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.

The surf is up on Matagorda Beach today! Beware the sand is soft and driving conditions are 4x4 only.

Clay 5mm might be a bit heavy! 🤣

Just came from there. 4×4 is not enough. You need high clearance. I have seen 4wd Suvs stuck as they bottomed out. Sand is deep.
