How to find Pearls in Dinkum

Because of the random nature of the maps in Dinkum, it is difficult to say exactly where Pearls can be found. Like the Bushman, they show up in different places for every player. They come from clams in the ocean biome, so you’ll need to explore the watery areas of the map to get your hands on one. Look out for bubbles on the surface of the water, which indicate that there is something hidden below.

Dive down to the bottom of the ocean. You’ll have to check several of these spots before you find a clam, but when you do, you can harvest a pearl from it. The good news is that clams spawn pearls in Dinkum every few days, so mark it on your map and make it part of your routine to grab the pearl when it reappears.

The fact that clams don’t move and will spawn a new pearl regularly means that this is a great way to boost your regular income in Dinkum. If you’re looking to redecorate, you also have the option to create 16 pieces of Pearl Path by combining one pearl and two bags of cement at your Crafting Table.
