With native blue lupine flowers (the “blue”) and some of the highest dunes on the Gulf Coast (the “mountain”), Blue Mountain Beach stands out along the South Walton coastline with its own naturally laid-back style.
Accommodations here range from lavish homes to ’60s-era beach cottages, but it’s the outdoor adventures like hiking through cypress swamps and pine groves in Point Washington State Forest or biking the Timpoochee Trail that will stand out in your beach vacation memories.
