After helping the monkey, it’ll give you 10 mushrooms, but if you continue to talk to it, it’ll mention that it can get players a better reward from the cave.

Go off and do some other things around the world, and then visit the ‘Coastal Cave’ found on the beach just northeast of the island off the west coast of Limgrave. This is also the way you’ll get to the island southwest of Limgrave, where you can use any Dragon Hearts you’ve obtained.
