There is plenty of variety in the beaches that line the promenade in Cape May, but some of our favorites are just a short drive away. Most notable is Sunset Beach, which as the name suggests, offers wonderful beach sunsets and Cape May diamonds, bits of polished glass created by glass, sand and time Just north you’ll find Higbee Beach, another incredible option that’s secluded and dog-friendly. For a quiet option that’s right in town, head to Poverty Beach for soft, white sand and a vantage point that might even produce some dolphin sightings during the summer months. There are even a few whale and dolphin watching boats that offer up-close-and-personal encounters if you’re into that kind of thing. If your looking for the what we think is the best beach area in Cape May its the Cove. The cove is a secluded beach area that features a crescent shaped beach. Located at the end of Beach Avenue towards the lighthouse, the Cove is everything we love about a beach in Cape May. Quiet and remote you will love it!
