Welcome to Blue Mountain Beach, your personal paradise!
Arguably one of the least populated communities on Scenic Highway 30A, Blue Mountain Beach boasts unmatched splendor in its beautiful scenery and quiet elegance. According to legend, the name Blue Mountain Beach stems from the blue Lupine wildflower that blanket the pristine, “mountainous” sand dunes. Though there is no actual mountain within the community, it is said that at dawn, the Lupine flower creates a haze that makes the dunes appear as mountains.
Known for its mix of 60s-era cottages and its modern accommodations, the Blue Mountain Beach lifestyle is as simple or glamorous as your heart desires. Situated by Point Washington State Forest, this quaint beach community is an outdoors-man’s natural paradise. Whether you hike through the cypress swamps and pine groves in the state park or bike through the winding paths of the Timpoochie Trail, the natural beauty will keep you inspired.
Blue Mountain Beach is also home to three incredible lakes, each with their own beauty and thriving ecosystems. Alligator Lake and Big Red Fish Lake are two of 30A’s one-of-a-kind coastal dune lakes, while Draper Lake brings a little mystery to the area as the robust body of water has no public access points. Blue Mountain also marks the beginning of the Eastern Lake Hike/Bike Trail, which ambles through the rest of South Walton’s beach communities. To this day, Blue Mountain Beach remains low-key, and the resident’s like it that way.
