Sunset Beach, Lower Township

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Lower Township
Appropriately named, Sunset Beach is well-known for the show of colors as the sun dips below the horizon. The sunset attracts a crowd, so head there well before it's time for the sun to go down to snag a spot. The beach is also famous for the flag ceremony honoring veterans that happens every night during summer. Marvin Hume, the owner of this stretch of beach property, has held this ceremony for the last 40 years. The temperature drops when the sun disappears, so bring a blanket to cozy up. You may find be lucky enough to find a "Cape May diamond," beautiful pure quartz crystals known to wash up on the beach.
