Because it is home to Draper, Big and Little Redfish lakes, Blue Mountain Beach FL is known for its unspoiled beauty, and understated elegance. Blue Mountain Beach was originally named by sailors who saw the high dunes, in fact the very highest point on the gulf coast, covered with the local blue lupine flower and dubbed the beach Blue Mountain. With miles of white sandy beaches and a rich history, Blue Mountain Beach rental guests enjoy a classic Florida beach community with diverse restaurants and a very popular ice cream store (be prepared to wait). This is a great place for pristine beach walks in the morning or mountain biking through the State Forest during the day. The locals call the beach access at Blue Mountain Beach "surfers” beach so if the waves are good, that's the place to be. The whole area is a favorite spot for people who enjoy the great outdoors.
