Nothing compares to Sunset's, or Sunrise's, finding the nature, the natural in the world, and this is one. Sunset Beach is an Amazing place to find solitude, yourself, or just to take it all in. Quite an evening, clouds and fog rolling in North of the beach, looked more like smoke, managed to get a few pictures in before it... More

We returned to Sunset Beach for another visit this year. I wondered aloud to my husband if they had spectacular sunsets every night ... well, this time (our third in three years), they had another one! I don't know what causes these terrific sunsets at this location, but you'd need to look far and wide to find any better ones!... More

Very nice place to watch the sunset. I'd imagine parking is a problem in summer. Great place for pictures and to people watch.

This was our second annual visit to this beach and it is just so serene and peaceful. Pebble Beach is amazing for finding beach treasures and Cape May Diamonds. Lots of people fishing, taking photos of local birds, walking dogs and looking for stones. One of our favorite Cape May spots.

Amazing how many people are attracted to this spot to view great sunsets. Each year we go back again and again. There are two shops and a refreshment stand (always closed at evening) and the sunken cement ship. People are always searching for the Cape May Diamonds. Just a great overall feeling watching the sunset with the Cape May -... More

Beautiful sunset! A nice fall evening provided a lovely view for the sunset. There was a ferry that happened to cross right in front of the sunset but other than that, it was on par with a Key West sunset.

We were at the beach at sunset prior to the winds and rain from the hurricane reaching the area. This is great for walking on the beach, or just bring your beach chair and sit on the beach to watch the sunset. Obviously whether or not you have a great sunset is not predetermined. the history of the area is... More

Great sunsets. If your looking for souvenirs they have 2 places chocked full of anything you might be looking for. Plus the story of the concrete ship and lookout tower adds a little history to your visit.

This is a great place to look for Cape May Diamonds and to watch the sun set. During the summer evenings it can be a bit like the Key West sunset gatherings. Couples and families sitting on the beach enjoying a cocktail watching the sunset. Also a great place during the day to view the remains of the concrete ship... More
