Anguilla Electricity

Many travelers visiting the little island of Anguilla will find that plugging in their electrical appliances is less of a hassle than on many other Caribbean islands.

Almost all of Anguilla uses North American-style 110-volt power current, which is very convenient for travelers from the United States and Canada.

Power on the island is provided solely by the Anguilla Electricity Company Limited, which supplies reliable electricity at 120 volts AC on 60 cycles. If you're bringing appliances made in either the U.S. or Canada, you'll more than likely be able to plug them in with no problems. Electricity, as well as the electrical outlets, are the same as in both Canada and the United States. If you're visiting Anguilla from another country, you will probably have to purchase an adapter or transformer. Some hotels have transformers available when you arrive, but it is always a good idea to find out ahead of time.

The wattage on Anguilla may or may not be the same as in your home country, but planning ahead and purchasing the right electrical conversion equipment will ensure that you have virtually no problems plugging in your appliances.
