In Majora's Mask, Great Bay Coast is the name given to a beach located directly west of Termina Field. Featuring landmarks such as the Pirates' Fortress and Pinnacle Rock, it is the most prominent locale of the Great Bay region.
The Great Bay Coast is vastly inhabited by a robust population of Zoras and many unnatural water creatures. It used to be very much an enchanting sea paradise, but a turn of events has contaminated the once elegant waters of Great Bay. The once natural aquatic-life that inhabited the waters have been decomposed and replaced by other fierce sea creatures that are very dangerous. The curse that has been cast upon the ocean has converted it into a treacherous bay inhabited by the dominant and deadly. In order to dispel the curse, Link must find its source. The Zora's that still inhabit the area may be of assistance.
It is here that Link first encounters Mikau, one of the guitarists of the band The Indigo-Go's. Washed up in the shore and nearly dead, Link rescues him, and the young guitarist informs him about Lulu's problem. Mikau passes away shortly after Link plays the Song of Healing, encasing his soul inside the Zora Mask.
To the far east of the coast is the impenetrable, secluded fortress of the Gerudo Pirates. As described by Mikau, it was the Pirates themselves who stole Lulu's precious Zora Eggs and took them to their hideout. It is up to Link to gain entry inside the fortress and infiltrate it to retrieve the stolen eggs. It's a vast structure on tight guard, so Link will have to keep well-hidden in order to succeed on his mission.
Near the coast is the isolated Marine Research Laboratory, where marine biology and other aquatic experiments are analyzed and carried out. Lately the professor has become concerned of the whereabouts of the Zora eggs and requests that Link finds them and brings them to his lab as quickly as possible, for the Zora eggs may die if they aren't taken care of under the appropriate conditions.
On the shore and near the entrance to the Great Bay Coast is the Oceanside Spider House, a lonely, abandoned house full of storage boxes, cobwebs, and Gold Skulltulas; moreover, the Fisherman's Hut is located to the right of the Spider House. Up north, the entrance to Pinnacle Rock can be found, which is home to the Deep Pythons. Finally, the southern end of the Great Bay Coast leads to Zora Cape, the area where Zora Hall and the Waterfall Rapids are located.
