Family Boardwalk

Nice small relaxed family-friendly boardwalk. Plenty of rides for little kids. Aquarium is interesting.

This beach was a huge letdown. I consider myself a beach person. I love playing in the waves and relaxing in the sand. Point Pleasant Beach is the worst beach I have ever been to-hands down. Maybe I'm spoiled to be from New England, where the beach is free, the sand is fine and clean, and beach slopes gradually to... More

$10 per adult and $3 per kids to get on the beach is a little excessive, but once your on the beach, you tend not to mind! If your staying at a hotel, most offer discounted beach access passes. We stayed at Pelican Point motel and kids under 11 are free and adults $5

Lots of beautiful beach, lifeguard and nearby eating facilities make this an easy beach to visit. Beach passes are required but this is one beach that is worth it.

Got there by 10am. Parking lot in front of Jenkinsons Boardwalk still pretty empty. 3 dollars per hour for parking. We set up right next to the lifeguards. 4 hours went by quickly. Weather was awesome not much wind. I didn't spend any money we packed our own food. Altogether it was a good day. We left at 2pm. There... More

This was our second time going to Point Pleasant Beach very nice not to crowded. We went for a nice long walk along the beach and all the people we met where friendly. It was great that our Inn was just in walking distance. Hope to go back and bring the Grandkids with us this time!

The beach is a decent beach but gets crowded early. You have to get here early to find parking and a good spot to sit. Don't sit to close to the beach cause the tides will cause you to move back as the day goes by. Bring beach umbrella since renting is expensive. The beach gets crowded and no matter... More
