SEA ISLE CITY – Sea Isle City is home to miles of beaches, storefronts, and ocean views, and according to, a leading vacation rental site, the town is one of the top 10 travel destinations in the whole wide world in 2023.

The southern Cape May city  hosts tourists from all over the state each year. Though these numbers have been cut by the pandemic, in the new year Sea Isle promises a return to form.

Among the summer destinations based on U.S. traveler searches, Sea Isle came in at number 10 of the top spots to visit behind destinations like Crete, Greece; Protaras, Cyprus; and Normandy, France.

Beach goers can enjoy sunrise yoga, yacht clubs and of course sun and sand. In the upcoming months visitors and residents alike can look forward to a St Patrick’s Day Parade, a seafood run for autism, and later a beach clean up.

“American travelers are looking to make a splash this summer; beach destinations and lakes continue to be among the most sought-after destinations on HomeToGo,” according to the website.

Sea Isle has more than just beaches. According to the city’s website, visitors can access the tennis courts for a small fee, while the skate park, and the now popular pickleball are both  free of charge. Those looking for land activities will have plenty to do. 

The town has a population of about 2,100 year-round; however, peaks to an estimated 50,000 to 75,000 during the summer season.

Additionally, the summer months boast a packed event calendar including surf contests, festivals, 4th of July fireworks and  more. 

It’s not hard to see why the N.J. town is making waves as the place to be this summer.
