Location and Uses
Secret Seashells are hidden collectibles scattered across Koholint Island. There is a total of 26 Secret Seashells for Link to find. They can be found underneath Bushes, Rocks, underwater, or inside Treasure Chests. Though typically obtained one at a time, Link may receive two at the Seashell Mansion as long as he is already carrying exactly five or ten seashells.
Once the Level 2 Sword is obtained, any remaining Secret Seashell will either disappear or be replaced with 20 Rupees.
