A nice beach community with plenty of options for fun and relaxation. The beach and boardwalk is the central focus for most people in the summer. In the winter time, the locals take advantage of the peace and serenity of the shore taking walks on the beach and taking in the fresh brisk air. This area is family oriented so... More

Point is just one of those amazing Jersey Shore towns. It has everything, the boardwalk, amazing restaurants and cafes, cute shops, and the beach! It is extremely family friendly and safe. The beach is a lot larger than other beaches we used to go to. There are places you can eat right there on the boardwalk and there are bathrooms... More

We like to visit this beach because its a little out of the main board walk and beaches of downtown Cape May. Every time we've gone there is way less people than on the other beaches. However, we arent there a lot; so if you really want an out of the way place I would ask a local. There are... More

It's a really nice beach by many attractions and plenty of food near by. The beach is pretty clean. It does get really crowded in the summer.

I couldn't ask for a better experience. My daughter and I visited the Point Pleasant Beach June 2016 and had a wonderful time. She played in the sand, waded in the surf and picked up shells while I sat under a rented umbrella and relaxed.

Been coming here forever. Beach is family oriented, nice long boardwalk from the jetty all the way to the attractions at the far end. Plenty of stops for sausage and peppers, ice cream, cold drinks. Went for a lovely fall walk last week and so peaceful and beautiful.

Point Pleasant is great all around as many good restaurants within walking distance from the beach. Great revival from Sandy destruction so always a good visit in the summertime.
