Carmen Sandiego Wiki

The Isle of V.I.L.E. was home to V.I.L.E. Academy which also served as V.I.L.E.'s headquarters, and for most of Carmen Sandiego's life, her home.

The island was evacuated and destroyed by the V.I.L.E. Faculty following confirmation that Carmen Sandiego and Shadowsan had allied themselves with the secret police force, A.C.M.E..


The Isle of V.I.L.E. was located somewhere near the Canary Islands, the autonomous archipelago of islands off the coast of Morocco governed by Spain. However, V.I.L.E. had private ownership of the island and had implemented several electronic cloaking devices that rendered the island undetectable by GPS. Nevertheless, wireless communication was still possible, although it was forbidden to be used on the island for security reasons. Unauthorized communications devices were typically confiscated once on the island.

In a continuity error, when Chase Devineaux was planning to inspect V.I.L.E. Island in Season 2 and located it on a map, it was shown to be in the Indian Ocean, on the opposite side of Africa from the Canary Islands.

The only means of access to the island was via boat or helicopter.
