Prawn Island location

Prawn Island is a small island in northern Vice City.


Located between Downtown and Vice Point, the island is divided roughly in half, with the InterGlobal Films studios and some nondescript office/industrial buildings on the south side and several lavish mansions on the north. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, it is the turf of the Sharks. The name is play on the name for a crab, prawn, and the alternate name for porn, pron, due to InterGlobal Films business in the porn industry. The island had a estimated population of 66 as of 1984.[citation/verification needed]

During Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Prawn Island has several beautiful villas, but by the time of GTA: Vice City they have been abandoned, boarded up, and taken over by the Sharks. Prawn Island was the main base of the Mendez Cartel where their mansion was located, and was later abandoned upon the death of their leaders and fallen into the hands of the Sharks.


Prawn Island's design is likely inspired by Belle Isle in Miami Beach, but may also be inspired by the island municipalities of Bay Harbor Islands and North Bay Village in Miami Dade County.
