Playa del Seville is a district in south-eastern Los Santos, San Andreas. North of the area is the Los Santos Forum and East Beach. To the west, meanwhile, are the districts of Ocean Docks and Willowfield.
The district is a stronghold of the Grove Street Families, in particular the Seville Boulevard Families set. Playa del Seville is a multi-racial community, with African-Americans making up the majority of the population.
The area contains a set of housing projects, a beach, a nearby busy road, a set of lock-up garages, a basketball court, a small street with some small single-family homes and a few small businesses and stores. Despite the ominous gang activity, the area is more middle-class than Ganton and the beach is a popular tourist destination.
Events of GTA San Andreas
Playa del Seville does not feature much in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. During one mission, Carl Johnson rescues his brother Sweet and his girlfriend, from Playa del Seville (after Seville Boulevard Family members start attacking them). Other than this, Playa del Seville appears as the location of LB's garage, or the Lockup, where stolen items are kept. These include from Colonel Fuhrberger (during the mission Home Invasion) and when doing the burglary side mission.
- Playa del Seville translates to "Beach of the Seville" from Spanish.
- The beach is based on Long Beach, due to the fact it is located right next to Ocean Docks.
- There is a barber shop in the area, which could be a reference to the famous Italian opera The Barber of Seville.
