About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Come early to grab a parking space!

Pets allowed on the beach only if you have a permit from the county!

Undoubtedly, this is one of the best beaches on the West coast of Florida. A perfect relaxing place for families or couples who want to get away from the crowds and the noise. Gorgeous views, warm white sand, and crystal clear emerald waters. Lots of sea creatures, occasionally you can see a dolphin or two. Lifeguards are on duty during the day so you may feel quite safe in the water. Simply perfect. And despite all these wonderful characteristics, Blue Mountain Beach is almost never too crowded.

Parking lot

Blue Mountain Beach has a very small paved parking lot for about fifty vehicles including spaces for the handicapped. It is located at the public entrance to the beach where you can also find a well-maintained restroom, changing room, and a rinse shower. Before you take the stairs down to the beach, you can enjoy the views from a wooden sitting area at the top of the stairs.

Quiet beach with gorgeous views

Blue Mountain Beach is unique and you will hardly find another place like this. It has perfect white sand, which is soft and not too hot to walk barefoot. It’s very clean, the beach is well-maintained and there are trash cans all around the area. The water is clear, and shallow, and so much eye-pleasing with its picturesque shades of pure emerald and turquoise. Just beautiful! There aren’t many visitors, though, and peace and quiet of this beach make it a perfect place for those who want to escape from the rush of the modern world and enjoy the pristine beauty of nature.

Rich fauna

There are dolphins, turtles, a lot of different fishes. If you’re lucky, you may find turtle nests or see crabs. You know, kids are always happy to rush after them.

Close food outlets and shopping

There are shops and beach equipment outlets right across the street. If you wish to somehow diversify your beach holidays, this is where you can acquire a snorkeling mask, or boogie board, or inflatable lounge, etc. Nearby, you will also find cafes, coffee shops, ice cream spots, and restaurants with good cuisine and adult beverages. If you are staying for a few days, there's a health food store, and an organic bakery. 

Rental services and accommodation

On the beach, there is a company offering sunbed and umbrella rental services. If you’re looking for more entertainment, you can rent paddle boards, water bikes, kayaks, and other water equipment on site.

As for residential opportunities, many condos along the surf are available for rent. Grayton State Park is only a few minutes away.
