Blue Mountain Beach
Author: Will Estell
This beach community was originally named for its blue lupine flowers found growing in the wild, as well as for having the highest dunes on the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast. Blue Mountain Beach is a rather laid-back area with everything from 60s-era beach cottages to modern waterfront beach mansions. However, the many adventure opportunities from hiking its cypress swamps and pine groves of Point Washington State Forest to biking the Timpoochee Trail make Blue Mountain a favorite of so many visitors.
