Great times in PPB

My daughters and I visited Point Pleasant Beach week of June 7th. Our 3 trip there. We lucked out on the weather, it was beautiful mid 80s every day and had 2 nights of rain. All in all good weather. Water was chilly, about 60 degrees but warm enough for a quick dip.
We stayed at a friend's house, so I can't comment on accommodations here.
Beach was absolutely immaculate. They were also pretty empty. We were down by Elizabeth Street beach( private). Only about 25 people total by mid day. So, that was nice. Ate lunch on the boardwalk one day, about 60.00 for the 3 of us for pizza, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and fries plus drinks. Not bad for the shore.
Had dinner in a few nights and ate out 2 nights. You can expect 100.00 plus bill for 3 people at a good place but I'm sure there is cheaper if you look.
Had dinner at Klees in Seaside one night. Always good, we go back every year. Also one night at Mariners Cove in Brielle. While food was good, service was a little off due to staffing. My burger was amazing as was my daughters Filet Mignon. My other daughter had Sushi and said it was equally as good. We also had French onion soup that was amazing 95.00 for 3 wasn't bad for what we got. Great trip, good family atmosphere in PPB.

Sun was warm. Sand was warm. Water was freezing. Not many people on a Wednesday. Many places were open. Nice day to stroll or sit on sand in the sun

Need corrective measures

It was disappointing to be charged $12 badge fees to use a beach that has no sanitary convenience or running water. It’s disturbing that such a beautiful State to think so poorly of its residents and visitors to think that not providing users of the beach with the right to a toilet is acceptable. I asked the Life Guard for these facilities and she said it is poorly funded and is geared for locals who have access to their homes. Please put something on your website to inform visitors that none of these needed services are available. Traveling for 2 hours to get to a beach to learn that on arrival is very disappointing.
That’s only fair!

Summer fun!

We love this beach Contrary to what I have seen on TV, it was NOT over crowded or packed. People were def SD, and not one person I saw was having a problem doing so. The beach is very clean, well maintained and quite beautiful. Actually, my pics look exactly like the one above!

Great beach, lots to do, despite the times. Some kiddie rides open now and the beach is always big and broad.

Not as Family Friendly

To understand Point Pleasant Beach and Boardwalk in 2020, I reflected upon my long history with this New Jersey shore landmark. In my youth admission to the beach was free. Today, the cost is $9 on week days and $10 on weekends, Pre- COVID-19, had no restrictions on the amount of people. Beware that today, admission to the beach is restricted to a certain number. Bracelets are given out on a first come first serve basis until capacity is reached. Parking has gone up over the years as expected. Now parking will cost you $20 per day. If you try to park a few blocks from the beach, you need to get there early or get lucky. Do you like to see the sunset on the beach? The beach closes at 5:30 and the lifeguards leave. When I first came to Point Pleasant, Jenkinson ran the aquarium. Today, Jenkinson owns much of the boardwalk. Rents are high and restaurants and other attractions reflect that in there pricing.

What is still great about Point Pleasant is the beautiful white sand beach, the palm trees, the arcades and various shops on the boardwalk. Frankly, I enjoy the New Jersey shore the most in the Fall and Winter. I like taking walks, fishing from the beach or deep sea fishing. Lately I have become a better paddle boarder. Sun bathing has never been my thing unless you consider sitting at Martells' Tiki Bar sun bathing.

Clean beach, friendly people

Beach was very clean. Water is also clean as it can be. Such a nice beach.

The problem is the boardwalk people to do wear masks and do not follow social distancing.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The sushi and service are great. They go above and beyond to make sure they provide this service to locals throughout the year. Thank you!
