"Embrace the Chaos!"

Crab Island fun Crab Island
Crab Island - Destin, Florida


Crab Island Mambo is a Way of Life, an Attitude…A Tropical Escape from Reality. It’s Good Friends for Life. It’s Trop Rock Music and Musicians playing their songs from the heart. It is Crab Island Mambo…a Destin tradition.

Crab Island Mambo is bringing the Laid Back Lifestyle of the Islands, of the Keys, and of the Emerald Coast to folks everywhere. You can live in Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Seattle, Montana or even Canada and we will take you to your “Beach” in your mind.

We do it with pictures, video’s, the monthly Crab Island Mambo Mullet Wrapper Newsletter, The Weekly Update of activities, the Destin Steve “Living and Playing in Destin” Blog, Our monthly recap of the activities we enjoyed, We do it by sponsoring and promoting Trop Rock music and musicians, and by highlighting the crazy friends we have across the world.

Crab Island is a Destin party spot in the water. We take that party and expand it to Mambo’ians around the world in these web pages. Everyone can be a Mambo’ian. There is no membership, no dues, no rules and no stinking badges!
