This navaid is not in the United States. 

It's been decommisioned and replaced with another VOR at a new airport for the city.

That city, a beach destination, is located at the south end of a small cone-shaped country.

The pictured VOR, 3.3 miles north of the old airport, was named after a nearby settlement, the spelling of which is one letter different than the city's.  That had to have caused confusion!

The convenient, but space-constrained former city-center airport was closed, and a VOR was commissioned at the new airport, which is located well to the north of the city.  That navaid is named for the city, but has a different identifier than the airport.

There's another VOR about two miles to the southeast of this one, at another airport, in the adjacent country. 

Challenging airspace!
