Location of the Cactuar Island, indicated by crosshair

Cactuar Island is a small island in Final Fantasy VIII. It is located south of Esthar City and just east of the Kashkabald desert. It can only be accessed by use of the Ragnarok.

The only enemies fought on the location are Cactuars and the elusive Jumbo Cactuar.

Cactuars yield a lot of AP and a small HP count, making it a good place to get AP fast. They offer little EXP, making this is a good area for low-level players. However, the Cactuars have very high evasion and will flee from battles if left too long.

It is similar to Cactus Island from Final Fantasy VII.

Jumbo Cactuar

The Jumbo Cactuar itself is not a random encounter, but appears and disappears from sight on the world map. All that is needed to fight it is to walk up to it before it vanishes again.
