Hernando Beach is located about 90 miles west of Orlando ( and Disney World) and just 45 miles north of Tampa Bay. But the distances seem to be shrinking as the roads are improved and the commuting time cut down. The new Sunshine Parkway links Hernando County directly to Tampa and reduces the drive time to "the city" significantly. This new roadway is contributing to the fact that Hernando County is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation.
Hernando Beach has 3 areas, North, Middle and South Hernando Beach. The North is the oldest section it's canals are deep and wide and have direct access to the Gulf. The Middle and South are on canals that are fed by Springs and does not have direct access to the Gulf. All boats have to use the boat lift. There are about 900 properties.
