Sunset Beach, New Jersey
Sunset Beach is a beach located on the Cape May Peninsula, near Cape May Point, in Lower Township 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 Lighthouse. It is known for a flag raising-lowering ceremony which is held daily at 7pm Memorial Day weekend through August, and at 6pm on Saturdays in 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. Other attractions include "Cape May diamonds", clear quartz crystals that can be easily found along the beach's length, and summer fireworks.
