The Apojii Islands (ガラパス島 Garapas Island) are a small island archipelago in the Eastern Sea, as well as a village of the same name. It is one of several locations in Golden Sun: The Lost Age that become available once Felix's party sets sail on Piers' boat, and so it does not have to be visited at a predetermined point in the game.
Though the overworld map shows there to be many islands in the Apojii archipelago, only two can be visited: the northern one, which contains the village of the same name, and the southern (called Aqua Island), home to Aqua Rock. The islands rest on the edge of Gaia Falls, making it the easternmost location in Weyard. Unlike Prox, the residents of Apojii have little idea of the danger they are in.

Real World Inspirations
Geographically, the Apojii Islands are the Weyard equivalent of the Galápagos Islands. The islands' Japanese name, Garapas, is further evidence of this connection. Seemingly, the world was cut just west of South America when modifying it into a flat planet for the sake of the series' map.
Aqua Rock on the southwesternmost island is home to moai guards which are based on the moai heads of Easter Island, which in the real world is found about 3000km to the southwest of the Galapagos Islands. Aqua Rock itself would be based on the largest volcano on Easter Island called Terevaka, which actually contains a lake inside its inactive crator, which would link it to the word Aqua.
The girl running the shop mentions a place called Garapas. This is a translation error: Garapas is the Japanese name for Apojii, and is presumably derived from the name of the Galapagos Islands.
