Lots of parking and easy access make this a nice beach to visit. We were ther in September on a weekday so the crowds were light. Wide sandy beach with a few interesting sights to see

This refuge had well-cared-for walking paths through gorgeous fields and meadows and around fresh water lakes and ponds populated by swans and geese. As it was a rainy day, we had hundreds of acres to ourselves pretty much so the peace was palpable.

Well maintained nature trails wind through the salt ponds and marshes of Cape May Point. The fall can bring lots of migratory birds and monarch butterflies to the area. The beach is often not very crowded since there is no swimming allowed there, but a...More
