Located in Llano County, Sunrise Beach Village is about 60 miles Northwest of Austin and is situated in the scenic recreational area of the Highland Lakes.
Isolated at the end of FM 2233, Sunrise Beach Village enjoys the advantage of an excellent highway access road without the traffic associated with most major and minor routes in the area. The location, coupled with only one access road, provides a measure of security and privacy that is lacking in many retirement and recreational communities.
The climatic conditions in the area are of great economic advantage both for local outdoor activity and for enjoyment of the beautiful Texas Hill Country by both residents and visitors. Area activities include boating, fishing, hunting, camping, golf and just plain relaxing in one of the most beautiful parts of the State.
