Looking for Kokomo!!!

The Beach Boys sang about it, now I'm looking for it. Have you found Kokomo and where was it?

Kokomo, there is a Kokomo Beach bar in the FL Keys, (closed) also an island off Belize called Kokomo Beach along with Kokomo IN. Guess the Beach Boys would be the best one's to let us all know if they used any of these places for inspration for the song.

Then you'd be disappointed in Big Bone Lick State Park in KY and Intercourse, PA.

There's an island, very small, about 2.5 acres, in Montego Bay, Jamaica that used to be known to the locals as "Kokomo" for reasons I won't get into here. Lets just say the name relates to the 'romance' of the place.......

Folks used to paddle out to it for a little 'quiet time' away from the resorts.......

It's now owned by, and part of, the Sandals resort there and officially called "Sandals Cay".
