Sunset Beach, NJ (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
We are proud to announce that Sunset Beach, home to the Cape May Diamonds, sunken ship U.S.S “Atlantus” and the evening Flag ceremony, has been voted top 25 beaches in the United States by Trip Advisor.
Sunset Beach is one of the East Coast’s most unique beaches. Located at the very tip of Sunset Boulevard, Sunset Beach offers an unobstructed view of spectacular sunsets over the waters of the Delaware Bay. Atmospheric conditions caused by the inter-action of sea breezes across the bay waters create remarkable colors as the sun sinks below the horizon.
Located where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, this free beach is known for its abundance in Cape May Diamonds. These gems are pure quartz crystals and when polished, cut, and faceted, have the appearance of a genuine diamond. Gorgeous jewelry pieces made from the Cape May Diamonds are sold in the Sunset Beach Gift Shops.
For over 50 years just off the coast of Sunset Beach lies the concrete ship USS Atlantus. Thousands of visitors come annually to view the cracked, weather beaten hull and watch the sunset over the remains of the ship.
Each night from Memorial Day to September 30th, about an hour before the most amazing sunsets, stop by Sunset Beach for our Evening Flag Ceremony. Every flag flown at Sunset Beach since 1971 has been a casket flag honoring a United States Veteran. A particular veteran’s casket flag is flown every day. During the ceremony, before the playing of Kate Smith’s God Bless America and the National Anthem, a brief biography about that veteran is read. As the flag is lowered before a setting sun, taps plays and concludes the evening ceremony. Don’t miss out on this moving and emotional event during your time in Cape May.
After a day of fun on the beach, searching for Cape May Diamonds, watching the dolphins jump by the Concrete shipwreck, and participating in the evening flag ceremony; take some time to experience a scenic round of miniature golf. Browse a selection of unique gifts in one of our three gift shops and see why Sunset Beach is rated one of the top shopping destinations on the east coast. Be sure to grab a bite to eat from the Sunset Beach Grille.
Don’t just take our word for it, come and see why Trip Advisor rated Sunset Beach top 25 beaches in the nation.
