"Church, bank, gun store, bar... what more do you need to enjoy life in rural America?"
―GTA V digital manual.

Paleto Bay is a small town in the HD Universe rendition of San Andreas, and is featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Paleto Bay is located on the lush northern coast of Blaine County, San Andreas. Sitting at the base of the massive Mount Chiliad, Paleto Bay is a coastal town home to the Cluckin' Bell chicken factory, used to process chicken for all of San Andreas to enjoy. The town also has a Los Santos County Sheriff office, and the dense vegetation that grows around the area is a vast contrast of the dry and arid Sandy Shores. Paleto Bay is a good resting stop for truckers due to its large number of commodities and the fact that Route 1 runs right through the middle of town. Lester mentions in The Paleto Score that the body of water north of Paleto Bay is actually a river, not the Pacific Ocean.

According to a radio broadcast from Weazel News, the current mayor of Paleto Bay is Roy Buckley. He recently commented on worker discrimination in rural businesses.

Paleto Bay is the typical small town settlement found in rural areas across America. Paleto Bay is much more modernised than other towns in Blaine County, such as Sandy Shores. There are several chain stores that operate in Paleto Bay, like Herr Kutz Barber. In fact, the Cluckin' Bell corporation operates a large chicken processing plant in the southern end of Paleto Bay. It appears that Paleto Bay experiences far less crime than other areas in Blaine County. However, despite the friendly image portrayed, Paleto Bay is filled with corrupt local police who are known to cheat the local residents out of their money through the Blaine County Savings Bank. The local police didn't hesitate to rush to the bank when a robbery occurred.

Paleto Bay is a small rural settlement in San Andreas, with Route 1 passing through the middle of the town. In the south, there is a Go Loco Railroad train station situated behind the Cluckin' Bell chicken factory. However, it is revealed that Merryweather Security has control of the train station as well, which was seen when one of their courier trains was derailed. On the western end of the town, the Paleto Forest serves for hunters like Cletus Ewing to hunt various different wildlife. The center of Paleto Bay is where all the shopping and commerce is found. Stores such as 24/7 help provide the town revenue. The southern end of the town is dominated by the presence of a large train station and factory, along with the hills leading to Mount Chiliad. The northern end of the town includes a small peninsula along with a few tiny islands. The eastern end of Paleto is more dedicated to hard labor. A scrapyard, garage, and a small farm can be found. There's also a RON gas station.

Paleto Bay's coastal location with the Great Ocean Highway/Route 1 running through the middle of it, small town atmosphere, extreme adjacency to a coastal monolith (In visual resemblance only, Mt. Chiliad/Morro Rock ), and a large national forest (Paleto Forest/Los Padres National Forest ), and location relative to Los Santos bear similarity to the town of Morro Bay, California . However, Paleto Bay contains other elements of inland southern Californian towns such as GormanFillmoreLamont, and Somis as well as the central Californian region of Big Sur.

Places of Interest




  • Paleto Bay has similarities with other GTA San Andreas towns, such as Angel Pine for proximity to Mount Chiliad as well as a major freeway running beside it, and Bayside for being the most upper northwest location on the map. It is also similar to Palomino Creek due to the fact that both towns had a small bank in them and that they were both robbed.
  • Paleto is a Spanish slang word for redneck.
  • According to Trevor, it takes about four hours to drive from Los Santos to Paleto Bay. This is an accurate assumption, as it takes less than 8 minutes in real time to drive that distance.
  • Although the town's population is unknown, there is a slight clue on the welcome sign near to Donkey Punch Family Farm. A bullet hole covers some of the numbers. The legible numbers are 4,?06.
  • Many of the businesses in the town appear to be run down and permanently closed. The reason for this might be due to the seclusion to the rest of the map, and not having a sufficient enough economy to keep every business open.
