The Cape May Point Beach Tag Program has been in operation since 1972.  We provide a number of services on the beaches here at the Point.  We sell beach tags by the day, week and the season to gain access to our beaches for those over 11 years old.  The tag program offers free tags to veterans and active service members and their immediate families.  We also provide assistance and information to those who request it.


Beach Tags Required

Everyone 12 and over must have a beach tag to access any Cape May Point Beach from the 3rd Saturday in June through Labor Day.

Beach Tag Rates

There will be no in-office preseason sales during the month of May this year.   At this time, seasonal tags can ONLY be purchased through the mail and will  be held at Borough Hall for future pickup.   The 2020 Beach Tag preseason reduced rate is now $33.  Make checks payable to “Borough of CMP” allowing for $33 per tag.  Checks must be RECEIVED by May 31st to qualify for the reduced rate.  We appeciate your patience as we are not certain when Borough Hall or the beaches will reopen.

**The deadline for purchasing seasonal tags at a pre-season discount has been extended to Friday, June 19, 2020.**

**Beginning Friday, May 22nd, pre-purchased beach tags will be availalbe for pick up from Friday through Monday, between 9:00 a.m. and 12 noon.  The tag office will be a temporary building located behind Borough Hall at the entrance of the State Park.  Tags will also be sold during these times for $33 each but must be purchased via check or money order ONLY.  This opportunity will be available until June 19th.  Tags go into effect June 20th at $40 each.  Tags can still be ordered by mail at the discounted price until June 19th.**
