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.

Is there a route map for it?

What annual is it now? Maybe 17 or 18?

Hi...will you have another beach report any time soon? We are visiting next week and have not been able to get our SUV on the beach for at least a year. We have a four wheel drive now and are in hopes we can get on the beach next week. Thanks!

Do they still have the fireworks show after the Matagorda Lighted Boat Parade?

I remember when we went , fun !

Jason wish we could go!!
