Bajan Beauty and Queen of Soca, Alison Hinds is no stranger to Cayman. 

“I’ve been coming here for years,” she smiles, reminiscing on her various visits and bubbling with excitement at her performance at the SOS Sounds of Soca Street Dance and Pirate’s Week Celebrations on Harbour Drive on November 8th.

Alison looks forward to every opportunity to embrace the warm Cayman-brand of hospitality otherwise known as Caymankind.

Here are Alison’s top five reasons to visit Cayman.

  1. The People

"Caymanians are among the friendliest people I’ve ever met. I’ve always gotten such a wonderful reception here as an artist. There is such great appreciation of my music here."

  1. The Beaches

"No matter where you are on island, the beach is always so calm and serene. My personal favourite is Seven Mile Beach because of its location, its length and its beauty of course!"

  1. The Energy

"Whenever I perform here there is always so much positive energy. Caymanians are such expressive people and many of them have grown up on my music, which contributes to the vibe! It’s always such a positive experience here."

  1. The Diversity

"I love that there are so many different cultures and backgrounds and ethnicities in Cayman and everyone just comes together. It is one of the few places that I’ve visited that is a true melting pot."

  1. It is the best of both worlds

"When I come here, I enjoy the benefits of the Caribbean— the sea, sun, sand and island vibe— while benefiting from the proximity to Miami, the strong value of the dollar and the shopping."
