You can also find this beach by going South of Skadi’s location. However, the beach is low in wood resources, and it is recommended that you plan if you make decide to farm flint in this location. You will want to bring one bottlecap and one metal screw to make the Stone Cutter at the beach. Doing so lets you make most of the flint tools and weapons without returning to your initial spawn point.

You can find additional Flint node locations near bodies of water in the Greylands and Swamp biome locations. Still, these locations are hazardous and are not recommended until you naturally progress there.
