Welcome to Matagorda


There are 23 miles of lonely white-sand beaches out here. In Matagorda buy a $10 permit at Stanley's Market or CJ's One Stop, and then drive out onto the beach and stake your claim. Note that the beach is legally a state highway with a speed limit of 20mph, and all laws still apply. If you're not in a 4x4, you'll do better to hike in.
