Sunset Beach

Cape May, NJ

Enjoy a visit to one of the most unique coastal beaches on the entire east coast of the United States. Sunset Beach is named for its location at the foot of Sunset Blvd. At the southern tip of the state of New Jersey. This view point allows visitors to view the sunset with a 100% unobscured horizon line. Due to the atmospheric conditions caused by the interaction of sea breezes across the bay, the sunsets seen here are among the most brilliant and colorful one could ever imagine.

See the sunken concrete ship "Atlantus" and hear the legend of Cape May "Diamonds" - maybe find some for yourself.
