The Eye Reefs are minor islands in The Wind Waker that are located on various areas of the Great Sea and are uninhabited by civilizations, but guard Treasure Charts leading to Special Charts. Each Reef has a set of wall-mounted cannons that can be destroyed with Link's own Cannon. When all of the cannons are destroyed, a Treasure Chest containing a Treasure Chart will appear on one of the large structures. Link must then fly using the Deku Leaf to reach the Chest.
None of the reefs' Warships and cannons appear until Link defeats Helmaroc King in Forsaken Fortress. The Eye Reefs, in particular the Three-Eye Reef, appear to be inspired by the Three-Eye Rock from The Adventure of Link. Each Reef resembles a side of a six-sided die.
Cyclops Reef is a square reef located west from the Tower of the Gods. It has one round reef in the center, hence the name. Link must destroy all the gun turrets in this reef to obtain a Treasure Chart which reveals where to find the Light Ring Chart. Surprisingly, the chart's treasure is in this very place (although Link needs to open the chart first to collect the treasure). The coordinates of this reef are D3, and it is a neighbor of Six-Eye Reef.
Located east from Headstone Island, the Two-Eye Reef features two round reefs in the center. If all the gun boats and gun turrets are destroyed, a Treasure Chart that leads to the Secret Cave Chart will appear. The coordinates of this reef are G4.
A Great Fairy (violet colored) can be found on the outskirts of the reef. A projectile is used to kill the Big Octo. Once the Octo is vanquished, the Great Fairy will appear, thanking Link by doubling his Magic Meter.
The Three-Eye Reef is yet another reef of the Great Sea, and is found west from Greatfish Isle. It is a large square reef with three round reefs in the center. Link must destroy all the Warships and wall-mounted cannons to obtain Treasure Chart #32. The coordinates of this reef are D1.
Located south from Forsaken Fortress, the Four-Eye Reef is a large square reef with four round reefs within it. Once Link defeats all the gun turrets, he will receive Treasure Chart #19. The Great Fairy Chart can also be retrieved here by using the Treasure Chart found in the Five-Eye Reef. This reef's coordinates are B1, and it is directly south of the Forsaken Fortress.
The Five-Eye Reef, located north from Outset Island, is a square reef with five smaller circular reefs within it. Link must destroy all the turrets here to receive Treasure Chart #41. A treasure chest containing 200 Rupees can also be found by using one of the Treasure Charts received in the Earth Temple. This reef's coordinates are F2.
Located at the very center of the Great Sea, the Six-Eye Reef consists of one large square reef and six smaller circular reefs within it. Eliminating all the gun turrets will make a Treasure Chart appear, which ultimately leads to the Octo Chart. The coordinates of this reef are D4, directly to the east of Cyclops Reef. A Submarine can be visited in the vicine waters, Link finds there a Piece of Heart after defeating three Moblins.
