Marinas on Lake Travis

Marinas on Lake Travis – Comparison

West Beach Marina — 17317 West Beach Road — Austin, Texas 78734 — (512) 266-2277

When considering marinas on Lake Travis it’s important to make sure the location and facilities provide good access to your slip at lower lake levels. West Beach’s position on the main channel at the end of Hudson Bend gives our members

  • Easier access than other marinas on Lake Travis (see photos below)
  • Plenty of parking, modern well-maintained docks and facilities
  • The most family-friendly and convenient marina on Lake Travis

West Beach Marina — Lake Level 670′


West Beach Marina — Lake Travis Level 644 ‘

These overhead photos illustrate West Beach Marina’s unobstructed access to deep water at all lake levels. This is a dramatic contrast with other Lake Travis marinas that have trouble keeping their docks in the water when the level recedes.

Obviously we prefer Lake Travis at the 670′ level; but there is still plenty of water for boating at 644′. Even at 623′ (only 1/3 full), Lake Travis contains 123.2 billion gallons of water — 15 times as much water as Lake Austin. We have a lot more room for boating, water skiing and wake boarding.

West Beach Marina’s location on wide-open flat terrain next to the main channel enables us to easily move our docks out into deeper water as the lake level drops. Unlike most other marinas on Lake Travis, we can retain the electrical power on our docks as we extend them outward. 

After we move the docks, our members can still drive down to the water’s edge to park, and have the same short walk to their boat slips. We keep the same dock spacing we had at the 670′ level; so there’s still plenty of room for maneuvering in and out of your slip — and easy access to the channel.

Other Marinas – Lake Travis at 644′ Above Mean Sea Level (MSL)

The photos below depict five Lake Travis marinas with the lake level at 644′ above MSL. Note the dock crowding and lack of maneuvering room compared to West Beach. At this water level, some of these have had to disconnect their docks from the shore. Their customers have a long, steep hike from the parking lot, and some need to use shuttle boats to get to their boat slips. And this only gets worse when the Lake Travis water level is down to 624′ (as it was earlier this year).

Cypress Creek Marina






West Beach Marina does not experience any of these problems. As the water level declines, we just move our docks out a little farther. The boat slips remain connected to the shore; we have electricity and water on the docks; and it’s still just a short walk from the parking area to your boat.

Our members get to spend more of their valuable time on the water — and less time and effort getting from the parking area to their boat slips. No problems parking, no waiting for a boat shuttle, no lugging your gear up and down steep terrain.

If you’re looking to switch marinas, we’ll make this easy for you:
