While not actually a mountain per se, Blue Mountain Beach is a relaxed laid back community offering a more secluded and quiet lifestyle than nearby Destin or Seaside. Sitting at the highest elevation (65 feet!) on the Florida’s Gulf Coast, this area offers unsurpassed views of the South Walton coastline with a wide variety of properties ranging from traditional beach cottages to upscale homes and condominiums.
Why is this area called Blue Mountain? Wild lupine flowers, purplish blue in color, cover the dunes creating a beautiful backdrop to this community. For residents and visitors alike, this area is a relaxing retreat as it offers hiking along the swamps and native landscaping at Point Washington State Forest or biking along the nearby 18-mile Timpoochee Trail. Also here are Draper Lake and Big Redfish Lake, two coastal dunal lakes along the Florida Panhandle.
Amenities in Blue Mountain Beach include unique shopping boutiques, a well loved local bakery, and several restaurants, as well as many activities at Redfish Village, a mixed use development that has private access to the beach, swimming pools, playgrounds and open space. For even more dining venues and other activities, Seaside and Seagrove are a quick bike ride away along the scenic 30A for those who want to spend the night on the town. The Retreat, an upscale community is also located here at Blue Mountain Beach.
