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.

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Saltwater Inn and everything was perfect! The hosts, Joyce and Marty, are gracious and so engaging; the accommodations were perfect and the breakfasts were delicious (and the aromas wafting through the house in the morning were a great 'wake up' call!). We WILL be back next year! Would highly recommend... More

We love Belmar! Fun for all ages. Enough crowd to be interesting. Buy the season pass. 9 days pays for it! Love to see kids, college-aged and us oldies enjoying the same space. Surf contest on September 12-13, 2016
