The sand at the beach was great. I guess after hurricane Sandy the sand got crazy. It is smooth then dips down, then goes up and then down to the water. It looks like if you went in the water it would get deep very quickly.

A good day at beach combined with kids &rides. Good fun for children of all ages, starting with 4 year old to me, 70 year old. We all had a wonderful day, good food on boardwalk, great swimming in the ocean & dusk onward, some ups & downs, spinnings, & more on rides, something for everyone, even dancing at some... More

The beach is a short walk from Point Pleasant Manor, up a wooden stairway. My granddaughter loved watching the teenagers in the surf school out on the water. Sail boats and wind surfers also added to the amusement.

I just had the opportunity to enjoy the same beach I enjoyed as a child with my children. This is a clean and well maintained beach. Wide, not too crowded. Just perfect. If you are lucky you will see cresting dolphins from the shore.

Nice wide beach. Plenty of space. Very relaxing. Great for all ages. So much to do right off the beach too. I always enjoy Point Pleasant and went as a child and now enjoy taking my children

Love the atmosphere on the boardwalk. The water was cold but the beach was clean. My kids love the rides.

Just spent a week at Point Pleasant Beach and we all had a great time. The beach is extremely clean and definitely a family atmosphere. Lifeguards were everywhere and very attentive, flags were clearly visible as to swimming conditions. Can't wait to go back!

I am not a fan of beaches in the states. However, this beach is not too bad. It helps that I am a self proclaimed beach bum :).

I love the beach, it doesnt matter where..but small kids going near this part of the ocean need to be supervised..sounds like a no brainer but the waves crash hard along this coastline and you will get sucked in if not careful and spit back out. Best to go at low tide and where there are life guards. Even adults... More

Nice beach. Has lots of food choices available, although Martells has the largest portion of concession who their pier. Great rides for children and enough games and arcades to give one something to do. A scaled down Seaside Park. NJ suffers from such an undeserved bad rep sometimes. Having been born and raised in the Garden State I do take... More
