Destin, FL Open: 7 Days a Week 

What is Crab Island?

Crab Island is a sandbar that is located just North of the Marler Bridge in Destin, FL. Crab Island started to gain in popularity as boaters used the area to anchor their boats to catch some rays and wade on the sandbar. Now Crab Island has erupted into a popular social scene where locals and tourists congregate for fun and sun. Crab Island is just minutes from the Destin Harbor. Anyone who has been to Crab Island has seen the vast array of marine life. From dolphins to seabirds, friendly animal encounters at Crab Island Destin FL are commonplace.

So, why is it called Crab Island? Before a hurricane covered the once tiny island in emerald waters, Crab Island was a small plot of land shaped like… you guessed it… a CRAB! Along with the thousands of tiny crabs found on the floor of the sandbar, it’s easy to see why it is called Crab Island!
