The Plundering the Bay Accomplishment, much akin to Kilima Caches, is an achievement players can unlock by meeting its prerequisite. Like with the Kilima Caches, players must locate and collect Treasures found throughout Bahari Bay and grab the rewards inside.

For this achievement, they'll run throughout Bahari Bay, climbing, jumping, gliding, and walking to reach caves, mine shafts, platforms, and pillars to collect these chests and make progress towards this achievement. If players are ready to plunder their way across Bahari Bay, they can read this detailed guide, which provides them with all the map locations and directions to find these Treasure Chests for the Plundering The Bay Accomplishment in Palia.

How To Find The 30 Treasure Chests For Plundering The Bay Accomplishment In Palia?

As mentioned, the Plundering the Bay Accomplishment requires players to find and collect 30 Treasures across Bahari Bay. There are 34 Treasure Chests, but only 30 are needed to meet the achievement's prerequisite and earn its corresponding rewards.

They must overcome obstacles blocking access to these chests, like climbing grated ruins and sprinting across bridges to reach them. Some of these Treasure Chests are found in hard-to-reach and inaccessible areas, and players are to have a glider on hand, which first can be obtained when completing the Like A Bird quest.

We highly advise players to free their Backpack Inventory or upgrade it, as these chests and the rewards acquired will rapidly occupy inventory slots. They can upgrade this at Zeki's General Store in Kilima Village, where the Large Backpack costs 5,000 Gold, and the Deluxe Backpack costs 25,000 Gold.

We won't be adding the chest locations that are locked behind quests for new players who've joined the game on Nintendo Switch, and as such, these chests are found in open-world locations. We've detailed the 30 locations where players can discover Treasure Chests in Bahari Bay:
