The coconut is a resource item found in Stranded Deep. Coconuts act as a starting food and water source for newer players who are still adjusting to the game's environment.


A coconut can be acquired after hitting a green coconut with any sharp tool, such as a pocket knife.


The coconut itself serves as a compact "storage" of both food and fluids. In order to extract the coconut's fluids, one must strike the coconut once to turn it into a drinkable coconut. If the player hits the drinkable coconut a few more times, it will split into two coconut halves, which can then be consumed. Alternatively, one may also break a coconut open by lifting it (RMB by default) and throwing it against a hard surface (LMB by default).


  • A skinned coconut is visually identical to a drinkable coconut.
  • As of version 0.36, Coconuts will not respawn on palm trees from a custom made island.
  • If the player consumes too much coconut halves consecutively, they can get diarrhea, witch severely lowers the water level of the player.
