The paper aims at investigating the different growth patterns of island economies withrespect to other regional (mainland) economies belonging to the same countries, payingparticular attention to resilience to the crisis period. The results of the analysis suggesthigh relevance of tourism demand and supply for islands growth and highlight the importanceof other variables (agglomeration economies and trade openness). Although all thedeterminants of growth have been strongly affected by the Great Recession, the negativeeffects on islands growth generated by the crisis seems to be smaller in the case of touristdemand, agglomeration economies and trade openness. These variables, therefore, playa key role also in the resilience processes of these regional economies.
