If you want a clean beach suitable for all then this is a good spot. No alcohol is permitted so don't attempt it. Lifeguards are present during the tourist season. Food,lockers,& bathrooms are all nearby. Just be ready to spend a lot ofN$ if you have kids.

I used to come to Jenkinson's as a youth and loved the excitement and awe of the Point Pleasant Boardwalk. Sadly, the good days are long past for this place. Money is now the only driver. Everything is outrageously expensive - as if they have the right to hold tourists hostage. But it's no worse than every other Jersey boardwalk.

This boardwalk encompasses everything a Jersey Shore boardwalk should. It's clean, vibrant, and family friendly which is why I chose to drop down on one knee and ask my girlfriend to take my hand in marriage. My whole family came to take part in the surprise and it was a night I'll never forget. I've been coming to this boardwalk... More

It was a treat! I enjoyed the ambience of candy stores, games, the beach, and people walking along the boardwalk. Had dinner at restaurant next to the water, under a pink palm tree. What fun! Food was good, margarita was great and singing "Under the Boardwalk" was great. Am terribly sorry it burned the next morning and hope they will... More

Thank you for the kind words and well wishes. Fortunately for us, I think you received some misinformation - Seaside Park, NJ is the boardwalk that caught fire, about 12 miles south of us here in Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ. We hope to see you again this summer. More

My children enjoy the rides. If you purchase the ticket books during the yearly sale in the beginning of Spring, the rides are relatively reasonable. The nearby boardwalk is beautiful.

Jenkinson's Boardwalk is exactly what you picture a busy New Jersey beach boardwalk to be. Food vendors, excellent NJ pizza shop, carnival-type games, ice cream parlor, tacky souvenir shops, and a bunch of rides. We went twice: on Thursday evening and Friday day. On Thursday evenings in the summer, there are free fireworks. But watch out! That is about the... More

We took a day trip down here recently and had a very nice time. We went on several rides, ate some good food, strolled the boardwalk, played games, and topped it off with ice cream. This is the best boardwalk in New Jersey. Always has been the best.
