a retreat for beach lovers
If a perfect beach vacation means never having to put your shoes back on once you arrive and always being steps from the ocean, then the Beach Shack is the place for you. Stylish and relaxed, the Beach Shack is Cape May's fresh and fun alternative for beach lovers who want a retreat the whole family can enjoy together.
It's a one-of-a-kind island vibe all just a stone's throw away from Cape May's historic downtown. Nestled on Beach Avenue close to Cove Beach, the Beach Shack's spacious accommodations make it perfect for groups and families - even four-legged members, too! The Beach Shack is one of Cape May's few dog-friendly resorts and has a selection of dog-friendly rooms available each night.
At the Beach Shack, you’ll always be close to The Rusty Nail, Cape May’s legendary hang-out for lifeguards, surfers and other beachgoers, who flock to the long bar after hours for the shore’s coldest beers and best vibe. You’ll love the casual outdoor ambiance, friendly welcoming staff, live entertainment and our fresh take on all your seaside favorites like clams, oysters and the great fresh fish. Once you’re settled at one of the tables, it’s not hard to see why Travel & Leisure chose The Rusty Nail as one of "America's Top 10 Beach Bars."
So grab your flip-flops and come let the long, sunny days at the beach flow into nights filled with music and laughter. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
