Overview of Matia Island

  • Matia Island State Park is a 145-acre marine park with 20,676 feet of saltwater shoreline.
  • The island is also part of the San Juan National Wildlife Refuge.
  • Five acres at Rolfe Cove, with 680 feet of public waterfront, are available to boaters as a marine park.
  • A one-mile trail goes from the campground across Matia to the south end cove. The trail loops back on the southwest side.
  • Matia was named "Isle de Mata" by Spaniard Francisco Eliza in his discovery cruise in 1791. Matia has several meanings in Spanish having to do with lush plant growth. It also means "no protection."
  • Matia is correctly pronounced Ma-TEE-ah, but is more often called May-sha by the locals.
