Jenkinson's Boardwalk

300 Ocean Ave., Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey 08742

Updated: 2018-11-12 23:47:59 Short URL:

Jenkinson's Boardwalk is one of the most family-friendly boardwalks in New Jersey. This one-mile long boardwalk along the beach has a great selection of arcade games, rides, batting cages, frozen custards, candy shops, eateries and more. Jenkinson's Aquarium is a great afternoon stop for the kids. And multiple bars, like Martell's Tiki Bar, are great for the adults.

Trail & Path Info

The wide boardwalk iswell-keptbut can be a bit crowded on just about any nice summer day.

The boardwalk itself will take you from a great food shack in the south to the Manasquan Inlet on the north, for a total length of about 1 mile (1 way).

Special / Seasonal Events

The boardwalk has special events throughout the year. This includes:

  • The annual Easter Egg hunt on the beach!
  • Weekly fireworks during the summer (usually Thursday).
  • Fun winter/holiday events.

Picnics / Lunches / Eating

Lots of food choices up and down the length of the boardwalk can be found. We usually hit up Joey Tomato's (near the golf course/fun house) or the pretzel shop. If you go, please grab us a pretzel :)

Admission & Guidelines

Admission to the boardwalk is free. But admission to the beach is not.

Hours / Season of Operation

The boardwalk itself is open 365 days a year. The games and food are limited to warmer months. Indoor eateries and arcades are (usually) open all year round.

Specials & Coupons

Jenkinsonshas a yearly Easter Sale that offers half-pricetickets that are good forever. It is a great deal!


There are a few private lots off Ocean Ave. There is also ample street parking in the town. But, of course, visiting during a peak weekend or during a big event may certainly frustrate those looking for a nearby spot.
