Santa Costa is a fictional suburb of San Francisco that served as the location of Gail Altman's home.

In 2000, the Halliwell sisters, Prue, Piper and Phoebe travelled to Santa Costa to investigate a series of fictitious murders that Gail told them she and her friends Helen and Amanda stumbled upon.

When the sisters travel to the county, they find it suspicious that Gail and her friends are the only ones who know about the murders and begin to question the true reason Aunt Gail told them to come to Santa Costa. The real reason the girls were called to the suburb was so that Gail and her friends could strip the girls of their powers and bestow them upon the demon Cryto in exchange for youth and beauty.
