During our time in Destin, we did a lot of relaxing while enjoying great food and company. On our first full day, we all got together, rented two boats, and sailed out to Crab Island. Crab Island is a MUST when visiting the area. The island has been featured on Good Morning America and been published in several magazines, making it one of Destin’s top attractions!!
Crab Island used to be an actual island, but over time it slowly disappeared and now it’s just a giant sandbar within the golf.
Because this is such a large attraction, they’ve assembled different restaurants and bars that you can swim up to! Instead of eating there, we ordered 60 pieces of chicken and biscuits from a local restaurant and ate it on the boat.
There were several other boats already anchored down when we got there and even more came as the day went on. I’ve been told it can get really packed during the summertime.
After we were on the island for a couple hours, we decided to drive the boat around until we had to return it. We even spotted several dolphins!
It was a great day with friends and family with some much needed relaxation!
