The Floating Islands are composed of many hovering islands that are levitated by the powerful updraft of the massive volcano below. In The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, it is the second to last location where Spyro and Cynder must make their way through and open the gate by lighting torches that are place around the islands. They will also have to fight a troll and a couple more enemies until they finally reach a draft of air which will take them up to the final battleground, Malefor's Lair.
Upon arriving at the Floating Islands, Cynder was enchanted at how beautiful it was. Spyro, unfazed, noticed the tower that laid before them and pointed out that the tower lead to Malefor's Lair, only to earn a response from Cynder who thanked him for ruining the peaceful moment. The two dragons proceeded to light the torches around the islands, battle several last enemies, before finally flying towards Malefor's Lair for the final battle to save the world.
- The Floating Islands greatly resemble Dream Weavers from the first Spyro the Dragon game, and Skylands, a world and the main setting of the Skylanders series.
- The origin of the Floating Islands is unknown, but the architecture is similar to Warfang is evident on several islands giving the impression that they have simply been ripped out of the ground and raised through some form of dark magic conjured by Malefor when he suspended the Dragon Temple above the land before being held in place by the updraft of the volcano.
