Clean, Beautiful Beach

Enjoyed our visit to Belmar. Residential, quiet area, clean, not rowdy. Peaceful boardwalk. Waves were rough when we were there. Held on to our 5 year old tightly.

I'm from the shore area , and I would not take anyone or waste a day on a belmar beach. The sand is like dirt. The boardwalk is not like what you'd expect, ie point pleasant Boardwalk. Not a place for children - the beach goers wear tiny beach attire. And it's just a gross atmosphere

Loved it...! Waves are pretty dangerous for young ones especially high tide but other than that great experience. Parking is tough get there early.

This is from a resident. The boardwalk constructed after Sandy is absolutely the best around...both in terms of quality of construction and materials used plus the ability to have a clear view of the beach and ocean from anywhere on either side of Ocean Avenue. To the visitors, I say enjoy and have a great time but do not complain... More

Very nice, clean beach. Lifeguards were attentive, public restrooms and playgrounds every 4 blocks. Outdoor shower stations at each beach entrance. We were lucky to visit on an uncrowded day so we were able to park right at the boardwalk for $2 an hour. Beach tags $8 a day for ages 16 and over.

Belmar beach is an excellent beach, good for families and surfers alike. Movies on the beach too, plenty of parking more on the side streets, where you don't have to pay, lol. And if your into some activeties there are plenty of good bars to choose from or go fishing from the Belmar marina, all within a mile.

Just so you know, we were here weekdays! Nice, not too crowded (during the week) boardwalk was great for walking or running. The beach was clean and nice, and we found no problem parking. It is a cost to get on the beach, but its not that bad. My biggest downfall was trying to make sure my 16 month old... More

The beach is always clean and never very crowded. Great for sunbathing and enjoying the waves. It is also perfect to walk along.

You can't go wrong with this beach. It is clean. There are very clean bathrooms on nearly every block. And the people there are terrific. The only downside is that you have to pay to get on the beach... but that's probably why it's so clean, and there's no riff-raff there! So chalk up a few bucks and go have... More
