Emergency Information

If you have a life threatening emergency, immediately call 911 and let them know what type of emergency you have and that you are located on Matagorda Beach. Try and be very specific about your location. If you just say you are on the beach, it will be hard to find you.

Matagorda beach is a remote location especially as you head further down the beach. If you have a medical emergency at the top of the beach and need an ambulance, it will be over an hour before you get to the hospital.  It can take much longer if you are down beach. Keep this in mind before doing anything stupid or if you have a pre-existing medical condition. Also travel with an adequate first aid kit and be prepared to handle emergencies on your own for a while until help arrives.

We just visited 7/25 - 7/28, and the beach was great! We do not have a 4x4, so it was nice to drive right on the beach. We parked very close to the entrance and then backed down towards the water. No crowds was the best part!

I know this is three weeks later, but has anyone been out there recently? Has there been a lot of rain that way? Wanted to go this weekend but didn’t want to deal with mosquitoes and hardly any sand from the rain.

Had a great time this past week, no problems!!

I think I love your shirt!

like that shirt!
