Update Friday, March 20, 2020

Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all restaurants in Florida to shut down their dining rooms and opt for delivery or takeout instead.

The order was issued today and is effective immediately, meaning you can only get take-out and delivery at your favorite local restaurants.

That also means no alcohol consumption at restaurants. However, the order states that alcohol sales to go with food that is picked-up or delivered will be permitted and I.D. will be required for orders including alcohol.

Groceries and others are still permitted to sell alcohol, but only if it's sealed for consumption off the property.

3/27/20: Gov. Ron DeSantis is ordering that checkpoints be installed along Florida's roads to account for traveling drivers and has also suspended all new vacation rentals in Florida for the next 14 days.The public beach and public parking ordinance for Franklin County will remain in effect for the next 14 days or when the Fl governor updates his order. The public beaches are still closed on SGI & Franklin County.


Carrabelle and surrounding areas have no reported cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at this time.  We will continue to monitor this unfolding situation and CDC guidelines.  Most events and activities where groups of 10 or more gather have been either cancelled or postponed. Some attractions are also closed, check their Facebook page for status.  Our beaches are open, but please respect “social distancing” in groups less than 10 staying 6 feet apart, not hard to do on our beaches!  Most restaurants will continue to be open,  implementing to-go.  Delivery service is available in some instances.  All bars will be closed at 5 pm earlier this week (3/17) for the next 30 days, but many also have attached restaurants that will continue to be open for take-out orders. Obviously, everyone has implemented deep cleaning to help protect visitors and locals.    Updates will be posted as conditions change.  Stay safe, and stay healthy!

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.
