'''Sandy Shores''' is an incorporated rural town located in [[Blaine County]], [[San Andreas]], featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. It has a population of approximately 3010, seen on a welcome sign on approach to the town.

Greetings from Sandy Shores

Sandy Shores is a small desert town located in the middle of the Grand Senora Desert in Blaine County, San Andreas.

Sandy Shores sits on the coastline of the Alamo Sea and overlooks the huge Mount Chiliad. It has a dry, arid climate, and is home to many coyotes that often get run over. It has a population of approximately 3,010, as seen on a welcome sign on the approach to the town. There is also a small landing strip, which is acquired by Trevor Philips after he defeats The Lost MC.

CharacterEdit

Supposedly once a picturesque holiday resort, Sandy Shores is a somewhat abandoned, poverty stricken, desolate town with meth labs, trailer parks, drug addicts, gang activity, prostitutes and bigoted rednecks aplenty. There is evidence of its past as a holiday destination by the decaying remains of motels and trailers by the coast of the Alamo Sea (referring to the history of the towns by the coast of Salton Sea in real life). The town possibly became a poor, run down community because of the decline of tourism caused by the increasing toxicity of the Sea, and the large influx of methamphetamine, turning its residents into addicts.

On the eastern side of Sandy Shores, there are mostly trailers and homes for the local hillbillies to dwell in. However, there are are a few businesses such as a 24/7 convenience store. On the western side of Sandy Shores, there are mostly abandoned buildings, but there is also a meth lab owned by Trevor and Chef. The south side of Sandy Shores is the Sandy Shores Airfield.

Despite being such a poor and miserable area, there are several chain businesses located around Sandy Shores, including Ammu-Nation. There is also a radio tower in the centre of town.

InfluenceEdit

Sandy Shores is based on real life Desert Shores, taking heavy inspiration from it; along with other towns in the area such as North Shore, Bombay Beach, Mecca and Salton City.
