Stardew Valley Wiki

Ginger Island is an island in the Fern Islands archipelago which can be accessed after repairing the boat in the backroom of Willy’s Fish Shop and buying tickets, which in turn is accessed after completing the Community Center, and reaching 8 hearts with Willy.

The player can return to Stardew Valley at any time for free by entering the boat on the southern beach. They will usually arrive back inside the Fish Shop, except on festival days when the path back to the Farm may be blocked, in which case the player will be deposited on the Bus Stop instead. If the beach is inaccessible, on days such as the Dance of the Moonlight Jellies festival, the player will be deposited on the bridge leading to the beach south of Pelican Town.

Similar to the Greenhouse, crops planted on Ginger Island are not affected by the current season, so they can always grow.

Ginger Island is the only island available to visit in the archipelago, though other islands can be seen from the boat on the way there.
