Crab Island

Crab Island Review

All of the sugary, white-sand beaches of Destin and the surrounding Emerald Coast garner worldwide attention, but this is the locals' favorite. Actually a sandbar in East Pass rather than an island, Crab Island draws water-lovers and boaters, who wade the sandbar or drop anchor in droves on fair-weather days, especially weekends. People are friendly, so it's a great place to make new friends, and the shallow waters are good for families. A food barge comes around the "island" seasonally. Amenities: food and drink, water sports. Best for: partiers, snorkeling, swimming.
