Rhythm of the Sea Beachfront Bed and Breakfast on the Cape May New Jersey Shore
Rhythm of the Sea is located on Beach Avenue at the East end of the beach (Beach Avenue runs east and west and we face south), between Philadelphia Ave and Reading Ave. If you use GPS or an internet map service, be certain to use our hyphenated zip code 08204-2628 to ensure correct directions. If you are sent to Lincoln Blvd toward the Cape May/Lewes Ferry on the Delaware Bay then you are going the wrong way!
