Relaxation in Point Pleasant Beach vacation home rentals

Point Pleasant Beach is one of the most popular summer resorts on New Jersey’s scenic Barnegat Peninsula. Its famous boardwalk is an iconic landmark, combining family-friendly entertainment with the same ocean views that first enchanted real estate developers back in the 1870s. The former farmland was swiftly transformed into a stylish seaside town with many elegant hotels, summer houses, and beachfront pavilions. The lure of the Jersey Shore is just as strong today, with Point Pleasant Beach vacation rentals providing the perfect gateway to its sun-drenched beaches, gourmet restaurants, and eye-catching attractions.

Things to do

Feeding penguins, stroking stingrays, and coming face-to-face with sharks are just some of the memories that visitors take away with them. A program of behind-the-scenes tours and special theme days widens the remit. The aquarium is open year-round but seasonal hours of operation vary, so check with the venue before you visit.
