The coastal dune top village of Blue Mountain Beach boasts award-winning beaches with the highest elevation above the entire Gulf of Mexico. Hundreds of years ago, it got its name from Spanish explorers mapping the gulf coast from far offshore to avoid being attacked by Native Americans. They noticed what they thought was a “blue mountain” that rose high above the “beach” on each side and gave it this name. These explorers were actually seeing the tall towering hills along the shoreline, which were covered with indigenous Blue Lupine flowers. These forested hills rise above the gulf and wrap around a rare precious coastal dune lake. Lakes of this kind are a true natural treasure found hardly anywhere else in the world. Besides here along Scenic 30A, they are only found in Madagascar, New Zealand, Australia, and the state of Oregon. Creek-like tributaries across the sugary dunes connect artisan spring-fed waters from the lake to the salted gulf. Ongoing tidal action between the two creates a magical exotic mix creating a natural habitat for abundant wildlife, fish, and waterfowl.
This special little residential hamlet is quite enchanting, with a few locally owned restaurants, friendly bars, a bakery, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, some specialty shops, and local art galleries. The oldest health food store in Walton County, called For the Health of It, features organic produce, a juice bar, local honey, vitamins, CBD oils, Homeopathic remedies, scented soaps, and massage therapy. This locale is also near other coastal villages like Santa Rosa Beach and Seaside, featuring restaurants, beach bars, fashion boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries, amphitheater concerts, and fun seasonal festivals.
The open living, dining, and kitchen area includes multiple windows accentuating a spacious sunny look. Rustic beamed ceilings in the living area and parchment-toned tile flooring flow throughout.
