How to find the Vacation Island

There would be a small area in the sea with very shallow water, on the start of summer that area would start bubbleing 1-2 days, after that, the Vacation Island would appear.

Vacation Island Geography
It would be a sandy beach, about the size of the Lunar isles(not the main island) with small tidal pools with fishes.

Vacation Island Resources

The island would have a variety of new resources.
Giant Palm Tree - A large tree with a very large canopy, providing lots of shading, it would drop logs and giant palm leaves when cut down. giant palm leaves could be used to make a few items.
Sea Shells - Used to make items.

Pine-Apple - a rare fruit, with better stats than the dragonfruit. since it's the constant we're talking about, it would be a Pine, but an apple at the same time.

Tropical Fish - Small fish that could be fished with a spear or fishing rod.

Vacation Island Crafting

To make the Vacation Island crafting station, you'd need to find 6 fragments, burried in the sand, you'd need to use a shovel to dig them out. then you'd place them and assemble them like fossils. The station would unlock a variety of summer-orientated equipment, using the various resources.
Beach Chair - when sitting on the chair, it would work as a bed roll, giving 6 sanity per second, but unlike bedrolls, you wouldn't get hungry when using, it would also cool you.
SeaShell armor - Body Slot armor providing 80% protection, would have a water protection depending on the durability, so at 100% you would have 100% water protection. Would not protect from lightning.

Giant Palm leaf sail - A sail better than the regular sail, but worse than the malbatross sail.

Giant Palm Leaf Shelter - A palm leaf shelter, similar to Shipwreck's Palm Leaf Hut, but larger and more efficient.

Island Perks and Downsides
The island would sink 1-2 days after summer's end, making permanent bases there impossible.
No smouldering on the island and less heat, that can be easily be taken care of by the giant palm trees.


Constructive feedback welcome.

That would be perfect for the summer event of some kind.

At the risk of sounding insensitive, I would never come here more than once. There already exist 2 summer sanctuaries in the oasis and caves. In the oasis there is no smoldering, a means to bypass the sandstorm by fishing (albeit tediously) you can handle the antlion's fissures at an arm's reach by either tributing or killing it and the caves do not overheat you, nor is it a fire risk. 

Your island idea is also more dangerous than you realize. Having the oasis be both a summer getaway and permanent base location, every character can deal with hounds. Tooth traps can be laid out in your permanent summer haven in the oasis.

Only a half the characters in the game can deal with hound waves safely without a houndius or catapult bastion and tooth trap fields. There's also more space to run around in provided the antlion fissures do come.

Having a non permanent holiday island that destroys everything upon sinking seems like nothing more than a novelty rather than a fully fledged feature. 

I am a big a fan as anyone when it comes to more islands being added, but i'd rather your idea of an island getaway being more than just a temporary land mass in the way you describe.
