Martha's Bay is a small water inlet on the south coast of Koholint Island. It is named after the mermaid that inhabits the waters, Martha. The term also refers to the region surrounding it. This region borders Toronbo Shores to the west, Ukuku Prairie to the north, and Animal Village to the east. Another region east of the bay is simply called East of the Bay, but is inaccessible from the bay proper, as is the region to the northwest known as Pothole Field. The fifth dungeon, Catfish's Maw, is located here, in the center of the bay, surrounded by a reef. The abandoned home of a wayward Ghost stands in the southwest part of the region. The Ghost is escorted back to his home by Link and makes his peace with death before returning to his grave in Koholint Prairie.
Beneath the bridge in this region is a Fisherman who has lost his fishing hook. Link trades a new hook to him in exchange for his next catch, which is fortunately the mermaid Martha's necklace. Martha had lost the necklace, and Link returns it in exchange for one of her scales. Later, Link discovers the resting place of the Magnifying Lens on the bay's shore by placing the scale in the unfinished Mermaid Statue.
Other notable landmarks in the area include two Telephone Booths on opposite sides of the bay and the entrance to Animal Village. Being full of water, this region is very difficult to navigate without the Flippers.
