Super beach, wide enough, well maintained boardwalk (replaced over the years after getting battered), restrooms on the boardwalk, with food along both sides of the main drag. Parking can be a bear and is metered all day, side streets are free but finding a space is a challenge. Beach is pay per day with season passes available. Nighttime club scene... More

The new boardwalk is really nice! It's a beautiful area! There are not a lot of shops and restaurants on the boardwalk. It is a relaxing area off season!!

Loved long morning walks along the shore. Such a clean boardwalk and was nice to stroll from town to town.

Stunning views, but npt the best of the shore, try point pleasant or asbury, or others, because not much to do or see other than beach, a good 10 block walk to civilazation after that!

Belmar, to me, is an ideal Beach Community. With one of the longest stretches of Beach and Boardwalk on the New Jersey Shore, enjoying the beauty and serenity of the ocean is very easy to do. However, if you're looking for great restaurants and a fun night life that is possible here as well. Belmar is a lot of fun,... More

Went down to the beach for a much needed walk after a long ride from Maine. We were pleased that it wasnt crowded ..I'm sure in the summer would be very crowed..For us it was a nice visit.

We traveled here on a mid September weekend, it's a nice wide beach and this time of year is not crowded at all. Nice new boardwalk, still plenty of places open for food and drink.

It was clean, a huge beach, beautiful sand, a new boardwalk, washrooms along the boardwalk, beautiful houses across the street. Much nicer than I expected.

Season badge holder in Bradley Beach. Beach less crowded than neighboring Ocean Grove, at least at the north end. Beach clean and well tended. Two problems: if you enter from the north end and don't have a season badge and the ticket booth there is not open (which is often), it is a LONG walk to get a badge. Suggestion:... More

Spent a weekend at Belmar after Labor Day and it was free. Bathrooms were clean! Parking was easy to find. Great beach to get to from Trenton.
