Pensacola Bay is an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, is located between Escambia County to the north and Santa Rosa County to the south, and gets its name from the city of Pensacola, Florida. The Pensacola Bay is formed by the Fairpoint Peninsula of Gulf Breeze, FL, and the barrier island of Santa Rosa. The Pensacola Bay Bridge, also known as the 3 Mile Bridge, crosses the Bay connecting Pensacola to Gulf Breeze on the western end of the peninsula.
The Pensacola Pass connects the Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. The Pass provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico from Pensacola Bay. This makes it easy to enjoy fun and fishing in the Gulf, and also provides easy access to Pensacola Beach without dealing with the traffic. If you are looking for a waterfront home near the beach, Pensacola Bay is a great option.
If proximity to the beach isn't what you’re looking for, Pensacola Bay also connects to Escambia Bay, Blackwater Bay, East Bay, Santa Rosa Sound, and four rivers: Escambia, Blackwater, Yellow, and East River. This waterway system encompasses 144 square miles and is the fourth largest estuarine system in Florida. The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway runs through a section of the system, providing easy access between Gulf Shores, AL, and Destin, FL. These areas are perfect for skiing, tubing, riding wave runners and seadoos, or inland fishing.

The next great place to look for waterfront homes for sale in Pensacola is on the Santa Rosa Sound.

The northern shore consists of the Fairpoint Peninsula in Gulf Breeze and portions of the mainland in Santa Rosa County. It is bordered to the south by Santa Rosa Island, separating it from the Gulf of Mexico.
Similar to the Pensacola Bay Bridge, The Bob Sykes bridge crosses from Gulf Breeze to Pensacola Beach. A $1 toll is required to enter Pensacola Beach, but passes are available, and the toll system has recently been computerized for convenience. Owning a home on the Santa Rosa Sound has many advantages. Due to the fact the Sound's water is predominantly calm, it is excellent for boating, sailing, and using personal watercraft.
