MOSQUITO POINT. Mosquito Point is a cape on the eastern shore of San Antonio Bay in southwestern Calhoun County. Just offshore southwest of the point are several shell reefs. On shore, soggy mudflats with standing water provide a breeding ground for mosquitos. No roads lead to Mosquito Point, and the site is isolated. In 1985 a triangulation station was the only man-made structure on the point.
