Vice City mainland. The place is perfect mixture of affluent, highly developed financial areas like Downtown and rundown, poor ghettos like Little Havana and Little Haiti. 

I like Vice Beach too, but I prefer the mainland over the beach.

I actually liked Starfish island the most mainly because the Vercetti Estate is located here being the major attraction of the island , so in a sense the whole island felt like my turf, it felt like my own private island lol. Also the island is beautiful with the mansions and swimming pools.

Vice City Beach for me. I still love driving around the ocean view hotel at night. I always save there as well instead of the vercetti state.

 Ocean View Hotel was my first safe house in GTA so it's pretty nostalgic to me ,there's nothing quite like saving in there with "La Vida es Una Lenteja" playing in the background

Vice City Beach because it always makes me think of Scarface and the famous "chainsaw" scene. Shout out to Starfish Island too. If I was retired in the GTA universe I could totally see myself buying a house there and being a regular at Leaf Links.

Not to mention the Malibu Club which is inspired in the Scarface Babylon Club. But i prefer the Mainland due to its variety, ghetto,Docks, downtown, airport, Vice beach is just hotels and beach.

main and the beach parts..ocean drive and all, to me the boring part is the film studio on Prawn island..there just nothing to do except for taking revenue from the studio..and starfish island except for the mansion..and downtown..but i do taxiing on main land where those fckin haitians are and it gives way more than on the right side land..

Vice City Beach.

 

It's more atmospheric, and has some kind of warm vibe that Vice City Mainland lacks.

Beach, breathes the Miami experience and it just looks neater. Mainland has too many slums (Havana and Haiti) and the aiport feels oversized.

For me it's most definitely the first island for a multitude of reasons; firstly the nostalgia of hopping in the Admiral and driving down Ocean Beach while Billie Jean plays and taking in all the sights of Ocean Beach at night - the traffic, peds, lights, general atmosphere and ambience, the music playing in Ocean View Hotel, the introductory cutscene and so forth. Secondly I feel it's just generally designed considerably better than the mainland and that the mainland itself is too diverse, the first island flows well with a similar vibe of affluence and is somewhat immersive as it projects the upscale Miami area it was meant to represent. Cut to the mainland and you go from bustling downtown metropolis to Haitian/Cuban slums to the docks/airport area in what, thirty seconds on a bike? It's an odd change and definitely gives the impression the second island was slapped up rather quickly and from a design perspective feels like they basically just stuck the main road up and built around it. It's not that the areas themselves are inherently bad as they're for the most part decently designed and definitely give the feeling Rockstar intended them to have, but the abrupt transitions from one zone to another make it less immersive. The mainland also has an abundance of dead areas such as the space behind Cam's/Sunshine autos, the entire empty strip from the Stadium down to the Junkyard and the random backlots or fields placed pretty much everywhere. Even the stadium area feels like it was simply tacked onto the map and not a forethought which is kinda justified by looking at the beta map at Sunshine Auto's which lacks the stadium.

Hmmm nice bike

The first island, Vice Beach. It's noticeably more detailed and laid out much better than the west island/mainland. Like angeldust said, it feels like the mainland was rushed and it's as if they realized they were less than a year from release and needed to come up with something quickly. It still had a few cool spots, but it was really not as good as the first island. The entire downtown area especially felt grey and lifeless.

It certainly was, if u look at Little haiti you can see how poorly modeled building it has. Tons of wrong UV mapping and random scaling, so sometimes Tommy is midget to doors, other times hes giant.

That whole general area has awful texturing on buildings, floor, low poly grass etc.  These two parking garages make no sense whatsoever and a good majority of the second island just feels like pointless roads, backalleys and other sh*t to add "depth" but at their core they're inherently pointless.

Vice City Beach. Sure, the beach itself is a target for criticism as a lot of 'wasted space', but I'll take the light-hearted beach over mainland's junkyard/stuff behind the stadium/airport.
