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.

  • It was a bit cold on this nice November day for swimming or lounging on the beach. However, the beaches did look beautiful.  more »
  • Beaches are bigger than ever, since i've been coming. Water is calm, shallow, warm, with waves. Great wild life in fall - especially birds.  more »
  • Do not know how it is in the summer months, but during the time we were there, it was positively lovely. Very unspoiled. We had it pretty much to ourselves.  more »

Where to stay in Cape May

Choosing where to stay on Cape May remains simple because most accommodations lie steps from Beach Avenue (which, as its name suggests, runs along the cape's stretch of sand). Even choosing your style of accommodation is uncomplicated--inns and bed and breakfasts situated inside Victorian houses encompass nearly the entire range of choices. You can opt for a cottage if you prefer self-service. Budget-wise you'll find the most options in the mid-range and higher end, but a few value-driven choices exist too. Book early if you plan to visit in summer.
