Experience Matagorda Beach!
From….Bay City Tourism Council / Visit Matagorda County
Matagorda Beach is a favorite place of both locals and visitors for soaking up the sun, walking along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline and gathering seashells. Travel and Leisure Magazine declared it one of the “Best Secret Beaches on Earth.” Matagorda Beach stretches about 55 miles along the Gulf of Mexico, with the last 35 miles being accessible only by boat. Beach permits are required for driving on the beach and can be purchased at the beach entrance and some area stores. The jetty walkway on the beach has long been a popular fishing spot for locals and visitors. A second jetty stretches over half a mile long and is constructed of large granite stones. There is a beachside picnic area for family mealtime without all of the sand. Tent camping is allowed. Permits are required for vehicles entering the beach and can be purchased at the beach entrance or from most local merchants. Just before entering the beach is the LCRA Matagorda Bay Nature Park, a 1,600-acre park and preserve is at the mouth of the Colorado River on the Matagorda Peninsula. This unique park and preserve is dedicated to recreation, education and preservation in the area. It also includes an RV park.
