Fortnite: Visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack and Crash Site without swimming explained

How to visit these three landmarks in Fortnite without swimming.

Visiting Coral Cove, Stack Shack and Crash Site location in Fortnite is one of the many challenges you can complete in Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 2.

Unlike previous challenges that see you visiting various locations on the Fortnite map, like Lockie's Lighthouse, this one has a condition - you have to visit all three locations in one match without swimming.

Completing this challenge will earn you 40,000 XP, which will help you unlock the new Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 battle pass skins.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.


How to visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack and Crash Site without swimming in Fortnite

Before we visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack and Crash site we need to discuss how you're going to reach these locations, which are all surrounded by water, without swimming.

The easiest way to complete this challenge without simming is to use one of the Choppas.

You can find them near certain Shadow Safe Houses and various locations related to the two warring spy agencies in Fortnite. If you want more information, check out our dedicated Choppa guide.

Try to get the Choppa at either Pleasant Park or The Shark. From either of these two locations you'll be able to quickly, but easily fly to the three landmarks and complete the challenge before the storm catches you.

Remember - you need to visit all three of these landmarks in one match to complete this challenge.

Now to the actual location of these locations.
