A very different Jersey Shore than the one you see on TV

Perched at the southern tip of the popular Jersey Shore, where the Delaware Bay juts in from the Atlantic, Sunset Beach is the homey oceanfront paradise you've been dreaming of. Aptly named for the blaze of colors that grace the sky every night, a waterfront Sunset Beach vacation rental is the picture-perfect place to end your day. From frolicking in the surf to playing the back nine, Cape May is just made for taking a step back from the stress of everyday life and enjoying everything that the simple life has to offer.

Things to do

Encounter concrete ghosts of ages past

Looming just off the shore of Sunset Beach are the hulking remains of the SS Atlantus, the most famous of the twelve concrete warships built during and after WWI. Launched in December 1918, it found its final resting place in the waters off Cape May. For the best views, climb the World War II Lookout Tower, a former fire control tower that has found new life as an observation deck. The picture-perfect Cape May Lighthouse, dating from 1859, is another great alternative for watching the sun rise and set.

Activities

Uncover a diamond in the rough

You can't go to a place called Sunset Beach and not watch the sunset. During the summer months, nature's nighttime display is accompanied by fireworks and a solemn flag-lowering ceremony. Come back in the morning to watch them raise it again. Hit the greens at Cape May National Golf Club, or stick to the mini-golf if putting is more your speed. For a unique alternative to hunting for seashells, scour the shores for the famous Cape May diamonds (clear quartz pebbles that dot the beaches) and make for a one-of-a-kind keepsake.

Weather

All the tanning (without the gym and laundry)

Summer is peak season for Sunset Beach vacation rentals, when cool ocean breezes balance hot and humid days. Temperatures from June to September rise to the 80s or even 90s, making it the perfect time for bronze beauties to enjoy the welcoming waters. Winter temperatures are milder than you'll find in the rest of the state, only occasionally dipping below freezing in the coldest months of January and February. You'll still want a warm coat if you're out exploring the windswept beaches or watching the sunset.

Natural features

Sail off into the sunset

Drive the length of the Jersey Shore and you'll eventually run out of land at Cape May. A Sunset Beach vacation rental is your gateway to exploring the waters of the Mid-Atlantic and Delaware Bay. Characterized by flat lands and sandy beaches, it's the perfect place for leisurely strolling. As the name implies, the sunset views can't be beat, and the sound of crashing waves will lull to into a peaceful sleep. Be careful if you venture too deep into the waters, as they've had some great white shark sightings in recent years.
