Nice Beach

It's a really nice beach by many attractions and plenty of food near by. The beach is pretty clean. It does get really crowded in the summer.

I couldn't ask for a better experience. My daughter and I visited the Point Pleasant Beach June 2016 and had a wonderful time. She played in the sand, waded in the surf and picked up shells while I sat under a rented umbrella and relaxed.

Been coming here forever. Beach is family oriented, nice long boardwalk from the jetty all the way to the attractions at the far end. Plenty of stops for sausage and peppers, ice cream, cold drinks. Went for a lovely fall walk last week and so peaceful and beautiful.

Point Pleasant is great all around as many good restaurants within walking distance from the beach. Great revival from Sandy destruction so always a good visit in the summertime.

Skip Seaside Heights and go here is cleanliness matters to you. The boardwalk, the shops, and the beach itself are clean and don't seem to attract the Jersey Shore kids crowd.

Very nice, beautiful, peaceful day at the beach. Walked along the board walk, checked out some of the local restaurants, walked down by the beach. Just a very nice day.

Yes, it's October, but it was still very nice. No crowds and it's kind of nice having the whole beach to yourself.
