Cape May Real Estate - Cape May Point

At the very southern-most tip of New Jersey is where you'll find our Cape May Point Real Estate. It's where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Delaware Bay and is where you'll find the most incredible beach homes perfectly located in a secluded setting. Originally founded as a religious retreat, the community with its pristine beaches, remains commercial free. Sunset Beach on Cape May Point, is one of only a few places in the country where you can see a sunset over the water's horizon.

Large sand dunes line the beachfront and seaside homes from modest to luxurious provide spectacular coastal views. Take a drive along Sunset Drive and you'll find the Cape May Lighthouse, a famous sunken ship, and Lake Lily with ducks, swans, gardens and a tranquil park. Birders and non-birders alike will appreciate Cape May Point Bird Observatory where birding platforms welcomes songbirds in the spring and hawks in the fall.

In the center of Cape May Point is Pavilion Circle. A small park where families enjoy picnics, games of croquet or Frisbee and flying kites, is where one of the first structures was built in 1875. Designed by the Philadelphia architect and fellow Sea Grove founder, J.C. Sidney, it was built as a shelter for Sunday worshippers - a fancy version of the tent revival.

Be sure to visit Cape May Point State Park, a bird watcher's paradise that attracts naturalists from all over the world. Climb the lighthouse or explore a World War II bunker. This is a key site on the NJ Coastal Heritage Trail with an environmental center and a museum. There are many trails worth exploring and numerous places to just enjoy a picnic while taking in the coastal views that include the occasional dolphin. Due to underwater hazards such as railroad tracks and the remnants of World War II gun batteries, swimming is prohibited at the State Park.

Today, Cape May Point remains a tiny community with no boardwalk, no motels and no liquor. This exclusive community is well-known for a small gingerbread church, the lighthouse, a concrete ship that lies just off Sunset Beach and tiny pieces of quartz called Cape May diamonds. Public beaches are available for swimming but each requires a beach tag specific to that beach. Tags are available on-site for daily, 3 day and weekly use. All of the public beaches have lifeguards.
