The Sims 4: Island Living is the seventh expansion pack for The Sims 4. Its official description alongside various images were accidentally leaked by EA in Origin on June 7, 2019, essentially confirming the earlier rumors and leaks to be true.[1] The expansion pack was officially announced during EA Play on June 8, 2019 and released on June 21, 2019 for PC and Mac. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will be released on July 16, 2019.[2] It is a spiritual successor to The Sims 3: Island Paradise, with some elements of Vacation Island from The Sims: Vacation, Felicity Island and Wanmami Island from The Sims: Castaway Stories, and Twikkii Island from The Sims 2: Bon Voyage.

The expansion pack allows Sims to live in the world of Sulani, a tropical island full of deep waters, beaches and volcanic activity. Sims can enjoy themselves in many relaxing beach activities, lounging in cool waters, or exploring the oceans by either snorkeling or canoeing, where they can even meet mermaids, a playable life state reintroduced in this pack from The Sims 3: Island Paradise. Alongside mermaids, Sims can befriend dolphins, friendly aquatic creatures. Newcomer Sims to Sulani can introduce themselves to the friendly locals, who have many interesting traditions and can teach them more about their culture through their folklore stories. A conservationist career is also introduced along with lifeguard, diver and fisherman part-time jobs.

Escape the ordinary and enjoy a laid-back lifestyle.

Explore a breezy world drenched in sun, sand and endless fun as your Sims make their own paradise in The Sims 4 Island Living. Whether they contribute to the conservation effort or prefer living off the grid, your Sims can take the plunge and enjoy what this unique culture has to offer. Embrace traditional events, wear native clothing styles or sip on some kava. It’s all part of Sulani island life.


Sit Back and Relax. Welcome to Sulani, where the sun shines bright and the nights are totally chill. Set sail on the glistening water in your island canoe, swim to your heart’s content, and explore the scenery on a watercraft. Build a spectacular sand castle, catch some rays and even meet a mermaid!

Pitch In or Help Out. Become a conservationist, clean up the beaches and watch your Sims’ impact bloom all over the island. Take to the waves in a fishing or diving career, or become a lifeguard to keep the locals safe under the sun. No career? No problem! Sims can do odd jobs or fish for their next meal.

Engage in Local Culture. Tradition runs deep on Sulani, and your Sims get to experience everything it has to offer. Immerse Sims in their newfound lifestyle by attending a pit barbecue event, learning about local folklore, tasting tropical delicacies and chatting with ancestors from the island.

Rock the Island Vibes. Dress Sims in tropical garb inspired by sun, sand and waves. Or, gear up for water activities like snorkeling and swimming. Decorate a rustic oasis with home objects and unwind at the tiki bar. Everything is chill (except for the occasional sunburn) when it’s Island Living.

World and neighborhoods

Sulani is divided into three islands.

There is the bustling Ohan'li Town, this is where most lots on the islands reside. On this island, it was once a tiny fishing camp which was in between the tropic jungles and the lagoon waters. It's now one of the most bustling areas of Sulani. This has now developed into the main town region, this hasn't changed the deeply rooted sense of community and their strong connections to the Island traditions. Here on this island there is The Sand Bar, along with Ohan'li's own beach. Two sim families currently reside here, these are the Hoapili and the Kealoha. There are two free lots this would be the Lagoon Loook, where it's partially on the water, and the Tangled Flat.

Lani St. Taz, this is an idyllic tropical paradise where the beaches are filled with white sand, along with that the water is warm and vibrant. The lush jungle enviornments are perfect for getting lost in the timless island spirit. Some notable families that live here are the Kahananui and Ngata. There is also the Sand Simoleon Beach, which has the trait of "oceanic paradise" and a lots for your sim(s) to live in along with a free space (50x50) for you to make into whatever you want.

Mua Pel'am is situated near the active volcano. Here nature rules over this island, from the volcano to the gorgeous waterfall to the secluded cave. This remote island is the best place for exploring the beauty of nature. There are no sims that live on this island. There are currently two pre-built lots, the Admiral's Wreckage and the Caldera Camp, along with a free lot (40x30). Both Admiral's Wreckage and Key Point are "off the grid lots".

Mermaids are like normal sims with their needs, though mermaids require hydration, to keep it up go swimming, take a bath or even drink some water.  While in the water your sim is able to call upon the Azure Dolphin which takes away 30 hydration. Mermaids are also able to sunbathe and sleep while in the water.

Once an "ordinary" conch shell is blown, any mermaids nearby will go to where the conch has been blown at they'll let out a sound that's like a dolphin.
