- "This is the Lanayru Sand Sea. Though it may seem implausible, I assure you that this area once featured a vast body of water. I have detected the presence of many monsters in the area, though they are a weaker variety than those found in areas to the north."

The Lanayru Sand Sea is a location from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It is a sea of sand located where a great body of water once existed in the Lanayru Desert. Link uses a boat captained by LD-301N Skipper to traverse the area, as the boat has a built-in Timeshift Stone that transforms the sand near to the boat back into water. The boat can be docked at several locations around the sea, including the Ancient Harbor, Skipper's Retreat, the Shipyard, the Pirate Stronghold, and the Sandship, which is located north of Skipper's Retreat.
Due to the similar climate and location, the Lanayru Sand Sea could be related to or be the same as the Haunted Wasteland from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Another similarity is that they both have quicksand as the majority of their land.
