Point Pleasant Beach is famous for its annual Seafood Festival in September. The Boardwalk is home to a first class aquarium, as well as rides, arcades and diverse dining experiences, ranging from the traditional sausage sandwich to sushi. However, everyone on the property is required to have a Beach Badge. This includes use of the Pier, Boardwalk, and Playgrounds. Swimming will not be permitted when the Lifeguards are not present. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an Adult at all times. Moreover, swimming is allowed in designated areas only and no boat launching of any kind is permitted. All persons violating the rules will be asked to leave the property.
