Cape May Lighthouse Cape May Lighthouse Review

The Light beacon flashes every 15 seconds and can be seen from 24 miles out at sea. The present day lighthouse is actually the third lighthouse built at Cape May point and was constructed beginning in 1857 by the Army Corps of Engineers.

There are 218 steps from the ground to the top, with 199 steps in the tower's cast iron spiral staircase.

From the top you can see a beautiful view of all Cape May point, Sunset Beach and make out the sunken concrete ship "The Atlantis", over to the amusement piers in the Wildwoods.

Directions: Located in Cape May Point State Park, Lower Township
