Best NJ Beach

I went to Belmar Beach a lot as a kid and it was great to see that it hasn't changed. Great family beach.

Nice crowd and boardwalk, however my 2 and 4 yr old hated it. There was such a drop from sand to water and barely anywhere to stand for kids to stand comfortable and play in water. Sand was too hot to walk on for shell searching. You can't even walk along water because of the angle your walking at. People... More

Absolutely love Belmar Beach. The beach is very wide. Lots of food choices on boardwalk and across street. Parking can be a little tricky on busy weekends.

If I could give it -1000000000, I would. The seniors were so rude and racist. They would treat their kind differently from us and told us to get our stuffs off the bench and the shower. Like, what? You've never seen Asians coming to your beach before? I will never go back to this horrible place again!

This is a great beach if all you want to do is go to the beach. The beach is clean and parking is plentiful and cheap ($1 per hour). If you can find parking across the street or on the side streets, parking is free. There is a boardwalk and a few nice restaurants but shopping and other activities are... More

I have been to many beaches in NJ and this by far is the best beach I have been to. It has all the convenience a beach should have. For starters, the beach is right off the highway unlike other beaches. Before I realized I was looking for a parking spot. No traffic even on a Saturday summer afternoon. It... More

Belmar is not the most friendly beach town. The beach is wide so it never feels really crowded, however, you get the feeling they do not want visitors. There is parking right near the beach; last summer is was $1.00/hour, now it is $2.00 per hour. Street parking is non-existent no matter how early you arrive. So many spaces are... More

Have been to beaches all around USA, including many lakes. Pretty hard to beat Belmar. Beaches and boardwalk completely repaired from Hurricane Sandy, which was much worse than Media reported. Beaches are large, deep, life guards on duty, new bathroom facilities every few blocks. New playgrounds added right on the beach, believe there are four along the twenty block beach.... More

The beach is back - the boardwalk has been rebuilt - but none of the businesses that were ON the boardwalk are back. It is a nice place to go - but it does get very crowded on the weekends - and if it is the weekend of a festival, forget it - don't even bother - you will have... More

Great NJ beach without rides and games. Boardwalk is outstanding for walking and jogging. Nice kids playgrounds on beach every few blocks. Illegal to smoke on beach. Has a number of handicap access ramps. Parking on weekends is tough if not there early. Food trucks and concessions available. North side of town is family oriented with an active beach volleyball...
