Nothing beats a day at the beach! Water was warm and clean. Lifeguards very protective. Convienent vendors along the street to quench your thirst or grab a bite. Outside shower to rinse off was a nice touch. Enjoyed very much.

We had an amazing time at the beach. The beach is clean and we had an attendant with great personality and professional demeanor. Perfect beach to relax with the entire family.

This beach was so nice and the town was so cute and I loved the older town. Highly recommend!! The water wasn’t too far to walk from the beach.

Love cape May beach! Has a little bit of everything, except a boardwalk and amusement rides. Need to go to Wildwood for that experience. Lots of other things to do and beautiful new convention hall has been built.

We spent a couple hours here and it was enjoyable however I didnt like how the section of beach we were at slopped so steeply into the ocean it made walking along the shoreline very hard to do. The sand was super soft as well...More

The beaches here are beautiful and not as crowded as many NJ beaches because there are so many miles of beach here! The bird sanctuary is lovely, with all kinds of birds and crabs skittering about on the beach. Soft, fine sand. And dolphins in...More
