The spectacular natural beauty of Cape May Point

Even though it’s a small town of just under 300 residents, don’t be fooled. Cape May Point vacation rentals are routinely sought out due to the area’s natural beauty, including its spectacular North Atlantic Ocean location along the fashionable Jersey Shore, as well as abundant wildlife viewing opportunities and sandy beaches. Oh, those gorgeous beaches! Add in an iconic lighthouse, Victorian architecture and even alpacas, yes, alpacas, and you've got something for all ages to enjoy. Plus some Cape May Point, NJ, vacation rentals are pet-friendly, so everyone in your family, including Fido, can enjoy this scenic oceanside destination.

Things to do

Cape May Point offers history, trolleys, and... alpacas?

Grab yet more taffy and head to the iconic 1859 lighthouse at Cape May Point State Park. You’ll need the sugar rush to make it up 199 steps to the top, where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic peninsula views and another bag of taffy. Just kidding. There’s a 1942 World War II Lookout Tower, and if you’re traveling with kids, they’re sure to love interacting with the Jersey Shore Alpacas. Take a trolley ride to neighboring Cape May where you can see Emlen Physick Estate, a beautiful Victorian home. Then relax and wind down the day with wine tasting. Cheers!


Soaking up the sun and fun in Cape May Point

Grab yourself some saltwater taffy and head out to explore the area. You can try your hand at fishing on Lake Lily or Lighthouse Pond, play a round at Cape May National Golf Club, or even take the ferry from Cape May Terminal to Lewes, DE. Spend some downtime soaking up the sun or enjoy swimming at Sunset Beach, all the while knowing you and your kids are being safely monitored by Cape May Point Beach Patrol. Plus, just off Sunset Beach, you’ll be able to see the remains of the S.S. Atlantus, a 1918 ship made out of concrete.
