During our decades of spending time in Cape May County, my wife and I never tire of visiting Sunset Beach. Regardless of the time of day or time of the year, this beach offers great views of the Atlantic Ocean. On winter days, as the sun begins its early sunsets, the views are particularly gorgeous as the evening approaches and the sunset provides quite the show! One of the remaining highlights of Sunset Beach is still the S.S. Atlantus. This ship is one of 12 concrete ships built by a Georgia company during and after World War I. The ship was retired in 1920 after two years of service. While it was moored in what was to be its final home in Cape May County, a severe storm hit and caused the ship to run around and lodge at its present location. Sadly, I have seen the ship continue its deterioration over the past nearly 40 years. Relatively little remains of the ship above the water line, but it is still an interesting site to see when visiting Sunset Beach. Note that there are a few shops and cafes within walking distance of the beach that offer t-shirts, other apparel, café type food and souvenirs, including the iconic Cape May “diamond”.

One of the best sunsets you will ever see in your lifetime, a definite must visit place. With nothing blocking your view, there is no better site then watching the sun disappear inside the water.

Sunset Beach at the end of Sunset Boulevard offers beautiful views, a nice beach and a glimpse of whatever is left of the Concrete Ship Atlantus. Photo ops abound. The souvenir shops offer local mementos, as well as, snacks and drinks if you need them. Ample parking available.

Went here with my boyfriend in the morning to see the shipwreck. This beach is known for their seaglass. We walked around the beach a little bit.
