Wonderful comeback from Sandy! The new boardwalk and beach resurfacing are great. Many food shops and things to do.

Belmar is a wonderful beach destination in early fall. The beach and boardwalk are easy to walk, and no beach tags post-season. There are clean rest room facilities and playgrounds, and the town is clean and safe with plenty of free parking. Since SuperStorm Sandy, the beach facilities and infrastructure have been rebuilt, as well as most of the residential... More

Dogs are not allowed on the boardwalk, but they are allowed on the beach itself! I enjoyed my walk from Belmar down to Spring Lake and back. Highly recommend!

There is nothing better than a stroll or run on this beautiful boardwalk. The views are great. It's kid friendly. Completely revamped after Super storm Sandy. It is improved every year. This year they added boardwalk water fountains, water bottle filling stations and cell phone charging stations!

The beach was clean and the coast line was probably 100 yards or so to the waters edge. Metered parking is available right along the boardwalk. The boardwalk is not the 100 year old wood planks that use to support the beach goers of the past.

Belmar has an OK beach and an OK boardwalk, but has limited options. I just think that Point Pleasant is a better choice. They have a much better boardwalk with so many games and food choices.

My boyfriend and I visited Belmar beach this past summer for a weekend and stayed at the Belmar Inn. The beach was very clean, had ample lifeguards on duty and even had bathrooms for beach-goers! We didn't mind paying to get on the beach each day since parking was free. Although parking is free, I would recommend getting to the... More

What could be a better way to travel but to do it with a local who lives and breathes in NJ? Belmar Beach has awesome waves, warm water and just simply relaxing. Don't forget to dine in at Kleins and The Columns. Kleins has happy hour for drinks and appetizer. My man brought me to the best part of New... More
