Blue Mountain Beach has the distinction of being the highest elevation along the Gulf of Mexico. Hundreds of years ago Spanish explorers who were mapping this part of the coast in the New World and saw “blue” colored “mountains” along a beautiful beach. They were a few miles away from the land because they had been attacked by hostile natives in southwestern Florida during their journey up the coast and did not want to get too close.
