SAND POINT. Sand Point is a cape that separates Lavaca Bay to the north from Matagorda Bay to the south in eastern Calhoun County (at 28°34' N, 96°29' W). The nearly level terrain is surfaced by poorly drained soil over a slowly permeable subsoil. The site is occasionally inundated by wind-blown sea water. In 1985 there were no man-made dwellings on the location. Sand Point provides a habitat for a variety of water fowl and fur-bearing mammals.
