Spending time at a Cape May beach is one of the best ways to vacation. The sun on your skin, salty breeze in your hair – what could be better? Too bad you have to pack first. Packing is a drag and it can be super stressful! That’s why we put together this comprehensive Cape May beach vacation packing list so you know exactly what to bring with you.

The Basics

These items may seem obvious – and they have nothing to do with the beach – but you’d be surprised how many people forget at least on them in the rush of packing for vacation.

  • Driver’s License
  • Credit or Debit Cards
  • Cash
  • Health Insurance cards
  • Auto insurance cards
  • Rental/Hotel Confirmation Information

Beach Clothes

The right attire can make or break a beach vacation. Here in Cape May it’s typically hot during the day and chilly at night. Did you pack a sweater? Do you have a swimsuit you’re comfortable in? How about a coverup to protect you from sun? Clothes for dinners, dancing, etc.? There’s a lot to do in Cape May and not all of it involves to the beach. Consider packing some non-beach related items just in case.

  • 2 bathing suits (for each person)
  • Swim cover ups
  • T-Shirts
  • Shorts
  • Sundresses/skirts
  • Jeans/capris
  • Dinner outfits
  • Light jackets/wrap/sweaters
  • Sandals
  • Sun Hat
  • Sneakers

Beach Toiletries and Essentials

We all have different products we love to use. Don’t leave them at home! Remember, the sun and salt can do a number on your skin. Consider packing some extra lotions and moisturizers. You’ll likely rely on them – A LOT.

  • Sunscreen
  • Soap
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Lotion
  • Aloe
  • Deodorant
  • Razors
  • Brush/comb

Cape May Beach Gear

So, you’ve packed all the basics – now on to beach-specific gear. This stuff may not be essential, but it’s important if you want to make the most of your time at the beach, especially if you’ve got kids. And, don’t worry about things like umbrellas, canopies or chairs. At Montreal Beach Resort, we take care of that for you.

  • Beach tote
  • Beach towels
  • Beach blankets
  • Water
  • Beach toys
  • Waterproof bag for cell phones

  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Notepad and pens
