Cape May City Beaches, Cape May

(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Bask on the white sand and in the calm water at Cape May City Beaches. Explore the promenade on bike or surrey, which are available to rent. To spend time on the beaches, you must purchase tags from the patrols at one of the entrances or at city hall. Keep the tags handy as you move between beaches, which feature similar amenities, including lifeguards. Food and nonalcoholic drinks are allowed, so consider bringing a picnic, or pick up a hot dog from one of the snack bars.

  • Not much compares to Cape May and its beaches. Picture perfect place. Behind you are many historic homes and in front of you is the beautiful Atlantic. So much to do in Cape May, then you just can rel...  more »
  • Beaches are very clean with life guards. It is a very safe area where you can relax and your children will have fun. The down side you have to pay to go on to the beach and pay to park. 
  • Best beaches around. Clean and maintained. Not thrilled with having to pay to park and get admission to the beach but it is worth it
