Carrabelle invites you . . . . Relax, kick back and join in the fun!


Welcome to the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce website. Located in the Panhandle of Florida just Southwest of Tallahassee, Carrabelle is the last vestige of Old Florida on the Forgotten Coast, a haven for discriminating people who love the coastal outdoors but shy away from crowds. Three pristine rivers converge at Carrabelle and connect with the Gulf of Mexico, providing access to unstressed salt and freshwaster fishing grounds. Redfish, Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Cobia, Shrimp and Scallops: just a sample of the species that inhabit our waters.  And don't forget our world famous Apalachicola Bay Oysters!

Carrabelle's waterfront combines the authenticity of a working waterfront with the fun of recreational fishing and boating. Charter fishing is readily available. Carrabelle connects to 750,000 acres of public forest for hunting, hiking, birding, trail-riding or just enjoying the passage of eagles, deer, blue heron, osprey and black bear. White sand beaches at Carrabelle Beach, St. George Island, and Alligator Point beckon beachcombers, swimmers and snorkelers. A full-service airport provides for recreational flying as well as easy access to the area (X13).

In Carrabelle you experience "Old Florida". There are no high rise hotels and condominiums blocking your view, no four lane traffic congestion, just beautiful beaches, rich river marshes, boundless wildlife and a genuine welcoming spirit.
