We're a family of 4 with two children under 9 years old. The beach at Point Pleasant had a sign warning of rough waters , I heard from a friend that this was the case most of August. Huge waves & rough water , not great for little one's. We decided to go anyway because the day was so hot... More

Beautiful and clean beach but expensive to get on at $9 per adult. Attentive lifeguards. Bath house by the aquarium was gross and smelled like urine, even though there was a little woman in there collecting tips in exchange for a paper towel!I think she should clean the restroom if she wants to make money!

Had a nice day at Point Pleasant Beach. Water was nice. Boardwalk was fun. Typical boardwalk food around. Parking at $3 per hour. Get there early as they fill up fast. Entrance to beach $9 for adults, $2.50 for kids. Umbrellas rental $10,chair $8. Bring your own if you have one.

beach was nice and clean had rental umbrellas available for $10 and chairs for $8 if you didn't want to lug all of your things from parking . Bathrooms could have been better but wasn't expecting them to be that great at a public beach.

We got to the beach for 9 am so we were up front for the waves. The beach and water were clean. Lifeguards seemed to be very alert and friendly.
