Have to agree with LostIsland's comment - its all about escape.

I went to Kauai in 2000 and while there soaking up the exotica, the Tahiti Nui bar, The Bali Hai vibe et al, I needed to email something home so went into a shopping mall not far from the old Coco Palms. Got talking to a young local couple who were just married and days away from flying off to their honeymoon destination. When I asked where they were going it turned out to be Cairns in Queensland Australia. I'd just travelling halfway across the globe from the bottom end of the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, not all that far from Cairns for my Kauai escape, they were leaving Kauai for an escape in OZ. Go figure.

So, escape, Aloha shirts etc, drinks - the vibe.
