Blue Moutain Beach, FL
First, a little background, boasting the highest elevation point along the Emerald Coast at 64 feet, Blue Mountain Beach, FL is located midway between Flamingo Village and Rosemary Beach, FL on Scenic Hwy 30A.
So how did Blue Mountain Beach get its name? Well, legend tells us the first explorers to the area may have mistaken the high sand dunes as mountains after months at sea. While the explorers may have been slightly delirious when they dubbed the area as mountainous, they did at least get the beach part right. Beautifully adorned with blue lupine flowers at the time, long time locals give sight to a time with entire dune landscapes covered in blue. Still, to this day, the blue lupine’s can be seen between homes and in the protected areas of Blue Mountain Beach.
No doubt one of the most publicly docile areas along 30A, Blue Mountain Beach is perhaps the best place for the adventurer to explore the wildlife on the Emerald Coast. Hosting three rare coastal dune lakes, Little Redfish Lake, Big Redfish Lake, and Draper Lake, Blue Mountain Beach is the perfect location for the outdoor enthusiast, kayaker, fisher, and Paddle boarder.
Settled mostly with private residences nestled in the greenery of South Walton’s natural surroundings, Blue Mountain Beach is also home to a few funky small businesses that make the lifestyle of Blue Mountain Beach all the more memorable. From the local eatery of Stinky’s Fish Camp that offers locally caught and prepared cuisine to the world-renowned Justin Gaffrey art Studio.
