was it worth it?
Blue Coin 6
Another blue bird, this time on top of the roof above the crate smash building.
Blue Coin 7
Sewer time. Enter the manhole near the canal exit and use the sewer tunnel to reach the area near the island. Take a left at the first junction and look for the blue coin at a dead end.
Blue Coin 8
More sewers! Enter the manhole near the Pianta statue and make your way to the canal area. The blue coin is at a dead end near the Shine Gate.
Blue Coin 9
Sewers, again! Ground pound the manhole to the right of the Shine Gate and follow the path leading to Corona Mountain. The blue coin can be found at a dead end.
Blue Coin 10
At the base of the Shine Gate is a small dock with a wooden crate. Smash it to reveal an M.
Blue Coin 11
There’s a blue coin inside the jail near the beach. On the backside of the jail is a hole you can enter to get inside. A simple hover should get you in!
Blue Coin 12
The next four blue coins can get a bit tedious. There’s a Pianta with a basket just below the Sirena Beach pipe. She wants you to bring her three bananas and toss them into the basket. Do this and speak to her to get your blue coin. You can find bananas at the fruit market on the east side of town. Once you have your banana, stand a bit back, jump, and throw the banana to correctly toss it in.
Blue Coin 13
Another basket lady. This one is located to the right of the Shine Gate. This one wants pineapples which can be easily found at the fruit market. Stand near the Pianta, then jump and throw the pineapple to toss it in.
Blue Coin 14
The next basket lady is to the left of the Shine Gate. This one wants durians, the fruit you have to kick instead of picking up. Yikes. You can find durians near the racoon house. Lightly bring the durian under the arch near the canal, then run and dive into the durian to launch it across the canal. From there, slowly tap it into the basket. Yes, you have to do this three times.
Blue Coin 15
One more basket lady. This one is on the western island and she wants coconuts. Thankfully there are coconuts in the palm tree and you can bring them down by spraying at them. Stand on the manhole and do a light jump and throw to make it in.
Blue Coin 16
There’s a Pianta running up and down the fruit market on the east side of the island. He’s also on fire! Hose him down while running and wipe out the fire to get your blue coin! Only obtainable after unlocking Gelato Beach!
Blue Coin 17
Attach the Turbo Nozzle and blast towards the tall rocks behind the Gelato Beach lighthouse. Slam into the orange doors at the base of one of the rocks to smash right into a blue coin. Only obtainable after unlocking the Turbo Nozzle!
Blue Coin 18
Hatch the Yoshi from the egg on the radio tower roof and ride it over to the police station. Look behind the tower to find that horrid yellow gunk. Use Yoshi’s juice (gross) to disintegrate the gunk and reveal the blue coin. Only obtainable after unlocking Yoshi in Pinna Park!
Blue Coin 19
Another Yoshi blue coin. Bring Yoshi to the tower near the Pinna Park cannon and spray the yellow gunk off the top to reveal a blue coin. Only obtainable after unlocking Yoshi in Pinna Park!
Blue Coin 20 (Delfino Airstrip)
Pay the Pianta near the racoon house 10 coins to travel to Delfino Airstrip. Once there, use the Turbo Nozzle to break through the doors of the building. Spray down the ice cube inside to reveal your final blue coin. That’s it! You got them! This horror story is finally over. Hatch the Yoshi from the egg on the radio tower roof and ride it over to the police station. Look behind the tower to find that horrid yellow gunk. Use Yoshi’s juice (gross) to disintegrate the gunk and reveal the blue coin. Only obtainable after unlocking Corona Mountain!
