Crab Island

Crab Island is part beach, part swimming pool, and part tailgate party. It's truly an experience you will rarely find anywhere outside of Destin, and something you should try.

Access by Boat

The only way to reach Crab Island is via boat. If you don't own a boat, you can rent a pontoon boat from a number of rental properties around Destin.  Get one for the day, fill it with beer and food until it nearly sinks, grab a dozen friends and drop anchor at Crab Island. You'll spend the day walking around in beautiful waist-deep water, eating, drinking, listening to music and enjoying the local flavor.

Adult Activities

The Southwest side of Crab Island is where you will find the adult scene that includes loud music, food, beer, water volleyball and more. Caution: Crab Island is a party ground, so you need to be careful, be responsible and take it with a grain of salt. Have fun, but don't get too wild.

Kids Activities

Crab Island is always fun and the inflatable obstacle course (small fee) is a great attraction for the kids. The water is shallow enough to stand on. You can purchase ice cream, food and drinks on the island.
