unfortunately the water is not as clean as it should be. there are some old pipes that can be a serious hazard and no warning signs or any sort of protection.

You have to hit Sunset Beach for at least one sun set! The playing of a Kate Smith's God Bless America and Taps as they lower the flag and honor an American Veteran is one great feeling. Great time for family and friends along with...More

We visit here every time in Cape May. The views are fantastic and the 2 shops have reasonably priced local beach themed apparel and souvenirs. We will be back next visit.

Great place to catch a beautiful sunset over Delaware Bay. If you're going for the sunset, place to be there a little early as a crowd of people gathers each night to watch one - parking becomes an issue. There's also a casual restaurant and...More

The beach is great to play on and find Cape May Diamonds, seashells and sea glass but not so much for swimming. No Lifeguards here. There are lifeguards at designated beaches in Cape May and Cape May Point beaches.
