Like with 2-1, this level is a desert-themed level, which introduces Spikes and Barrels.
- Koopa Troopas
- Star Coin 1: After getting off the elevator with the Koopa Troopas, just before the Checkpoint, there is a tall pit of quicksand. Drop into the quicksand and sink all the way to the bottom. Don't worry, you won't die instead you will be taken to a secret area. Hit the P Switch and fall and get as many Blue Coins as you can. Enter the Pipe to your right and what out for the two Spikes as they can become a problem. Hit the ? Switch while avoiding the Spike Balls thrown at you and get the Star Coin and exit the room through the pipe.
- Star Coin 2: To get the second Star Coin, hit the brick block to the far left to make a vine appear. Climb the vine to reach a secret area with a platform. Collect all the coins along the way until you come across a POW Block. Grab the POW Block and use it to lower a hoard of coins as well as the Star Coin down.
- Star Coin 3: The final Star Coin is in a room only accessiable with Mini Mario. Go into the Pipe right after the section infested with Spikes and go in to get a Mini Mushroom. Go to the tiny Pipe and remove the Barrels blocking it off and go in, get the final Star Coin and exit through the pipe which takes you to the level's end.
