Are they on my beach?

Ghost Crabs are located along the coast of tropical and subtropical areas throughout the world.  Specifically, in the USA they have been observed on the Atlantic Coast from New Jersey down through Florida, the Gulf Coast and Hawaii.  The quiet and more secluded beaches are the best for finding Ghost Crabs. There have been a variety of species of Ghost Crabs identified in these locations, but please let us know if you've spotted them in other locations and we will add them to the list.
