According to my map a chest in Skyloft has been unlocked, but I can't get to it. It is on the circled island:

To be able to get the chest that shows at the circled location, you'll need the Clawshots. Head toward the entrance of the Waterfall Cave. To your left, you should see a floating island just above you with some vines hanging on the side. Use the Clawshots on the vines to grab it and climb up on. Keep climbing until you reach the highest point, the island with the waterfall. You can reach the chest then by jumping to the island that has it.

That tiny island is part of Skyloft, and the dismounting of Loftwings works differently there than in the rest of the sky. Trying to zoom over it and diving exactly on it will always result in you landing on the side of the lake.

I have not reached that part of the game yet, but it would seem it's the island that's a good bit high. Since there are vines coming down from it, I would think that it would be possible to clawshot the vine and be pulled up there as it was possible in Twilight Princess. I however don't know if it's possible in this game, nor when exactly you get the clawshots, but my guess is that is the way to glory.

All landing spots on Skyloft are pre-defined, trying to land there will only place you near the one-eyed bird statue. – CyberSkull Nov 30 '11 at 0:51

You will need the Clawshots to get the chest. They will be given to you as the Lanayru Silent Realm gift ;)

Once you have them, go to the area near the Waterfall Cave entrance, and look up. There is a tiny island with some vines hanging. You can use the Clawshot to grab the vines. From there look around again. There are some vines on the Waterfall island that you can grab with the Clawshot. Go up there and then you can jump off and skydive to the island with the chest. The Waterfall island has some other uses as well.
