New Jersey is famous for its miles of stunning beaches and its unique boardwalk culture. Point Pleasant Beach offers an amazing combination of sun, sand, and fun for the whole family.
The primary attraction of this delightful locale is, of course, the beach, the entrance to which is actually directly across the street from the Dunes Motel, at 1601 Ocean Ave., Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. The blue waters and white sands are the ideal place to spend a summer day, and all of the public access beaches are monitored by a lifeguard from 9am to 5pm every day.
Once you’re tired of getting sand in your shoes, it’s time to check out Jenkinson’s Boardwalk.
This is the perfect place for kids who get bored easily, or adults who are young at heart. There are arcades to test your skill, a funhouse to make you laugh, and even an aquarium. Children and adults alike can watch sharks, penguins, and even alligators! There’s even a touch tank where you can feed stingrays and sea stars.
Ice Cream, Anyone?
And what better way to end your amazing beach day than with a taste of homemade ice cream from Hoffman’s?
Located at 800 Richmond Ave., this Point Pleasant staple specializes in homemade ice cream with a quality that you will not find anywhere else in the world. Enjoy classic flavors like vanilla and chocolate, or get a little more exotic with combinations like “Jersey Monkey,” “Cookie Monster,” and “Almond Turtles.”
Whether you’re coming out to catch some waves, pet some stingrays, enjoy some homemade ice cream, or just soak in some of the warm Jersey sun, Point Pleasant Beach has something for everyone.
To make the day perfect, make sure you travel in VIP style; join us on the Seastreak ferry to begin relaxing as soon as you leave home and let that feeling of beachfront calm last all through the day.
Sea you Soon!
