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.

I admit I'm biased (I spent my childhood in Point Pleasant Beach) but the town is enjoyable in all regards. Great beaches, a large variety of very good restaurants (seafood and clams, clams, clams), and friendly and helpful people. The Jersey shore IS NOT what was depicted in that foolish TV show - it's a wonderful place to live and... More

Have visited Point Pleasant Beach several times - a nice shore town - lots to do but not too big. Nice beach, nice boardwalk, plenty of food & entertainment choices to make everyone in the family happy. Highly recommended!

Absolutely fun evening. Because its summer we were able to enjoy the boardwalk and a mini fair too! We parked a couple of streets away as it was free but there are paystations if you want to park right across the boardwalk.

We came on Friday in mid-June. We stayed on the part of the beach a little bit away from the boardwalk and it was much less packed. I never saw that much seaweed on a beach but it didn't affect the experience at all. Overall, a great relaxing and fun day.
