Beautiful, Scenic Point Pleasant Beach, located at the top of the Intercoastal Waterway in Ocean County, New Jersey, has much to offer, beginning with the calm, easy to navigate, deep bottomed Manasquan Inlet at the mouth of the Manasquan River. The town has remained virtually unchanged since the turn of the century. The downtown area reflects architecture of a bygone era, featuring restaurants, cofee shops, card shops, apparel shops, sailmakers, riggers, the original Point Pleasant Iron Works, welders, Inlet Diesel Repair and a host of cabinet, toymakers and carpentry shops. Water transportation is easy using our "Manasquan Water Taxi" service.
