NOT as easy as it seems.

First uncover every hidden treasure in the game. All 24 Chocographs (see "Diggin' it") and the hidden treasures. These are found under ocean bubbles and in mountain cracks.

Ocean Bubbles:
Requires ocean Chocobo, use a dead pepper once you are at the bubbles

In a small inlet on the Southern tip of the Forgotten Continent.
On the east part of the Outer Continent, in the desert region, a peninsula juts south towards the Mist Continent. A little way South-West into the ocean from here, there is a cluster of bubbles.
Directly North or the Iifa Tree, you can see on the map that the North-East corner of the Lost Continent and the island North of the Outer Continent arc towards each other. If you imagine a hypothetical line arcing between them, go to the middle of it to find this bubble.
Inspect the foam in Quan's Dwelling, near Treno, to dive into it.
After returning from Terra, use a Dead Pepper in the exact location where Shimmering Island used to be. There are no bubbles to distinguish the location this time so this takes some trial and error.

Mountain cracks:
Requires mountain Chocobo. Some mountains have cracks, stand on these and use a dead pepper.

Once you obtain the Blue Narciss , travel to the Lost Continent and search the area in the North-East for a crack on the side of the mountain.
Once you gain access to the Forgotten Continent, go to the eastern side of the continent, North of Oeilvert. There is a small enclosed area with a tiny forest and on the side of the mountain is this crack.
Just north-west of Oeilvert, a little south of the second crack, is a mountain area with two layers to it. Facing South-East, one of the mountain sides has a thick black line down the side of it.
Go to the very north-west corner of the map and you will find a small island in the middle of the ocean. You will need a Golden Chocobo to access this crack as there are no nearby tracks or beaches, just a forest to land in. In the side of the mountain here is a crack that grants access to Chocobo's Paradise.
North of the Outer Continent is a talon-shaped island, which has a mountain with a large crack in it. This is the entrance to Mognet Central.

When all this is done, return to Chocobo Paradise and talk to the Fat Chocobo. He will give you his Tetra Master card and some scenes involving Mene and Choco will play out. After that, return to the Fat Chocobo and challenge him to a card game. Instead, he will tell you to visit all of the beaches on the world map.

There are 21 beaches to visit and now when you visit one, a symbol showing an exclamation mark on top of waves will appear above Zidane's head. Press circle when this symbol appears, then a chime will play. Once you've done this on all 21 beaches, a message stating "Watched the waves around the world and relaxed!" appears and the trophy will unlock. From then on, any time you visit a beach, pressing will replenish the party's HP and MP and remove any abnormal status effects.

The 21 beaches:

Mist Continent:

Derek Beach
Eesistern Coast
Makiki Beach
Metalark Shores
Nomarania Beach
Togull Beach
Tuhanda Shores

Outer Continent:

Banyano Shores
Dyshnose Shores
