    Synopsis

    The bright, cheerful sun sends rays of warmth down to the sparkling sands and glistening waves on shore. There's soft calypso music in the background, and the ice-cold mai tais are plentiful. All you can see are palm trees, clear blue waters, white sand and brightly colored umbrellas. You can choose to catch a tan on the beach, snorkel to see some wildlife or go scuba diving in search of sunken treasure. The world is your oyster — you are truly living on an Island Paradise.

    If this sounds like the perfect scenario to you, then chances are your Sims will agree. It's time for your Sims to pack their bags — they're moving to the tropics. Thousands of adventures await on the sunny shores or beneath the crystal-clear waters. Your Sims can uncover sunken treasure, canoodle with mermaids, sail the seas, discover uncharted islands and so much more — all before the bags are unpacked. Once you're settled in, it's time to rake in the Simoleans and build an island paradise resort according to your exact specifications with all the luxurious amenities that attract five-star ratings. Whether you want to start a family-oriented resort with waterslides and buffet tables, an isolated romantic retreat with minimalistic cottages or a happening singles spot with multiple pool bars, your resort is sure to bring them out in droves. All that dough is going to go towards building your Sims an island paradise of their own. Build a fully customizable houseboat that can be moored at any port, so your Sims can move from island to island at every whim. Do your Sims love the view but prefer the land? New stilted foundations let you build a house that straddles land and sea for the best of both worlds. So grab your snorkel, put on some sunscreen and get ready to enjoy the tropics with The Sims 3: Island Paradise.
