Get Inspired With These Perfect Peninsula Design Ideas From Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The internet is full of inspiring examples of gorgeous gardenswonderful waterfalls and cool campsites from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As inspiration is everywhere, you may have finished decorating your island. I thought I had. However, every Animal Crossing: New Horizons island has a pesky little strip of land that juts out into the sea.

These peninsulas are pesky in the sense that they can seem both too big and too small to do anything with, in addition to being oddly shaped.

Upon beginning the game back in the spring, I simply placed a bench and tourist telescope on mine. These two objects would remain there right up until recently, after I went searching for design ideas.

And design ideas I found! From terraformed terrain with lighthouses, to picturesque picnic spots for teddy bears, I discovered that there are plenty of creative ways to fill these spaces on your island. Whilst many more examples exist, here are a few of the best peninsula design ideas from Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Diving Spots

Thanks to the game’s summer update, players can now dive and swim. Whilst you can simply wade into the ocean from beach areas, fans came up with a much more fun way of entering the water: Diving spots! The more spectacular diving spots usually combine cliffs and a ramp (which allows suited up players to run and somersault into the sea).
