Koopa Beach 1 is the first Koopa Beach track in Super Mario Kart's Star Cup. The stage is largely surrounded by water. Cheep Cheeps make their first Mario Kart appearance in this course as hazards that can make a racer spin out. They bounce in the water and sometimes in the sand. The shallow water will provide a slight decrease in speed, but not much. If a player stays in the deep water too long, Lakitu will have to fish them back on to the beach. One island near the end provides a fork in the road due to grass in the middle. This course reappears in Mario Kart: Super Circuit as the third course in the Extra Lightning Cup. It is the prequel to Koopa Beach 2.
