Maretime Bay is a seaside town in Equestria inhabited by Earth ponies. It is the residence of Sunny Starscout, Argyle Starshine, Hitch Trailblazer, Phyllis Cloverleaf and Sprout. It is first introduced in My Little Pony: A New Generation, as the hometown of Sunny, the film's protagonist.

Development

The town's name is likely a portmanteau of "mare" and "maritime".

Concept artists for My Little Pony: A New Generation have stated that Maretime Bay's design evolved from that of Ponyville,[1] the main setting of most of Generation 4.

Infrastructure and places

Buildings of Maretime Bay

Maretime Bay is a small town with relatively basic architecture and technology compared to Zephyr Heights. The center of the town is characterized by dense, modern low-rise buildings and non-vehicular streets, and is serviced by a tram line. The lighthouse in which Sunny lives is located some distance away.

Canterlogic factory

Canterlogic factory

Canterlogic is a company with a factory owned by Phyllis Cloverleaf, located on a hill behind the town center. In My Little Pony: A New Generation, the factory produces anti-pegasus and anti-unicorn contraptions, and Phyllis states that Canterlogic products have been keeping earth ponies safe and stylish for 20 moons. However, by the time of My Little Pony: Tell Your Tale, the factory has become somehat dilapidated, and may have been abandoned as a result of the reunification of pony kinds.

Lighthouse

Lighthouse

The lighthouse where Sunny and Argyle reside is located on a peninsula without any other buildings, and is visible from the "Welcome to Maretime Bay" sign marking the edge of town. The lighthouse is seemingly out of operation, as evidenced by the lack of nearby port facilities and sea-based transport. At the end of My Little Pony: A New Generation, the lighthouse is destroyed by Sprout's war machine, but is rebuilt by the start of My Little Pony: Make Your Mark.
