With the summer sun above Lake Travis, it’s hard not to want to spend a day boating around the lake. The 63-mile long lake is a favorite among Central Texas and is one of the most populated of all of the Highland Lakes.
And if you’re a boat owner, the choice of where to keep your boat can be a real task when you consider the multitudes of marinas in the Lake Travis area. There are several marinas on the South Shore of Lake Travis, all of which offer different amenities, boat slips or dry stack storage options.
Whether you have a playful runabout or a sizable yacht, West Beach Marina has you covered. WBM is known for their quiet and peaceful docks, so you can rest easier knowing this is one marina that is all about the boats.
And while other marinas are having to scale back some of their amenities due to the low water levels in Lake Travis, West Beach Marina has been able to get around many of these restrictions. Because they are on the main channel of the Colorado River, maintaining the docks in this drought hasn’t been as difficult. And you’ll have a little bit more room to maneuver when you are ready to get in and get out of the water.
Security is a major amenity that is offered at West Beach Marina, which includes a gated entrance, video surveillance, 24/7 access to your boat and a night watchman to keep an eye over the facilities.
It’s also helpful to know the location in relation to your favorite spots on the lake when choosing a place to keep your boat. If you plan to visit some of the more popular destinations on Lake Travis including Starnes Island, Hatter Cove and Devil’s Cove, you might as well save on gas and keep your boat at a marina that isn’t on the far end of these spots.
Being just a short distance away from some of the best coves in Lake Travis is just one of the reasons why WBM is one of the top choices for a marina in the Lake Travis area.
