As the manual for the game suggests, Vice City Beach is where Vice City's millionaires and models hang out for recreation. In-game, pedestrians in beach attire crowd the streets and roller-skaters ride on the boardwalk. The buildings in the area are of an Art Deco design, much like Miami Beach.
Tommy Vercetti's first safehouse, the Ocean View Hotel, The Pole Position Club, Lance Vance's apartment and Collar and Cuffs are located in Ocean Beach. The Malibu Club and the North Point Mall (Vice Point Mall in GTA Vice City Stories) are located in Vice Point. In Grand Theft Auto IV, Vice Point is also referenced as the location of television network X.
