Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is a beach located near Cape May Point, along the Delaware Bay, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. It is a local tourist attraction, in part due to its proximity to the SS Atlantus (locally known as the "Concrete Ship") and the Cape May Light. It known for a flag raising-lowering ceremony which takes places every morning and evening from May through September. All the flags flown in the ceremony are flags from the caskets of veterans. The ceremony has been taking place on Sunset beach since 1973.[1] Other attractions include "Cape May diamonds", clear quartz crystals that can be easily found along the beach's length, and summer fireworks.[citation needed]
