Coastal Ruins is the main hub world in Lost Cities, a realm that appeared in Spyro: A Hero's Tail. It is where the teleporting machine sends you after you have defeated Gnasty Gnorc. The realm is basically a large beach with coves, aquatic ruins, waterfalls, animals, caves, grassy hills, seashells and windmills, as well as campsites. The realm used to be an ancient city, but now it is a beautiful beach with possible ruins found in the water. It has a calypso-based tune which is quite noticeable, and also has a few Mediterranean elements added.
There is a secret area that you can visit. You need 20 Light Gems to unlock it. Sunken Ruins is accessible via a green circular left discovered after destroying a Dark Gem in the western area. Cloudy Domain is accessible via a mechanical circular left hidden in the grassy hills of the eastern area.
