"You've seen the boats sailing around here with the real huge cannons, right, fry? I bet you those things have their hulls packed with treasure! Of course, if you don't have a cannon yourself there's no way you'll ever sink one of them..."

"That's where Needle Rock Isle is. Nature sure creates some odd shapes!"

The island has a very tall pillar right in the middle, as well as a switch at the top of it that can be used to shut off the flames surrounding a chest in order to get the Piece of Heart placed inside it. There is also a cave with its entrance frozen where, once inside, Link must light up six torches using the Fire Arrow to obtain 100 Rupees.

There are also three Warships in the surrounding waters. The golden ship contains a Triforce Chart which is retrieved by sinking the ship and using the Grappling Hook in the light-ring that appears. Like in other islands (such as the Crescent Moon Island), big jars on barrels can be found, although they sink when Link is too close to them.

This island is the location the Korok, Elma, chose to plant one of the Great Deku Tree's seeds.
