Cape May Point Beaches

(609) 884-8468

At the very tip of Cape May’s peninsula is Cape May Point, the southernmost point of New Jersey. Here is where the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet, and the home of the famed Cape May Lighthouse. “The Point” is a mellow stretch of sandy beaches that will make for a quiet, relaxing day of sun and surf.
