I love heading to Belmar beach. I feel it is better than other beaches in NJ due to its cleanliness, and space. Alos, the atmosphere is more laid back. A lot less partying teens then other beaches. Be prepared to pay $$$ for food.

I lived there for three years. Great nightlife, restaurants, beach and Boardwalk. Summer is definitely the time to be there, but if your looking for a toned down good time with family or just want to relax visit there after Labor Day.

Nice sand, clean bathrooms, well trained life guards. Season badges are the way to go for a good value. Parking on weekends will take its toll.

I have no issue with the town of Belmar itself. It's a nice town with great restaurants. The rebuilt Boardwalk is nice too. My issue is with the actual sand on the beach. It is a disgusting reddish brown color, very rough, full of sharp rocks, and it stains everything it touches. My feet turned black, I had to throw... More

When visiting my family in NJ,(originally from Asbury Park) I always like to do my morning walks on the boardwalk; So glad to see all the renovations going on and being done. Love walking on the boardwalk and looking out at the ocean and sand. Although some mornings were freezing...in the 40's...I always managed to get my walk done.

The beach and boardwalk here in Belmar have come through Sandy better than most Jersey Shore towns. Plenty of good parking. They've done away with parking meters and have gone to a numbered space system where you pay at a kiosk and enter your parking space #. It's way more convenient than having to keep feeding change into a meter.... More

It's not listed, but we walked on both the Spring Lake Boardwalk and the Belmar Boardwalk. It snowed while we were there, so no beach walk. We like Spring Lake's boardwalk in all seasons. One of the things about it is that you can walk, jog run at any hour of the day or night.

If you want Saint Tropez or the Costa Smeralda, this ain't it. It's the Jersey Shore! You loved it as a kid and it's still here.

I've lived on the NJ shore my entire life. As a child, my parents always kept a membership to a private beach club. Now being the adult I wonder why they did. Belmar beach and board walk is safe, clean and always something fun to do. I now take my parents in their wheel chairs along the boardwalk so they... More

After hurricane Sandy, the mayor of Belmar promised the boardwalk would be rebuilt before the start of the next summer season. He had his doubters but it was done and it is a great boardwalk. A dark composite material that looks great, cleans easy, does not show the dirt, no splinters, smooth service and will not deteriorate. The boardwalk is... More
