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. What they actually saw were hills covered with Blue Lupine flowers rising mountain-like above the flat shoreline that flanked it on both sides. The English translation of the name “Blue Mountain Beach” remains to this day!
It is appropriate that a large retail-shopping complex on this spot is named High Point at Blue Mountain Beach and it is now listed for sale. The building at 2217 W County Highway 30A encompasses 56,192 square feet and has 215 linear feet of frontage directly on 30A. If you’ve ever traveled down this lovely route you have definitely seen this building. The building has a cheerful yellow exterior and a dark green metal roof completed in an Old Florida architectural style that is quite noticeable. It has Location with a capital “L” because it sits right at the juncture of this famous county road on the big wide curve in Blue Mountain Beach. You can’t miss it!
