Not to be confused with the Lanayru Sand Sea, the wasteland left of the Lanayru Sea during the events of Skyward Sword.

The Lanayru Sea is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

Skyward Sword

The Lanayru Sea was a treacherous ocean that had receded long before the events of Skyward Sword.[3] Due to rapid climate change, an area of the Lanayru Sea would later become the Lanayru Sand Sea,[4] and eventually Gerudo Desert.

During the events of Skyward Sword, Link is tasked to retrieve an Ancient Sea Chart in order to navigate the waters lost to time.[5]

Breath of the Wild

In Breath of the Wild, the Lanayru Sea is a body of water to the east of the Lanayru Region, south of Tingel Island. Spool Bight is located in the Lanayru Sea.
