Sunshine Isles is one of the exclusive courses that is found in Super Mario 64 DS. The entrance to the course is the painting in the Rec. Room, which requires one Power Star to access. It is also a selectable stage in the game's multiplayer mode. The course is based on and named after Super Mario Sunshine, with the course's music being an arrangement of Delfino Plaza's theme.
Sunshine Isles consists of five small islands with a larger one in the center located in a large shallow ocean. Several of the islands have palm trees and some also have grass covering them, though each is made up of sand. Klepto from Shifting Sand Land circles the one area of the course, with two Lakitus hovering over others. One the center island, there is a sleeping Piranha Plant and a Goomba, with another Goomba on one of the other islands. If the player tries to leave the area, they will be stopped by an invisible wall. On the northern island is a ! Block containing a Shiny Shell.
Only one Power Star can be collected in this course. Located around the isles are 5 Silver Stars that the player has to collect. Once all of the Silver Stars are collected, the Power Star will appear on the Star Sphere on the island that the player started on. The locations of all the Silver Stars are:
- Being held by Klepto.
- In a cave behind the center island.
- In a tree, on the isle with the lone Goomba.
- On the southeastern isle.
- At the top of the center island.
It is one of the only two secret courses, along with Battle Fort, to have only one Power Star.
