The official currency of Anguilla is the Eastern Caribbean dollar.  U. S. dollars are accepted almost anywhere on Anguilla, and usually will be listed as prices, but it’s a good idea to exchange some cash just in case.  Banks on the island will give you the best exchange rate, but some hotels will also exchange USD to Eastern Caribbean in a pinch.


There are several banks on the island of Anguilla:  National Bank of Anguilla, Caribbean Commercial Bank, and Scotia Bank.  ATMs can be found in each of these and in grocery stores and gas stations

Electrical outlets are the same as in the U. S., 110 AC.
