Beach, Bay & River

From the beach to the bay and everything in between, Matagorda offers plenty of attractions to make your stay memorable. Matagorda has over 50 miles of beautiful beach with 23 miles accessible by vehicle. Stop at one of the local shops in town to get your beach permit, and you're ready to enjoy the sand and the waves. If you're looking for the best fishing on the Texas coast, you've come to the right place! Fish the surf, take your boat out for some bay or offshore fishing, or choose a property to fish right off your private pier.
