Maze Island is a recurring geolithic labyrinth in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Appearances and Features

The Adventure of Link

Maze Island is a rather large island in Eastern Hyrule that, as its name suggests, is a natural labyrinth. Narrow passageways formed by impassable rock walls, rivers with sparse bridges, and hidden pitfalls make travelling on this island both dangerous and time-consuming. Maze Island's single landmark is the Maze Island Palace, which Link visits during his quest to wake the sleeping Princess Zelda.

The Child from the Darunia Town can be found here on the east side of the island, while a hidden Magic Container rests in the west.

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, Maze Island can be found in the Northeastern Sea; it is initially unmarked. It contains three increasingly difficult mazes: Beginner, Normal, and Expert. Link is required to strike all the Boing Statues that appear once the maze opens to complete each level. Completing the Beginner difficulty (four Gossip Stones) gets Link a Wisdom Gem, and finishing the Normal difficulty (eight Gossip Stones) nets him a Treasure Map. Only by completing Expert (fourteen Gossip Stones) will the island relinquish its Heart Container.

There is also a Wisdom Gem inside a chest accessible by bombing a wall, as well as three Big Green Rupees hidden under the ground.
