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

I still find the Point Pleasant beach to be a great place, especially the northern end, where it is generally less crowded. The beach area there is very deep and long. I find it to be very clean. The beach areas starting from the Jenk's aquarium area and going south are generally much more crowded (I believe due to this... More

PPB is home to me. I have only lived there once in the early 90's but have been going to the beach there (Risden's) since the early 60's with my family. We grew up in Northern NJ, but our grandparents built a bungalow in Brick in the 20's and always were at the beach all summer. Wonderful childhood memories. I... More
