Gulf Beach Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A small subdivision consisting of single-family homes along Balderas Avenue, the Gulf Beach Heights neighborhood is situated on the southwest side of Pensacola. The residences toward the southern tip of the community are luxurious two-story dwellings along Water Spray Terrace, and boast picturesque views of Perdido Bay. Residents enjoy direct access to the bay via private boat docks on the edges of each property. The neighborhood can only by accessed via the intersection of Balderas Avenue with Innerarity Point Road, resulting in minimal traffic in this community that is at once secluded, yet close to area amenities.

Characterized by pristine beaches and rolling sand dunes, this popular park offers opportunities for residents to surf, swim, and search for shells.
