Belmont Street is an east-west street in Pensacola and a prominent thoroughfare in the Belmont-De Villiers district.

Belmont Street's main western terminus is at V Street with an ultimate eastern terminus at 17th Avenue near Bayou Texar, just north of the 17th Avenue railroad trestle. However, the street is interrupted at several points:

Further west, on the other side of Bayou Chico, there is a cul-de-sac named Belmont Street that travels easterly from Wiggins Avenue for a distance equivalent to about two blocks.

Prior to the renaming of streets in 1906, East Belmont Street was known as 1st Street; West Belmont Street was known as Forbes Street.
