El Gordo Lighthouse is a small settlement in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, located along the east coast of San Andreas.


The grounds contain a house composed of Cape Cod architecture and a lighthouse on an island a few hundred feet away. It is located in Cape Catfish, Blaine County.

A Surfer and a Tractor commonly spawn behind Ursula's house. Two bicycles also spawn nearby; one is leaning up against the fence in front of Ursula's house but cannot be taken; the other spawns in the parking shed in front of the house.

A sea race starting point is located in the water right next to the lighthouse.


The house itself bears a strong resemblance to the Point Fermin Lighthouse[1] found in San Pedro, Los Angeles.

Events of Grand Theft Auto Online

The lighthouse is the drop off point during the Series A Funding finale, Trevor meets the drug buyer near the house, but turns out that the drug deal was a sting operation ran by DOA agents.

Notable Residents

  • Ursula (only known resident here)
  • Ursula's mother (deceased)


  • A stunt jump takes place in the area around the lighthouse. The player is required to jump off a cliff located on the mainland, over the water, and land perfectly on the base of the lighthouse platform to successfully complete the stunt jump. Since there is no way back to the mainland without entering the water, any vehicle used for this will be lost, unless the player switches to another character and waits long enough for the character that performed the jump to respawn in another part of the map.
  • Health pack (in the backyard of Ursula's house)



  • The lighthouse in Cape Catfish was featured in an Epsilon Program video.
  • According to Ursula, a gardener used to visit her a few times a week, but claims he fell off the cliff one day.
