Wayward Wiki

An island in Wayward is used both to refer to specific islands in the archipelago, and the archipelago at large. Your ultimate goal is to "escape the island", but there are an infinite number of islands and travelling between them does not constitute "escape". That goal more specifically refers to building a sailboat, accumulating treasure, and using the "Escape the island" action on the sailboat.

Each island is one of four biomes: Coastal, Arid, Ice Cap, or Volcanic.

You may travel between them using a raft, bull boat, or sailboat, with each increasing tier of "Paddle" skill allowing you to travel to more distant islands in one trip.
