Sargent is a small community located on the southeast Gulf coast of Texas. It's known for its' fishing, boating and beautiful beach. The population is approximately 500 permanent residents, but swells to high as 5,000 on weekends, especially holiday weekends. The village of Sargent is about five miles northwest of the Gulf of Mexico in Matagorda County. The town of Bay City is about 24 miles away. With its' ideal location near the Gulf, East Matagorda Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway and Caney Creek, Sargent is home to many commercial fisherman and shrimpers. The waterfront in Sargent is lined with homes, some dating to the 1950s and 1960s. Others are new homesites. The little community of Sargent Beach is an island separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway. There is only one main road on the island and the homes have great beach access. Sargent is called one of "Texas best kept secrets." On the beach, you can relax, take leisurely walks, have a picnic, go swimming, look for seashells, or even fish from the shore. Sargent has only one motel, a few campgrounds, and shops for the necessities, including a grocery store. There are several bait camps and marinas in town and a free public boat ramp. Sargent is the perfect little getaway for a weekend, a week or longer.

Sargent Weather & Climate

The Northern Gulf Coast of Texas , near the Louisiana border, has a humid subtropical climate. This region is actually located within the Piney Woods Region of eastern Texas. It receives the most rainfall in the state - more than 48 inches annually. This is due to the warm gulf waters that carry humid air to the region, where it condenses and precipitates. The area is also prone to hurricanes, the most disastrous of which was the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 as well as Hurricane Ike in 2008. Winters are mild due to the warm gulf currents. Wintry precipitation is possible, but rare. For instance, it snowed in the area in December, 2004 - the first occurrence since 1989. This region is cited as one of the most polluted urban areas in the U.S.
