For the Chinese version of the level, see Big Wave Beach - Day 30 (Chinese version).

Big Wave Beach - Day 30 is the thirtieth level of Big Wave Beach in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is a Save Our Seeds level. To complete this level, the player must protect the five Guacodiles which are located in the first column. The tideline is located between the second and third column. When this level is finished for the first time, the player gets a Big Wave Beach piñata.


  • If a Fisherman Zombie hooks a Guacodile, he will make it perform its rush attack which makes it go off-screen, therefore losing the level. The player needs to plant either many plants or feed Plant Food to an Infi-nut to win this level easily.
  • Zombies will enter the lawn early in this level; however, slower in the middle waves.
  • Deep Sea Gargantuars will appear during the last ambush.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

  • Required plants:
  • Keep planting Twin Sunflowers until the ambush comes. Quickly use a Cherry Bomb and plant a Snapdragon to stop the zombies.
  • Go on planting Twin Sunflowers. When seeing a Fisherman Zombie, quickly plant an Infi-nut and feed Plant Food on it. Pay attention to zombies, especially Surfer Zombie.
  • Plant at least two Snapdragons to protect the Infi-nut's force field. Plant some Banana Launchers to stop the Deep Sea Gargantuars and Surfer Zombies. You need at least four.
  • Plant another Infi-nut and feed Plant Food on it.
  • When a Deep Sea Gargantuar comes, quickly fire three bananas as fast as you can before it throws its Imp Mermaid Zombie. It is best not to use Turbo Button.
  • Quickly destroy the Surfer Zombies if they are about to kill your Infi-nut, or the Fishermen Zombies will destroy your defense!
  • Cherry Bombs are very important in this level. Try to use it.

Strategy 2

Created by RaidingParty

This strategy allows you to complete the level without Plant Food, paid content, premium plants, or losing lawn mowers.

The goal is to get two columns of Twin Sunflowers up with a column of Magnifying Grass. This will provide enough sun to kill off the enemies. Ideally the Magnifying Grass will go in the fourth column with Twin Sunflowers on either side (the front end providing a buffer).

Quickly set up Twin Sunflowers while the first wave approaches while filling the nearby Lily Pads with Puff-shrooms. Kill the first Conehead with a Tangle Kelp just before it gets too close to the halfway area. This will trigger the first Low Tide. Kill off one side of the invading force with a Cherry Bomb and finish off or at least delay the other two rows with Puff-shroom spam until they can be dealt with using Magnifying Grass. Continue filling out your Twin Sunflower and Magnifying Grass columns, and delay on killing the zombies whenever possible.

As Surfers, Octos, and Fishermen appear, shoot them down with Magnifying Grass shots, but note that you can save on sun by using Kelp to kill them, especially the Fishermen/Octos. Plant extra Lily Pads and Sun-shrooms as well, they will provide even more sun, be used as a buffer, and can double as positions for Puff-shrooms. Use Cherry Bombs to counter Low Tide attacks and save on sun. Gargantuars can be killed quickly with Magnifying Grass shots and if they need to be delayed, use Lily Pads, Sun-shrooms, and Puff-shrooms to do so.

Strategy 3

By Mathdude314

The strategy wins!

Somewhat similar to strategy 2 but this one takes advantage of the Infi-nut in stopping Fisherman Zombies.

Define the bottom left tile to be (1, 1). Plant Twin Sunflowers on the third column. Dig up the Lily Pads that preexist. Start planting Magnifying Grass on column two. As you progress, build Twin Sunflowers to the fifth column excluding (5, 3). Use Sun Bean to get extra sun. When the Fisherman Zombie comes, plant an Infi-nut at (5, 3) and use Plant Food on it. You will have 14 Twin Sunflowers at best. Use Cherry Bombs for large groups of zombies or for Gargantuars.

Strategy 4

Created by Redhonker
This does not require premium plants
  • Required plants:
  • Plant a column of Primal Sunflowers.
  • Plant a few Primal Wall-nuts to prepare for the ambush.
  • When the low tide comes, immediately plant Primal Potato Mine, pick location to kill the zombies in rows without Primal Wall-nut.
  • In other rows, plant A.K.E.E. Try to survive without using Plant Food. You can use Cherry Bomb.
  • Reserve for Tangle Kelp to kill Fisherman Zombie, try to kill it as soon as it appears (single).
  • Stall a Deep Sea Gargantuar with Primal Wall-nuts, use Primal Potato Mine to kill the others.
  • When a group of Fisherman Zombies appear, kill one with Tangle Kelp and others with Cherry Bomb.
  • Use Plant Food on A.K.E.E. to deal with Surfer Zombie and Octo Zombie.
  • When all fails, launch the lawn mower. (I was able to survive without it most of the time)

Strategy 5

Created by Tung.jiaxing.5
This does not require premium plants
  • At the start of the level, fill up the first column with Sun-shrooms.
  • When first zombie approaches, plant a Snapdragon on the second column and continue to plant it until it has fully filled up the third column.
  • When the low tide comes, immediately plant Cherry Bomb and Infi-nut on center of the third lane with Plant Food.
  • Reserve Tangle Kelp to kill Octo Zombies as well as the Fisherman Zombies.
  • As for the remaining columns, fill them up with Infi-nut.
  • When the Gargantuar appears, use Cherry Bomb to finish it off.

===Strategy 6  (Contains gem premium content)

  • Required plants:
    • Magnifying Grass2.png
    • Ghost Pepper2.png
    • Rotobaga2.png
    • Twin Sunflower2.png
    • Lily Pad2.png
    • Cherry Bomb2.png
  • Notes
    • Deep Sea Gargantuar is not very dangerous. Shoot it to death with Magnifying Grass. Cherry Bomb and Ghost Pepper can save sun.
    • Surfer Zombie's ability is very dangerous. If you get the chance, try to kill it while it is still surfing so it does not carry its surfboard on shore. Use Cherry Bomb to kill them when they are in Low Tide and shoot it with Magnifying Grass if that is not available.
    • Octo Zombies do not appear very often in this level. Use Ghost Pepper to kill this zombie while using Magnifying Grass to free plants from its octopi.
    • Fisherman Zombies have an annoying ability but they are easy to defeat. Shoot them to death with Magnifying Grass on sight. Alternatively, you can use Ghost Pepper to deal with them.
  • Procedure
  1. Place Gold Bloom to get sun.
  2. Place Twin Sunflower in the second column.
  3. Place Lily Pad and Magnifying Grass in the third column.
  4. Kill the first few zombies with Guacodile/Magnifying Grass.
  5. Use Plant Food on Gold Bloom when you get it.
  6. Place the Rotobagas on the fourth column. This should distract Octo Zombies and Fisherman Zombies.
  7. When the first Low Tide comes, plant Cherry Bomb where it could kill the most Surfer Zombies. Kill the others with Magnifying Grass immediately and get rid of its surfboard as fast as possible.
  8. Kill Surfer Zombies with Magnifying Grass before it gets to the shore.
  9. Kill Fisherman Zombies as fast possible. They can hook the Rotobagas an infinite amount of times.
  10. Kill Octo Zombies with Ghost Pepper. Free the Rotobagas from its octopi with Magnifying Grass as soon as possible. Otherwise, Octo Zombie will trap Magnifying Grass with an octopus.
  11. Kill the first Deep Sea Gargantuar with Magnifying Grass.
  12. When the final wave comes, use Cherry Bomb to kill as many Fisherman Zombies and Buckethead Zombies. Shoot the Deep Sea Gargantuar with Magnifying Grass as fast as possible before dealing with other threats other than Fisherman Zombies.
  13. Shoot the rest of the zombies with Magnifying Grass or kill them with Ghost Pepper.

Requires no premium content.
  • Plant Moonflowers on the third column (second, third, and fourth row) with Lily Pads and stall the first zombies with Iceberg Lettuce/Stallia.
  • Plant Dusk Lobbers on the first column. If zombies threaten to overwhelm, use Grimrose to kill especially tough ones.

  • Plant Dusk Lobber on the first and last rows of the second column when you have enough sun.
  • Throughout the battle use Cherry Bomb and Plant Food carefully and tactfully. Grimrose can damage Surfboard Zombies.
  • Good luck!
