All about the South Jersey Shore from Ocean City to Cape May


Strathmere is an unincorporated community just north of Sea Isle City on Ludlam Island. It is a sleepy beach community on the northern tip of this barrier island. The town is only two blocks wide at it’s widest. Stepping into Strathmere is like stepping into a small town of the past, with a blinking light intersection, a post office, a library and a couple fantastic restaurants.

The beaches here are spectacular. Not only that, but the beaches here are also free. That’s right, no beach tags are required as they are in other South Jersey shore towns. There are also some great dining options here. Have breakfast at Uncle Bill’s Pancake House or dine at the famous Deauville Inn and watch the sunset over the bay. 

Strathmere offers easy access to the bay. Here, you can rent boats or kayaks. You can also go fishing.  

This small town provides a peaceful beach experience. But its proximity to Sea Isle and the much larger Ocean City provides easy access to entertainment.  allows one to easily get to more lively, neighboring beach towns if so desired.
