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 tags are required while lifeguards are on duty and all tags can be purchased on the beaches from any Beach Tag Inspector once beaches open for the season.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no in-office preseason sales  inside Borough Hall this year.   There are 3 ways to purchase your pre-season tags:  1) seasonal tags can be purchased directly from the manufacturer online using this link, (processing and shipping fees apply); 2) you can mail a check to Borough Hall, as in the past, and pick them up from the Beach Tag Booth; or 3) you can purchase them in person from the Beach Tag Booth. 

The Beach Tag Booth will be located behind Borough Hall and will be open as follows: 1) during the month of May, open Friday through Monday between 9 am and 12 noon; 2) beginning June 19th, open daily from 9 am to 12 noon. 

Beach Tag Rates

The 2021 Beach Tag preseason reduced rate is $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 appreciate your patience as we are not certain when Borough Hall will reopen.

After May 31st:

Daily………………………………$10.00
Weekly (Sat -Sat)…………......…$25.00
Seasonal…………………………$40.00

Children UNDER the AGE of 12 are FREE!

All tags can be purchased on the beaches from any Beach Tag Inspector once the beaches open for the season.
