I know I need the Angler Key from the desert, but beyond that, I am stumped. I haven't even figured out how to get to the desert, much less the key.

Ulira has told me the desert is in the southeast of the island, but I can't really figure out how to get there.

I should play the game again so I can start answering your questions. :) – Jeff Mercado Mar 12 '12 at 4:39

The Desert is in the South-west corner, as is documented in this wiki article. There is a detailed article as to how exactly to get into the desert. The basic steps are:

  1. Try to find Marin. Start in Mabe Village.
  2. Head to Toronbo Shores. There after some searching you will find Marin.
  3. Head to the desert, and she will sing to the Walrus. That will cause the Walrus to move out of the way, allowing you access to the Desert.

It's important to note that for Marin to appear, you must visit Animal Village and trade for the pineapple. If you don't have it, she won't be on the beach until you do. (In fact, this post is actually kind of obtuse and needlessly vague. If I wasn't so busy I'd fix it :/) – Xkeeper Mar 13 '12 at 0:34
This is missing a lot of details - I had better luck using the linked article, even though it was also confusing. – Ash Mar 13 '12 at 15:10
Here's the big picture. The place you are looking for is on the bottom right. – Krazer Mar 21 '12 at 3:52
