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.

  • The beaches are wide, clean and a pleasure to visit. There is a paved walkway that you can ride bikes or walk along, with boardwalk entrances to the beaches--good public restrooms here and there...  more »
  • My wife and I recently stayed in Cape May for a couple of nights. During our stay, we walked along the beach and promenade. We also enjoyed great views of the beach and surf from our hotel courtyard.....  more »
  • Cleanest, most pristine beach in NJ. Large surf waves make for a lot of fun to jump in and splash around. We stayed in Ocean City and in Wildwood, but drove to Cape May for a couple of days because the quality of the beach and waves were just that much better than either Wildwood or Ocean City.
  • Beach is one of the best on the East coast. Lots of waves but not too deep. Lifeguards on duty. And free admission!
