Named for the blue lupine flowers that line South Walton’s most elevated coastline, Blue Mountain Beach is a beach lover’s paradise. Eclectic art galleries, beach boutiques, and locally-owned restaurants can be found around every corner in this laid-back beach community. Plus, you’ll find a diverse range of 30A vacation rentals, from luxury vacation condos at Adagio to beautiful coastal homes in neighborhoods like Highland Park.
During your stay here, there is much to see and do. Grab your camera and snap a few photos of the Gulf from the “mountains,” a point at an elevation of 65 feet. The views of the white sand and blue water will stay with you long after you leave. After you go for your morning walk along the beach, hop on your bike and cruise along down 30A’s bike path, stopping at one of the art galleries or boutiques to pick up a gift for loved ones back home.
In addition, nature lovers will feel right at home in Blue Mountain Beach. Not far from our vacation rentals are three of South Walton’s coastal dune lakes: Little Redfish Lake, Big Redfish Lake, and Draper Lake. Rent your kayaks and paddleboards (or bring them with you) and experience the beach from a new perspective. You can also take the trail entrance up to Point Washington State Forest, where you’ll find a well-preserved sanctuary for Cypress swamps, Longleaf Pine, and an abundance of wildflowers that bloom in the spring and fall.
Meanwhile, locals and visitors agree: the restaurants on 30A are unmatched. Here, you’ll find a mix of casual eateries, sweet shoppes, and fresh Gulf seafood close to your Blue Mountain Beach vacation rental. Be sure to make a visit to Blue Mountain Creamery during your trip here. These confectioners make their ice cream from scratch in addition to a handful of other treats. They’re known as 30A’s first creamery, so you know you’re in for a treat! Red Fish Taco is also a popular spot to go for authentic dishes including street tacos, pork carnitas, and shrimp tacos. Don’t forget to stop by for happy hour, too!
