Natural beauty and relaxation go hand-in-hand in Blue Mountain Beach. This beach neighborhood draws its name from the blue lupine flowers that sway in the coastal breeze and the fact that the area is home to South Walton’s highest elevation (a mountainous 65 feet)! Hop on a bike at Big Daddy’s Bike Shop and make your way to the art gallery of South Walton’s 2005 Artist of the Year, Justin Gaffrey. Even before you enter, you’ll catch glimpses of his unique style on full display.
The South Walton sun can be warm, so be sure to cool down at Blue Mountain Creamery where handmade ice cream is a local favorite. Live music, a great happy hour and fresh Gulf seafood will greet you at Red Fish Taco, a casual restaurant across Hwy 30A in Redfish Village. From the authentic street tacos and pork carnitas to the grilled avocado and blackened shrimp tacos, your taste buds will come alive.
