Old Indian legend has it that Blue Mountain Beach got its name from the blue haze you would see at dawn on the hills. The blankets of the blue wildflower Lupine caused the haze, which to the Indians looked like blue mountains on the beach.
Blue Mountain Beach has remained a virtually unspoiled area on 30-A until this day. There is the mysterious Draper Lake, with its large, expansive body of water but with no public access to it. Then there are Alligator Lake and Big Red Fish Lakes, two other smaller dune lakes in the area. You can see lily pads and marsh amongst the windswept oak and pine trees, but probably no alligators or big red fish as the names imply.
Blue Mountain Beach is also the home of a bicycle shop and 30-A’s only health food store and cafe. There are just a few other commercial businesses in this area and the few permanent residents that live here, prefer it that way.
