Beach Showers in Cape May NJAre there public locker rooms or showers in Cape May?

There are no public locker rooms or shower facilities, but there are open showers located along the beachfront that allow you to wash away sand.

Sometimes people wonder if there might be a low-cost motel near the beach where they can rent a room for a few hours. Unfortunately, even the most affordable motels on the island have minimum-night requirements during the summer, so this would end up being a very costly solution.

If you are a daytripper and plan to spend the day on the beach and then head to dinner, more than likely you won't be able to take a full shower and change. There simply aren't facilities for that. We would recommend removing as much sand as possible with the outdoor showers, throwing on a cute coverup, and enjoying your evening regardless!
