The North Coast is the least populated, the least urbanized, and the most rural area of Community Island. However, the Kapetapeta Highway through the area is often jammed with Sims visiting from other parts of the island or other parts of the SimWorld.

The following pictures were taken in July. During the summer months, the beaches of the North Coast are extremely popular with locals and tourists. The ocean is calm and clear. During the winter months, storms in SimAlaska generate waves that reach the Paradisian Islands. The composition of the beachgoers change to surfers and spectators.

The Tonu Bay Resort is the furthest north one can go on this island. Tonu is the Paradisian word for turtle. This hotel is the only one on the North Coast. Its 880 acres include two 18-hole golf courses and a mile of shoreline. The State has an interest in buying the property, in order to preserve the area from further development.

In it's post-contact history, Tare'iva was a small plantation village and later an outpost for the Simerican military. Today, tourism is dominant. Shops and restaurants line Kapetapeta Highway.

Madinghill was an important captain of industry of Community Island in the 19th century. The CR&L Co. was founded by him. His decendants would also form other large businesses that influenced the growth of Capitalis. The only remaining airfield on the North Coast is named after Madinghill. It was built as part of the massive military expansion during the second SimWorld War. Today, the Simerican military leases it for use by small civilian aircraft.
