Appropriately named, Sunset Beach is well-known for the show of colors as the sun dips below the horizon. The sunset attracts a crowd, so head there well before it's time for the sun to go down to snag a spot. The beach is also famous for the flag ceremony honoring veterans that happens every night during summer. Marvin Hume, the owner of this stretch of beach property, has held this ceremony for the last 40 years. The temperature drops when the sun disappears, so bring a blanket to cozy up. You may find be lucky enough to find a "Cape May diamond," beautiful pure quartz crystals known to wash up on the beach.

We got there just as the flag lowering was completed, wish we could have witnessed that. Even with the number of people in attendance we were able to find parking. The beach is just so clean and free!... more »

It's a nice beach but we went and the sand was very rocky and not nice to walk on. The beach is a nice swimming spot, if you don't mind the sharp rocks, it has breakers to stop hard waves and are soft waves. Pros and cons of it.
