Pensacola Beach is on Gulf Coast a barrier island in Escambia County. The island has access to the mainland Pensacola and Gulf Breeze via the Bob Sykes Bridge. The land belongs to the Federal Government by a 1947 deed which leases it to businesses and residents in renewable 99-year increments, making them long-term leaseholders through the Santa Rosa Island Authority, instead of property owners.
