Blue Mountain Beach
South Walton, Florida, is home to one of CNN’s most romantic towns in America and is a top destination for weddings and honeymoons. Romance runs deep in our 16 distinct beach neighborhoods, each of which has a unique culture and...
Nestled between the sugar-white sand dunes along South Walton's beach are some of the rarest and most spectacular natural features the area has to offer: coastal dune lakes. They're found in only a few places on earth: New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar and the U.S. – and even in the same location, one coastal dune lake can vary drastically from its neighbors.
There’s no better way to get “up close and personal” with South Walton than a bike ride along the Timpoochee Trail. The approximately 18.5-mile trail, named after an influential Euchee Indian Chief, winds past dune lakes and state parks and beach access points through several charming beach neighborhoods. It’s a perfect day trip for the family, an ideal way to get some exercise, and a whole lot of fun.
