When to see the red crab migration
The red crab migration and spawning is a spectacular bucket-list event that you don’t want to miss. The crabs start marching to the ocean to spawn at the start of the wet season, usually around October or November.
A month after spawning, the baby crabs emerge from the ocean and head for the forest. When baby numbers are high, this part of the migration is even more spectacular than the event that spawned it.
