Point Pleasant beach is an average stretch of sand on the NJ coastline. It's not terribly dirty, but not terribly clean either. It's nice that there is a tiki bar and a boardwalk to spend some time at, but the boardwalk is tiny and just OK. Daily beach badges are $10 right now, so plan to spend a decent amount... More

This beach is great for day trips from North Jersey/NYC. Beware of heavy crowds during the summer weekends, but other than that, this is a nice beach for families and groups. There's a lot to do right by the beach (i.e., boardwalk, mini-golfing, small amusement park, arcades, beach eateries and tiki bar).

This is a fairly nice beach to enjoy the sand and serf, on a warm sunny summer day in NJ! We stay mostly on the nice boardwalk that runs along side of the fairly clean beachfront.

Point Pleasant Beach NJ is one of the best beach places that one could go to on the Jersey Shore. We went to Seaside and had a bad experience with parking and it was too expensive. But Point is awesome, the beach was clean, there were ample bathroom facilities, the boardwalk was both adult and kid friendly, and the prices... More

This beach is about 1 1/2 from home, so closest we can get. We can always park right next to the bath house, very close to beach. $15.00, all day. Not a bad price, but up from $10.O0 last summer. The boardwalk is great, we always have a wonderful time. There is a fee to go on the beach $9.00... More

I think Point Pleasant Beach Boardwalk is perfection. It's just the right length for a walking and playing the games. The food choices are typical but that's the Boardwalk for you.

Great family town with access to many beaches and attractions nearby. Good for kids and adults too. Variety of restaurants and a nice downtown area.

I always enjoy Point Pleasant Beach. It has something for all ages. I enjoy the beach, the motel pools and the boardwalk. I especially like the boardwalk arcades in the evening, The food on the boardwalk is great too. The surrounding area also has great restaurants from pizza to sea food and everything in between. My grandkids love the Jenkins... More

Point Pleasant Beach is an excellent place to bring your family to have a good time because there is a very nice aquarium, kid's rides, games, swimming, clean beaches, lovely one mile boardwalk each way to stroll on, and good eats.

We went after the sidewalks got rolled up after Labor Day. Yet there were some nice stands still open. The beach was clean and beautiful! We would go back again.
