Blue Mountain Beach
Blue Mountain Beach is an idyllic destination that got its name from its high elevation of 64 feet (compared to the rest of the Gulf Coast, anyway) and from the profusion of blue lupines that once covered its hilly sand dunes. Here, you can enjoy a small-town atmosphere that embodies the best of Gulf living, all wrapped up in a picturesque setting that has the distinction of being the highest point along the Gulf Coast.
