Cape May beaches are pristine. In the summer you must purchase a beach badge but off season you can go any time. They are not as large or wide as Wildwood, but in my opinion, more preferable.

Beaches wee clean however Mother Nature did not allow much time to spend on the beach. In the summer it is very nice on the beach. Need a beach tag to get onto the beach but the hotels and B&B’s provide tags

We have visited several times & always find it to be a fun trip. The displays are well done & interesting especially if you enjoy aviation history. The staff is friendly & helpful. A little out of the way but worth the trip.

Cape May is one of the most charming towns on the Jersey Shore. Their beaches are absolutely beautiful - so clean and usually not insanely crowded.

Fun, watched the polar bear plunge; rode bikes to the beach and enjoyed the sunny weather during the month of March.

This area of New Jersey is a delight. The Atlantic Ocean is all around and there are charming places to dine and spend a night in.

I had a very nice walk on the beautiful clean beach on a sunny day which made the cold disappear. Will definitely go back in the summer.

the beaches are always clean. even though you need to pay in the peak season, it was still nice in January, the cold air coming off the ocean was strong but beautiful to look at.

The beach was very clean and beautiful. Being from North Carolina we do not need tags to go on the beach, so we were kind of shock you have to buy tags to get on the beach before 5pm in New Jersey. Therefore, we walked...More

The beaches do not close in the off season. They are not guarded so you are on your own for safety.

They didn't when we were there. Not sure if it's different that late.
