Day Visit

     Although rentals are only available April through October, day visitors are welcome, and frequent, throughout the entire year. Matoaka offers public access to a clean private beach, with beach access available from sun-up to sun-down for a nominal fee. Matoaka is a great place to slip off for the day and visit the beach where beach goers can enjoy combing the beach for fossils, sun bathing, swimming, boating, fishing, and relaxation. Located on the famous Calvert Cliffs, Matoaka has been written up for years in reputable publications for its extraordinary output of Choptank Formation fossils such as Sharks Teeth, Whale Material, and Mollusks. Additionally, the beach is wide and sandy, perfect for relaxing under an umbrella with the kids safely wading in the shallow waters of the Chesapeake.
