Point Pleasant Beach never disappoints! Always such a friendly atmosphere, great for kids, families, or just going to hang at the beach by yourself. There's loads of room to set up between the boardwalk and shoreline. It's a short walk from parking- for free parking...More

Nice beach, small boardwalk with an aquarium. Not as party-crazy as Seaside which is nice. Restrooms were clean though when we were there it was not too crowded so that helped keep amenities clean. Life guards on duty. We lucked out and found free parking...More

This is one large beach. It just keeps going in both directions. Waves can get big so do be careful. Lifeguards on duty. Very clean. Plenty of space to spread out. Able to rent umbrellas. Fee to enter onto beach each day and receive wristband.

Your average boardwalk, though there are no interesting shops. It is typical arcades, ice cream, a few bars, etc.

We went for a cold walk on the beach. We found clean, yellow sand with lots of huge intact seashells. The kids had a great time chasing the waves. The sand was a nice texture and we didn’t find any trash. Nice boardwalk.

Pleasant day at the beach searching for shells and pretty rocks with the family. The kids also had fun playing the claw crane machines. The arcades had a few play-until-you-win machines as well as machines with “easy” signs taped to the front glass with quality...More
