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.

Sure miss this place many good memories my Dad and older brothers worked on building the STP nuclear plant then we moved but Matagorda sure was fun

I really don't understand why you can't have bottles on the beach. Oyster shells cut your feet, cans rust and cut your feet, you go to the beach to look for beach glass... I know, beach glass has gone through a rolling process in the waves to smooth the edges..... Have you ever tried to break a bottle on the sand.... All the beer commercials, cans & bottles, on the beach.... Anyway, great picture!!

No glass bottles allowed on the beach !

Lol this is priceless

Ticket her....anyone else would have been.

The one on the right is a dumbass.
