"Beaches, sunshine, surf, frequent devastating natural disasters... Chumash prides itself on its small-town community feel, if your small town was full of designer boutiques and multimillion-dollar oceanfront mansions. Where the cool celebrities live..."
GTAV digital manual

Chumash is a coastal town less than a mile northwest of Los Santos, San Andreas along the coast. The town strongly resembles the beach town of Paradise Cove in Malibu, California. It is bordered by Pacific Bluffs to the south.

Character

Chumash is located just along the Western Highway, and is relatively close to the city of Los Santos. Chumash is described as the "land of beach hipsters" by Dave Norton, and that "beards are in fashion". It is implied that the town has a large Central Asian immigrant population; Tahir Javan is one notable example.

Chumash is somewhat wealthy and above middle class, as indicated by the large houses and the Chumash Plaza, a shopping centre with many different brands. It is also supposedly where all the "cool celebrities" live.

Chumash, like neighbouring Pacific Bluffs, is located on a strip of land between the Tongva Valley and the beach. Chumash mostly consists of houses, except for the famous dock and a few convenience stores. Chumash mostly sits on top of sand rather than soil.

Chumash, for some reason, has a large amount of convenience stores, mostly 24/7. In fact, it is the area in the map with the most number of convenience stores.

Events of GTA V

Chumash is one of the main settings during the mission By The Book. In Chumash, Dave Norton and Michael De Santa overwatch a party with a sniper rifle, looking for Azerbaijani terrorist Tahir Javan.

It's also the place where Timm's random event can be found.

Trivia

  • The name of the area likely comes from a tribe of Native American people who once inhabited the central and southern coastal regions of California, including Malibu. The word "Malibu" is also of Chumash origin.
  • Signs at the borders of Chumash give the city's motto: "Where the surf sounds loudly." At times, Police Cruisers lurk behind the signs as part of a speed trap.
  • In the screenshot of Chumash (seen above) there appears to be an axis in the beach house on the very left. This is possibly a mistake made by Rockstar as they forgot to remove the axis before taking the screenshot.
    • The beach depicted in the picture has a lot more people in it than in-game.
