Anguilla Economy

How big is the Anguilla economy?

Economic Overview Anguilla has few natural resources, is unsuited for agriculture, and the economy depends heavily on luxury tourism, offshore banking, lobster fishing, and remittances from emigrants. Increased activity in the tourism industry has spurred the growth of the construction sector contributing to economic growth. Anguillan officials have put substantial effort into developing the offshore financial sector, which is small but growing. In the medium term, prospects for the economy will depend largely on the recovery of the tourism sector and, therefore, on revived income growth in the industrialized nations as well as on favorable weather conditions.
Industries Tourism, boat building, offshore financial services

Anguilla Travel Information

What makes Anguilla a unique country to travel to?

Country Description

Anguilla is a British overseas territory in the Eastern Caribbean, part of the British West Indies. It is a small but rapidly developing island with particularly well-developed tourist facilities.


While Anguilla's crime rate is relatively low, both petty and violent crimes do occur. There has been an increase in youth gang activity, mostly limited to local village centers. There have been no known incidents involving tourists. Take common-sense precautions to ensure your personal security, such as avoiding carrying large amounts of cash or displaying expensive jewelry. You should not leave valuables unattended in hotel rooms or on the beach. Use hotel safety deposit facilities to safeguard all valuables and travel documents. Similarly, keep your lodgings locked at all times, whether you are present or away, and do not leave valuables in vehicles, even when locked.

Medical Facilities and Health Information

There is only one hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital (telephone: 264-497-2551), and a handful of clinics in Anguilla, so medical facilities are limited. Serious problems requiring extensive care or major surgery will require evacuation to the United States, often at considerable expense. It is strongly recommended that you obtain international travel insurance before undertaking any overseas travel.

Traffic Safety and Road Conditions

While in Anguilla, you may encounter road conditions that differ significantly from those in the United States. The information below is provided for general reference only.

Unlike the U.S., traffic in Anguilla moves on the left. The few roads on the island are generally poorly paved and narrow. Because of the narrow roads and lack of pullover shoulders, drivers should be alert to vehicles stopping suddenly on the roadway. While traffic generally moves at a slow pace, with the increasing number of young drivers in Anguilla, there are occasional severe accidents caused by excessive speed. Although emergency services, including tow truck service, are limited and inconsistent, local residents are often willing to provide roadside assistance. For police, fire, or ambulance services dial 911.
