We live near several vacation spots but Point Pleasant is our choice! Beaches are clean, lots of families and plenty of activities during the summer! We go every week for the fireworks! A definite recommend!

Oh my goodness it was cold! What were we thinking? I was thinking I needed to see the beach. Would love to see it again in summer. Certainly it'll be busier, and just as beautiful.

This town lives about 2-3 months: from US father`s weekend up to the labor weekend, when kids out of school and weather is warm and sunny. Climate is beautiful, you don`t feel a boiling hot temperature. There was 2-3 rainy days in the last season. You`ll love Point Pleasant if you come there with family (especially kids) and if it`s...

I've been coming here for many, many years. My visits to Point Pleasant have been during both the busy summer season and the winter. It has a nice boardwalk with food, games, and stores. At least one of the pizza places is open all year.

This beach is amazing. The downside is that it is very busy and you will not get a spot if you arrive late on a nice summer day. We arrived at 9 am in July on a great day and we got a very nice spot, but around 11 people and families started to pour in and claim their spots.... More

This beach is consistently clean, both on the sand and in the water. The water temperature is perfect, and if you go during the week, it's not too crowded. Weekends are another story, but as long as you can find a parking spot for your car, you'll find a nice spot on the beach. There is a mixed crowd, not... More

Since I dont like the scorching sun I did not enjoy the beach. Nevertheless I did dip into the sea , sat on the beach till we could bear the heat. It was Sept but it was hot,hot.... best time to visit is in the evening.

This is one of the best beaches along the jersey shore, although there's a fee to pay to get into, it's worth it because it's clean and safe. It can get really crowded in summer time so i advise to be at the beach early to get a nice spot where you can spent your day. What i like the... More

The impromptu road trip was an excellent idea and the town of Point Pleasant was a great choice. We stayed at the PP Manor and took the Maryland Ave access to the beach each day; pleasant people, nice sand, surf class nearby for the kids was great to watch and made me feel like a 10 year old kid again!...
