Sanders Beach is a neighborhood in southwestern Pensacola, in the Maxent Tract.

In 1908, Pensacola mayor Calvin C. Goodman requested and received a donation of two blocks of waterfront from the Maxent Land Company. The parcel was developed as a public park and was eventually named for Frank Dent Sanders, a former Pensacola fireman, police chief, commissioner and mayor.
