Matsu dialect (Eastern Min: Mā-cū-huâ / 馬祖話) is the local dialect of Matsu Islands, Republic of China. Native speakers also call it Bàng-huâ (平話), meaning the language spoken in everyday life. It is recognised one of the statutory languages for public transport announcements in Lienchiang County, ROC.

It is a subdialect of Fuzhou dialect, Eastern Min. Matsu dialect is quite similar to Changle dialect, another subdialect of Fuzhou dialect.
