What Is Crab Island? 

If you are visiting Destin, chances are you have heard of a place called “Crab Island”. 


Crab Island is one of our area’s top attractions and has been photographed and aired on shows such as Good Morning America, published in various magazines, and featured in publications across the globe. I would venture to say that Crab Island is the main reason Boating Magazine named Destin one of the top 10 places to live and boat in the United States. 

As you cross the Destin bridge, you will witness ten to hundreds of boats anchored in the bay over the shallow sandbar. This is where locals and tourists alike anchor to spend the day swimming, snorkeling, dancing, enjoying food, volleyball and playing football. Yes....football, as well as Frisbee and Beer-Pong. Floating around, you will see obstacle courses with slides and trampolines, as well as  kayaks, yolo boards, and jet ski rentals. One of the best benefits of crab island is you can walk around in the knee-deep water and visit your friends.

Seasonally there will be multiple restaurants and snack barges selling a wide variety of food items.  Everyone will enjoy the vendors selling Ice cream, boiled peanuts, and Crab Island T-Shirts.  On special days there are live, local bands playing that gets the crowd pumped, while dancing and singing. 

Holiday weekends are "Slammed" on Crab Island! Do not wait, Book early!
