Nice place to walk, jog or bike. Folks are pretty easy to get along with and their are families during the day. Less family friendly at night but OK if family events are occurring there.

The beach is always clean; unlike some other local beaches. Get a seasonal badge if you plan on going more than 6-8 times in a season, you'll save money.

Belmar used to be a college young adult town. They have worked hard to change that and become a family place. Sandy wiped out the boardwalk. Much work has been done. The sand is coarse and police walk the beach in shoes and shorts. They look for drinking and smoking. it is not the beach of old.

You just have to experience a walk on the boards in Belmar to understand why this is heaven! Parking is difficult to come by in the height of the season, but the beach is beautiful. Lots of places to eat and enjoy and public restrooms are clean.

Belmar is a wonderful beach destination in early fall. The beach and boardwalk are easy to walk, and no beach tags post-season. There are clean rest room facilities and playgrounds, and the town is clean and safe with plenty of free parking.
