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 everyone maintaining beautiful Matagorda Island🐬💙Thank you to those grating the sand, hauling the trash, and working EMS/ fire.

This breaks my heart! Met the owners and how this was a whim like joke to open and this is not a funny ending to a fantastic place! I hope they can rebuild cuz this was the bestest place😢

That’s the third restaurant on the gulf Coast of Texas to burn to the ground in just over 2 weeks. Two in Rockport and now this one.
