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. There are mile markers for the first 3 miles on the beach – these will indicate your location to EMS.

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.

Thank you to the “Tropical Maniacs of Matagorda “ foundation The palm trees that they put in and are caring for are looking good! There has been no rain since that were planted and volunteers have been helping keep them watered. Can’t wait to see them in a few years when they grow up. 
Some reflectors had been donated and put in place but someone must have needed them more and took them all. It was kinda disappointing..We hope whoever took the reflectors are getting good use of them.
If you would like to get involved with Beaches and Bay Area Beautification contact @cincodavant with @tropicalmaniac . The more involvement we can get the more we can do to Make Matagorda’s Beaches and Bay Areas Beautiful.

We were there Sunday it looks great love the palms 👍🏻

That looks wonderful! It's such an improvement.

Loved seeing them. Now I know who is responsible. Good community sense. Thank you.

Love the palms! Thank you for your hard work.

Beautiful thank you.

Now I cant swerve in between lanes....I'm just playing the first time I drove by right after they put them in they were beautiful...havent seen them since but I bet they look really good now

No worries. I’m coming down next week. I’m sure we’ll get rain every day. LOL. Thanks for the Palm love. I’ve been loving the place for about. 25 years

Cinco Davant I would love to be added to help with the beautification of our island!

What comes around, goes around. Whoever took them, it'll come back 10 fold. Other than that, they look great! ❤

Where is this location?

I swear there’s some real BOZOS out there who in the hell would say let’s steal the reflectors well never mind the same BOZOS that leave all their trash and stuff on the beach
