Light & Shadow features a different rendition of Vice City and the surrounding areas. The map divided into three sections: mainland Vice City, resort city Vice Beach (Miami Beach), and wetlands of El Calvero (inspired by Everglades).

In the beginning, player can only explore mainland Vice City. The bridges to Vice Beach and some islands are under renovation, while access to El Calvero is locked by officials following the rise of criminals activities there. This areas are unlocked as the story progress. If the player traverses the renovated bridges, ignores police presence, or uses other method to get to this restricted area; they will get a 4-star wanted level.
