Neighborhood Spotlight: Blue Mountain Beach
Your guide to the quiet comforts ~ of Blue Mountain Beach, Florida
One of the westernmost neighborhoods on the Emerald Coast, Blue Mountain Beach is filled with a rarified beauty not too often seen along the Gulf. Proud to be the area’s highest peak at 64 feet, it gets its namesake from the blossom of the blue lupine flowers that encompass its rolling hills come springtime. Nestled quietly between the often more popular communities of Santa Rosa Beach and Grayton Beach, taking up in one of InvitedHome’s Blue Mountain Beach rentals means you’ll never be far from either, but just far enough from any unnecessary noise and unwanted crowds. Take a look at our guide to Blue Mountain Beach below, or if you feel like exploring, we've put together a complete list of things to do on the Emerald Coast to help your planning.
What To Do:
On The Trails
Explore the beautiful blue lupines by hiking through the hills of the neighborhood or in nearby Point Washington State Forest.
On The Beach
Escape the hustle and bustle of more crowded areas like Grayton and Destin by curling up with a good book on the secluded beach.
On The Streets
Take a bike (or golf cart) ride downtown, where you’ll find many delectable eateries, quirky galleries, and unique boutiques.
Where To Eat:
Blue Mountain Beach Creamery
Across the street from RedFish Village, Blue Mountain Beach Creamery features an assortment of delicious ice creams, sorbets, and frozen yogurts made fresh daily.
