Decided to take a day trip to Point Pleasant and it was not as Pleasant as expected. First off this place is expensive and over crowded. I found 1 bathroom on the whole boardwalk. It was dirty and smelled of stale urine. The beach cost $9 a person to even walk on. If you buy a pass for one section... More

The beach is clean and spacious. Kids can have fun and love playing with the other kids at the beach. The boardwalk at the beach is smaller compared to the Ocean city but the rides are fun for young children. My 4 year old enjoyed the amusement rides a lot. Its cheaper too just $.50 a credit and on average... More

The town is overcrowded, tired looking and is in desperate need of updating. Its also very expensive, more so if you get a parking ticket. Never again.

A nice beach by all means and clean as well. The board walk makes it even better with many activities. As this is in Central Jersey the crowds are huge.

The side was high the day we went so we got to watch many boogie boarders and surfers on the north portion of the boardwalk. Sand is very clean and the city does a good job taking care of the boardwalk.

I really enjoyed visiting Point Pleasant Beach in New Jersey, even though I visited in the colder months when there was snow on the beach. It is a big beach with a path for bicycles and cottages behind that. There is lots of space and you get a good view of the whole beach!
