Best Swimming in Austin

Trying to beat this crazy summer heat but don’t yet own your own luxury oasis by Masters Touch Custom Homes? Well, you can still venture out and find the perfect respite to cool off! Here are some of our favorite swimming spots. Did you ever drive south on Mopac and notice the plethora of cars parked along the 360 Southbound exit in the summer? Those people take a hidden trail to a 1/2 mile hike that leads to Bull Creek. Though there isn’t much room to sit along the side and it’s often crowded, this is a remote, gorgeous creek with rocky falls that you can jump off of when the water is high. Be careful because the rushing water can pull you under when it’s rushing strong after a good rain. In a drought, this is just a dry creek so enjoy it while you can. This swim spot is for the adventurous type.

Krause Springs is a secret, beautiful swimming hole located up hwy 71 near Spicewood. It’s 6$ to enter the swimming area so plan to spend an afternoon here and pack a lunch because it’s remote! Opey’s BBQ is nearby if you get hungry and don’t have time to picnic. Surrounded by unique rock formations, a waterfall and beautiful cypress trees, this swimming hole is a wonderful rejuvenating feast for the senses! Everyone knows about Barton Springs because it’s an Austin favorite for swimming. This spring fed swim-spot is right downtown and so refreshingly cool. Bring a blanket and lay along the sloping bank with friends and enjoy people and dog watching if you can’t bear the cool waters!

Finally, there is another Austin, adults-only swim area…that is clothing optional. Hippy Hollow is a swim area in northwest Austin on Lake Travis. The fee is $15 and as you might expect, most visitors are in the buff so don’t go unless you’re prepared for the view. If you’re not into nude swimming holes then you might want to try a more family-friendly venue and grab a stand-up paddle board or kayak at the docks on Ladybird Lake. Just paddle a bit and dive on in! Austin is hot but there’s plenty of refreshing fun to be had
