Charmy Bee, Sonic Heroes

Seaside Hill is the first stage of Sonic Heroes, and a recurring location in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.


The place is very tropical and takes place on grassy cliffsides and beaches. It seems to be an homage to Green Hill Zone from the original Sonic the Hedgheog, having checkered walls and palm trees. The stage that comes after it is Ocean Palace.

In 2P Play, the scenery takes place at sunset much like Sea Gate and even uses Sea Gate's BGM.


After receiving Eggman's message in the desert, Team Sonic somehow manages to get to the island coast and heads to the Whale Island to stop Eggman from taking over the world. Team Dark also appears at the scene to go to the Whale Island for Shadow to learn about his past, Rouge to get the Doctor's treasure, and for Omega to get revenge for being locked up with Shadow. Team Rose leaves the beach at Seaside Hill to go to Whale Island for Amy to find Sonic, Big to find Froggy, and for Cream to find Chocola. Team Chaotix arrive at the beach to collect ten hermit crabs to prove their detective skills to their client.

Seaside Hill in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

A snow-covered version of Seaside Hill appears as the location for the Dream Alpine Event in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. In the opening of this Event right before showing the characters, the camera pans around and gives players a view of the starting gate. Giant fans can be seen blowing artificial snow onto the stage, so it is safe to assume that it doesn't snow here often.

Seaside Hill appears as a beginner track in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing and is the only stage available in the demo. It is very simplistic, however, it carries many elements from this stage, such as the ramps and cliffs. It is also widely different, due to the fact that this stage is somewhat combined with Ocean Palace and has some elements from Green Hill Zone, including sunflowers and totem poles, and Labyrinth Zone, including traps and carved stone blocks (strongly resembling the ones from the fourth stage of Sonic the Hedgehog). A remixed version of the stage music from Sonic Heroes plays. Chao are bystanders in this track.

Sonic Generations

Seaside Hill was included in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, where it was the last Dreamcast era level, and also adds underwater segments. It also includes several segments of Ocean Palace. The cannons from the original are scattered around, as well as the return of the giant turtles and the bobsled. Despite being based on itself from Sonic Heroes, it is more reminiscent of Ocean Palace. If the player completes both Acts, they will save Espio.
