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.

For those of us that have an all wheel drive mid size suv. Where would be the best place to set up for beach play for kids? We come out several times every year but recently traded in our truck so no 4×4 this year...

Has the entrance to the public beach access been plowed so you can actually get your car on the beach? The last few times we have tried (we do not have four wheel drive) the sand was too deep to even get our car on the beach thru the public entrance.
