Anguilla Security & Health
Guests of Anguilla villas will find that the island is safe and secure. Keeping these few health and security concerns in mind, however, will help to ensure that your vacation is enjoyable and hassle-free.
Petty street crime does occur, and visitors should take certain precautions. As is true for any vacation destination, we recommend keeping your villa and your rental car locked. Don't keep any valuables in your rental car, even if it is locked. Valuables should never be left unattended at the beach. Even leaving irreplaceable items in villa is not a wise decision although safes are provided in many properties.
Do not underestimate the power of the Caribbean sun - many a traveler has had his or her vacation spoiled by painful sunburns or sunstroke. Protect yourself with sunscreen and avoid the strong midday rays. To avoid dehydration, drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages.
There are limited medical facilities available on Anguilla and most serious situations require emergency evacuation, which is very expensive. However Anguilla'sPrincess Alexandra Hospital is located in Sandy Ground and dialing 911 for emergencies will get you a quick response from the necessary emergency services.
