Life's a Beach is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by fellow Grove Street Families member and aspiring rapper OG Loc from the Burger Shot he works for at the Marina neighbourhood of Los Santos, San Andreas

Note: This mission can only be started from between 20:00 and 06:00.


Carl recently helped out OG Loc by taking out a Vagos gang member who "disrespected" him in the joint. Now in a technical job at a Burger Shot, Loc is planning on putting together a house party for his album release, but he needs a sound system to pump out his tunes. It seems that a beach party is going down in the nearby Santa Maria Beach and it so happens that they have a sound system in the back of a Pony van.

Carl goes to the party and meets up with the DJ, but in order to get to the sound system, he is challenged to a dance battle, requiring the player score a minimum of 2500 points to pass. Once Carl has successfully passed the challenge, the DJ invites Carl into her van, which she refers as her "office". Given the opportunity, Carl steals the van, throwing the DJ out and prompting the party goers to pull out machine pistols and fire upon the van, with two of them pursuing the van in two cars. In the ensuing chaos, the player must take the van to a garage in Commerce, completing the mission.


The reward for completing this mission is an increase in respect and the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes is unlocked.

  • The mission's name is a reference to the saying life's a bitch.
  • The music playing during the opening cutscene is the same as in Manhunt 2, at the movie theatre during the mission Safehouse.
  • Anyone at the party wields SMGs. They can be obtained by killing them but that will lead to mission failure. They won't attack the player though.
