Things to Do, See & Places to Eat

Blue Mountain Beach Florida is the highest elevation found along Florida’s Gulf Coast, which means it also has the best views. So why the unusual name? Well, early sailors (tell the kids it was pirates) christened it Blue Mountain after seeing its high sand dunes covered in the rare blooms of the Blue Lupine flower (which are blue). Now you can enjoy the breathtaking sunset views in Blue Mountain Beach FL from one of the many Blue Mountain Beach vacation homes or condominiums perched along the coast.

 

A small community with a neighborly feel, Blue Mountain Beach FL has a popular ice cream shop, natural foods store, bike rentals, a bakery, and delicious restaurants within walking distance. The community also features two rare coastal dune lakes and connects to nature trails in the Point Washington State Forest and the bike path along Scenic 30-A.

The vibe in Blue Mountain Beach in Florida is laid-back, relaxed and friendly. It is a quiet community that is located close to Grayton Beach, Seaside and Dune Allen Beach. Families often walk up from the beach to grab an ice cream cone or fresh fruit smoothie and the restaurants here serve some of the finest fried shrimp on Scenic 30-A. If you are looking for an old-fashioned beach escape that is not crowded, but close to everything — then Blue Mountain Beach Florida is the perfect beach escape.
