Kokomo Beach is a reference to "Kokomo," a song written by John Phillips, Scott McKenzie, Mike Love, and Terry Melcher and recorded by The Beach Boys in spring 1988. Its lyrics describe two lovers taking a trip to a relaxing island in the Florida Keys called Kokomo, which is said to only be seen by those of pure heart. The place referred to as "Kokomo" in the song is fictional. Although Kokomo, Indiana, Kokomo, Arkansas, Kokomo, Hawaii, and several other Kokomos do exist, the song refers to a place "off the Florida Keys." The name was later used by resorts in Sandals Cay, Jamaica, and Grassy Key, Florida.
