Clean . Had to get a beach pass for $ 6 . Expensive for a family . Wildwood doesn’t charge . The need to pay was the drawback. Can go early and then late with out pass.

We haven’t been to Cape May beaches in over 10 years. We forgot what a wonderful place this is. We vacationed here in the late 80’s early 90’s. Beaches are clean, not crowded and adequately staffed with life guards. You can rent chairs and beach...More

Beautiful beaches. Fun, simple, family atmosphere. Simple small town. No large chains. Not commercial. Unspoiled. Thursday night movies for free on the beach are the best. Added bonus is seeing dolphins swimming along shore.

Clean, and well kept. Worth the small fee. Great for the family, couples or solo time at the beach. We go every year and we are never disappointed.

Simply a wonderful clean beach!! There is a $6 daily access fee and parking is metered at 25cents for 15 minutes definitely worth it. Very deep long beach offers beach goers plenty of room to spread out relax and have fun. Mix of young, old,...More

They are all good. I usually go to the ones outside the Congress Hotel and the one down the block from the Chalfonte Hotel. These are the hotels I stay out and the beach by the hotels are very nice.

I stayed at the Chalfonte so things were provided by the hotel. I just brought a blanket down with me.
