I love Point Pleasant because of the atmosphere. A calmer Jersey Shore. The beach is fairly clean. They boardwalk is not too long. They have some decent bars/clubs and some very good seafood restaurants. Good for families and an over 35 crowd.

More family oriented than Seaside or Belmar in my opinion. Boardwalk has been restored and things are back to normal. Beach is well kept, and kiddy rides and arcades on the boardwalk. My wife loves the skeeball.

In September, no guards are on site. Its still warm and pleasant, most bars, store and restaurants are still open BUT swimming is dangerous and waves are too strong.

Clean, secure beach for families. Somewhat pricy for adults paying on a daily basis, but children pay a reduced price based on age.

This beach and boardwalk was very nice. It has plenty of good food eateries as well as the aquarium. The amusement park area has plenty of rides, fun things to do as well as lots of arcades.
