Miami Beach is an unincorporated community in Lower Township in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States.[1][2]

Miami Beach is located on Delaware Bay, north of Villas. A beach with the same name as the settlement is also located there.[3]

The area was surveyed in the 1920s by the Miami Beach Builders Corporation of Philadelphia, who established the settlement there.[4]

Education[edit]

As with other parts of Lower Township, it is served by Lower Township School District for primary grades and Lower Cape May Regional School District for secondary grades; the latter operates Lower Cape May Regional High School.
