Lilypad Islands is a biome that appears in Subnautica: Below Zero.

It borders the Tree Spires, Purple Vents, World Edge, and the East Arctic.

The Lilypad Islands


The Lilypad Islands are large chunks of rock and soil suspended underwater by the buoyancy of the giant Lilypads floating on the surface, with the younger lilypads flourishing among other life forms closer to the seafloor. The decaying husks of gigantic, long-dead lilypads can be found on the seabed as well. Resources such as Quartz and Limestone Outcrops can be found scattered throughout the biome.

In the center of the area, a huge chunk of earth is suspended by many Lilypads growing on its surface. The crevice created around the edges of this forms the opening to a cavern underneath.

Spoiler alert: The following section contains story related material.

Omega Lab is located within the floating rock found in the center of the Lilypad Islands. The bow section of the human spacecraft Mercury II is also found in this biome, bordering the Tree Spires as well as the World Edge.


The Lilypad Islands Caves


The Lilypad Islands Caves are small cave systems located inside of the larger boulders suspended by the many Lilypads in the biome. These can drastically vary in size and can be seen being very cramped while others are large and spacious compared to others. The biome holds many unique resources such as Glow Whale Eggs and Gel Sacks, which can only be found in this area of the biome

Omega Lab can be found in one of the caves found in the largest island in the Lilypad Islands.
