Crab Island is more than just an underwater party for watercraft owners — it’s a floating food court.

The Destin hotspot provides its energetic, water-loving visitors with a variety of restaurants to choose from to satisfy cravings for an afternoon snack or an evening meal.

The anchored restaurants serve up everything from hamburgers and wraps to ice cream and snow cones, at your convenience and at reasonable prices. The restaurants strive to sell the freshest food, with most selling some of the same items, but each having a distinguishing feature that sets it apart from the next.

And let’s not forget the mobile vendors that bus around the party area.

The vendors that travel via motorized rafts, bringing their product directly to the customer, include those that sell hot boiled peanuts, pizza, and ice cream.

Here's your guide to the underwater playground's eateries:

Wrap It Up sells wraps, burgers, hot dogs, ice, Dippin’ Dots and more. The restaurant is new to the Crab Island scene, as the owners, Zack Myers and Paul Bernier moved in on Memorial Day. Myers said that their food is “more of a healthy alternative to everyone else out here.” The restaurant, which was the fan favorite on The Log’s Facebook page, is open seven days a week, all day, weather permitting. Myers added that Wrap It Up provides “restaurant-quality food” and that they make their patties every morning before going out to Crab Island. For more information, contact 850-582-5819, or locate Wrap It Up in Destin’s Facebook page.
