Hernando Beach is a distinctive, residential waterfront community on the Gulf of Mexico. Mile long canals offer tranquil waterway passage through our neighborhoods bringing nature to every door. Our community and canal systems were officially platted out of Florida’s coastal wilderness in November 1959 making this the last manmade waterfront community in Florida. Surrounded by an estuary (the second largest sea grass bed in North America) on one side and the 11,206 acre Weeki Wachee Nature Preserve/State Park on three sides, our locale is unparalleled in offering a true “Adventure Coast” experience for both residents and recreational enthusiasts. The preservation of these ecological features now known as the Nature Coast Aquatic Preserve has shaped our past and present, and will provide the framework for the future growth. As well, our community blends diverse residential, business, marine, and commercial interests along a small, but vital corridor. Recreational and retail operations bring energy and entertainment along Shoal Line Boulevard. Commercial fishing activities and the public boat ramp are collected in the north end on Calienta Street. This balance has helped maintain the coastal charm of our “old” Florida heritage while encouraging a thriving restaurant district enjoyed by all of Hernando County. Our vision for the future respects the sensitive environmental and infrastructure concerns of a coastal community and the need to integrate these principles into future plans for our neighborhood.
