We headed out to Sunset Beach immediately after paying our bill at PSI. Had to park alongside the street and walk to the end. They have a parking lot off to the side with a port-a-potty if needed. I would be sure to bring chairs or a blanket. It gets crowded! The flag lowering ceremony and playing of the National... More

We visited Sunset Beach in Cape May Point NJ on 8/28/16 with my two teens along who are hard to please. I read the trip advisor reviews but it just is a place everyone should see. We were able to watch the flag lowering ceremony and it was really encouraging to see everyone on that beach face the flag and... More

Went on a night where there were no clouds in the sky, and we saw an amazing sunset. Parking is limited, get there early. Bring a chair, camera or blanket to enjoy the view. Location also plays star spangled banner before the sunset. Touching.

Sunset beach was the place. Beautiful sunset and very patriotic as they played God bless America and taps as they lowered the flag. It does pack so early is better and also cape may sea diamonds my wife found some and kept her busy for a couple hours! Very cool place!

So much to say about this place. It's called Sunset Beach so, sure, go for the magnificent sunset that draws a crowd every evening and join in for the applause as the sun sinks below the horizon. It never fails to amaze. Come early to witness the flag ceremony that honors a veteran who gave their life in the service... More

Stopped in one evening and was amazed at the crowd gathered to watch the sun go down. Lovely flag lowering honoring veterans. The sound system is excellent and the crown respectful. The sun cooperated and the sky was lovely with a full moon behind us. Such a wonderful reminder of the value of simple things in our lives. We've been... More

Beautiful spot. Great place to take some amazing photos of the sunset. We brought a blanket and sat right on the beach however it got very crowded very fast I would say get there early. At one point the tide came up and a bunch of little fish came up to the surface. Very interesting to see. Would love go... More

Awesome little beach! No lifeguard but people are friendly, it's rarely crowded and a couple nice shops, a food stand and access to public restrooms if needed. Parking can be tough but really worth it!
