After a pleasant day across the channel in Manasquanpoint we drove over here to check out the beach, see the boardwalk and eat! On a Thursday night it was an absolute mad house!! No where to park, elbow to elbow on the boardwalk with totally left me unimpressed, and the beach looked just plain nasty!! Trash EVERYWHERE around the trash... More

Since I was staying at The White Sands we had a private beach which I loved. Didn't dislike anything.

I did not like how the beaches were segregated, I didn't realize I would not be welcomed to the majority of beaches on/off ocean ave and I would be confined to Maryland Beach which our hotel the Dunes had tickets to or the other "public" beaches.

The weather was simply gorgeous which made for a wonderful viewing of the fireworks from the beach. Since the kids were at the rides prior to the start of the fireworks, we made a beeline to the beach that fronts the... More

Came here with my friends and really enjoyed the beach. It was clean, a bit over crowded, but I'm sure the earlier you go the better it is. Had no trouble finding a spot to put our stuff down and relax on the beach.

One of the nicest beaches on the east coast. Clean, family friendly by a pleasant town. The boardwalk is beautiful, the home rentals are great right on the beach. It is a calm and beautiful destination for a day trip or a weekend.

We love point pleasant as an alternative to busier, more crowded beaches. Plus it is within 2 hours so makes for a good day trip. Parking and beach fee can be pricey - we tend to go on a weekday when cheaper and less busy. But for the price you are getting a well maintained, clean beach. Boardwalk has the... More
