Starfish Island is a large oval-shaped island at the center of Vice City's bay.
Located between southern Vice Beach and Vice City Mainland, Starfish Island a wealthy district containing lavish mansions and large estates with swimming pools, large garages and parked speed boats. There are also two specially-shaped swimming pools in the shape of a Rockstar logo and a bikini clad woman on the island in the yards of two mansions. The island has a estimated population of 98.
The Patrol Invest Group provide protection for most of the island's residents while the estate has its own gang for protection (Diaz's Gang and the Vercetti Gang). VCPD officers, however, are seen chasing the Patrol Invest Group guards.
In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the island is the only region other than the western section of Vice City that is unlocked from the very start of the game.
Starfish Island's design is likely to be inspired by the many residential islands, natural or artificial, that link Miami Beach and mainland Miami, including the Venetian Islands along the Venetian Causeway, and Palm Island, Hibiscus Island and Star Island adjoining the MacArthur Causeway.
