General Overview

The blue lupine that covers the dunes gives Blue Mountain Beach its name. Early sailors – some of them pirates – spotted the blue lupine and named the area after it. The elevation is at its highest point along County Road 30A in Blue Mountain Beach. Blue Mountain Beach is approximately 13 miles east of Destin and 19 miles west of Panama City Beach in Northwest Florida.


Blue Mountain Beach is comprised primarily of traditional Florida cottage-style homes found largely along the beach-front Blue Mountain Road. Two of the most popular condominium projects on 30A, Adagio and Bella Vita, are found in Blue Mountain Beach whose styles are heavily influenced by the Mediterranean.


Redfish Village is located at the intersection of Scenic Highway 30A and County Highway 83 in Blue Mountain Beach. This condominium project features a modest shopping center with a bank and boutiques.

There is a public beach access at the end of County Road 83 complete with parking and bathrooms.

Blue Mountain Beach is home to Draper Lake and Big Redfish Lake, two of the 11 coastal dune lakes along the beaches of South Walton, and among the 15 found along the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. These rare brackish bodies of water are found only in Northwest Florida and remote portions of Africa and Australia.
