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.

Great information!

Just curious why the city does not work on the public entry to the beach so vehicles can get in. We are staying in a house with beach access but want to drive the beach. We do not have a 4x4. We visit here twice a year and its always a toss up whether we can drive on the beach or not.

Thanks for the report

Always a great event if you are in town for Thanksgiving.
