Beaches

Whale, Hello There!

Cape May County’s beautiful beaches have been enticing visitors to the Jersey Cape for centuries. More than 30 miles of white sand connect our resort communities from Ocean City to Cape May, which are ranked among the top in New Jersey and the nation year after year. Though they all share the beautiful Atlantic Coastline, each municipality’s beach is unique and memorable in its own way. Whether you enjoy simply lying in the sun or hitting the water with a surfboard, boogie board or paddleboard, you’ll love all our beaches have to offer.
