The waterfront community of Hernando Beach has seen some increase in activity in the last months which continued in April 2009 with three homes sold and ten homes currently under contract in the "direct access" neighborhoods of the area.
This waterfront community along the Gulf Coast of Florida is a residential boating and fishing community with most homes built along man-made canals and a few more homes built inland near the public boat ramp.
Just about an hours drive north of Tampa and about 1 1/2 hours drive west of Orlando, Hernando Beach offers affordable waterfront living with easy access to two international airports and many area attractions.
Neighborhoods in Hernando Beach are identified by their access to the Gulf of Mexico: direct and indirect access via a boatlift. Property values can be influenced by this factor.
