If you and your family are looking for something new to do or explore, then we highly recommend Crab Island. And if you happen to have a boat that you’d like to bring with you on your vacation to sail the Emerald Coast, then staying in a Boat Dock vacation rentals will have you close to the water. Destin Beach has so much to offer during the summer months that you won’t want to miss out on seeing what Crab Island is about. Let’s look at why you must visit below on your next vacation to Destin Beach.
All About Crab Island
Many of the locals love to head to Crab Island during the
year, but it’s more popular during the summer months. This island is a sandbar
located just south of the Marier Bridge that is in Destin, Florida. It is well
known to many who own a boat as it’s only accessible via a boat. If you pass
over the bridge, then you may find hundreds of boats out there with their
anchors in the water, just soaking up rays and having a good time. With the
island being only minutes away from Destin Harbor, it’s definitely a must-visit
on your next trip to the area.
Why is it called Crab Island?
For those who have never been to Crab Island, you will think
there is an island here. But we can tell you that there is no land here. What
was once a tiny island in the waters of Destin is now just a sandbar for many
to visit. It’s called Crab Island because it was a small plot of land that used
to be in a shape resembling a crab. You will also find many tiny crabs on the
floor of the sandbar and it then can be easily seen as to why it’s called Crab
Island. Besides seeing crabs in the water, you may get to see a few other sea
life animals in the water with you such as dolphins and fish.
A Perfect Day on the Water
While Crab Island has to be one of the best-known secrets to
Destin, it’s also one of the most popular spots for the locals for years. Like
many of the lakes around the country that seem to be the best spot for everyone
to hang out on their boats, this too is very popular for even the visitors to
our area. Why not spend a day or two on the water with your family and friends
and soak up the sun? If you don’t have a boat of your own, there are several
boat rental places that you can rent from for a day or two. Think of the fun
you and your family can have by floating on the water together and swimming.
How to Prepare for a Day at Crab Island
Since Crab Island is very popular especially during the warmer months, we suggest that you arrive before noon. It will take you around 10-25 minutes to get to Crab Island from the Harbor. If you forgot something back in your vacation rental or even left it at home, then don’t worry because there are several mini-store that you will find on the water that sells everything in the sun from sunscreen to food. We do suggest bringing cash to the island and there may be some vendors who offer inflatables for you and the family to enjoy. If you are looking for something a little more exciting to try while out there, then don’t worry because there are normally paddle boards and jet skis that are available to rent on the water. Just go out and have fun with everyone on the water.
While there are so many other things that you and your family can enjoy on your vacation to Destin Beach, Crab Island is just one of the fun places you can visit. If you are still looking for a Destin vacation rental for your next vacation, then give us a call today. We can’t wait to see you and your family as you come and explore Crab Island this summer!
