Cape May Point was founded in the 1800's and is located below South Cape May. You would never know that South Cape May existed since it is now underwater. That is another story. Presently, I think you would consider it south of The Cove.
If you are interested in coming to Cape May Point, there is a fabulous museum and Lighthouse that gives the rich and detailed history of the Point. You are able to walk up the Lighthouse to the top. It is breathtaking once you get there.
This is the view from the beach of the Lighthouse.

The musuem has examples of the types of things you would find on the beach. There are razor clams, mermaid purses, and seahorses, to name a few. They also go into detail about the migration of the Monarch butterfly.
If you are on the beach, you may be able to see just what comes out of our oceans if people are fishing.
This is a sand shark.
If you are coming to Cape May Point, I would recommend stopping by and taking one of their tours to learn about what makes our ecosystem so special.
