Paying for beach is dumb
Jul 2021
This is a beautiful beach and boardwalk. We walked the length of the beach on the boardwalk. We did not go on the beach itself. We are spoiled by beaches elsewhere because beaches should be free. We would rather go to any Florida beach for free than pay to go on a New Jersey beach.

Beautiful Day
May 2021
Took a day trip to Belmar for a change of pace. Quiet and peaceful in the off season. Easy parking and almost people free. I remember how busy this beach gets in the summer. Enjoyed the day

Day Trip
Jul 2021 • Friends
Enjoyed my day trip to Belmar beach. The water was choppy so not many people going in the water but it was still great for sunbathing, it was nice and breezy, the beach was clean and not too crowded. The parking was difficult to find but we ultimately found something.

Out of season free
Apr 2021
Beautiful sand, large beach, new boardwalk. Still out of season and port a johns in use for bathrooms. They were disgusting and the garbage by end of day was spilling out of cans at street level. Hard to imagine summer crowds.

A fairy tale town
Nov 2020
Great fairy tale town.
I have been there twice to go fishing once for sea bass and the second for striped bass.
Both times the fishing was great
The second time I was there this past Saturday into Sunday I elected to take the train which stops at 3AM near the fishing docks I walked the town streets which are now Xmas decorated and the next day I walked them again while waiting for the NY bound train. More peace & quiet you could not experience.
The streets and sidewalks are brick paved .and very clean.
A sampling of the type of stores you will find there are a cupcake shop, a store that lightly paints old furniture, an artisian baking shop and a store which sells ugly Xmas sweaters
If that doesn't get you excited nothing will The opposite of the Jersey Shore drinking scene famous on TV.
On Sunday everything shuts down by 3PM for the few stores that even opened, except for the 7-11 near the fishing boats and a couple of high end restaurants
Belmar looks like a great place to live with a family
A summer place for boardwalk hikers and beach goers and a must for fishermen.

Fabulous beach and boardwalk
Sep 2020 • Family
This beach has a double option, be at the crowded, noisy area good for our teenagers where they find music and restaurants or be at the peaceful area good for us adults. The boardwalk is well maintained and no bikes, dogs or skates are allowed. This makes it safe to walk and enjoy the views without worrying. As I mentioned, all beaches are beautiful. There is an entrance fee, $7 I believe but worth it. Go early to find good and close parking on the street, however after noon families with children leave early and there is plenty of parking. You can bike on the street to nearby towns and go over the bridge which is fun to watch the boats go by under it.

Fantastic boardwalk - great walking for exercise
Jun 2020
I walked on the Belmar NJ boardwalk many times during August 2020. It is about two miles long so a round trip is four miles. To the north end is a bridge between Belmar and Avon by the Sea and the Belmar fishing pier. In the middle is the Taylor Pavilion and Cruz Bay Cafe as well as Silver Lake. To the south are some shops and restaurants and the entrance to Spring Lake. The boardwalk is very wide and it is great for walking and exercise. Sometimes I went very early in the morning - about 7 am and sometimes I went late at about 6 pm. The views of the beach and ocean are very nice. In terms of COVID19 safety, some people wore masks but many did not. If you are alert while walking then you can social distance. All in all the Belmar NJ boardwalk is a great place.

Had a good time
Jul 2020 • Couples
This is a nice beach, but if you arrive at 11:30am on a Sunday be prepared to park a mile away. For the most part people had their masks on before entering the beach, but once you hit the sand absolutely no one had masks on. I spent all of time in the ocean so it didn't bother me much, but if you're worried about that then don't go to any public beach. Other than that the beach is very nice and so is the surrounding area!

Racist
Jul 2020 • Family
We are a family of 7, Obviously African American otherwise this wouldn’t have happened. we came to Belmar because we’ve heard great things about how clean the beach was, walking on to the beach one of our children realized she forgot something in the car, the car was only parked across the street, the other kids started waking on to the beach, my husband followed them on as they couldn’t hear us from the boardwalk to let them
Know we were leaving because there were no more beach tags, one of the security checkers stood at the top of the boardwalk and yelled profanity at my husband , as he walked up to clarify that he was just getting the kids the tag checker egged on a fight and then told my husband “ I’m here all day until 5” insinuating a fight as he ran to get cops, the police Were called by the other tag checker and she let the cops know “ there’s a group barging on to the beach” our kids are all under the age of 12. Kids he cops then attempted to follow us along the board walk until we left, this type of racism and blatant agitation is Cowardice and uncalled for! BELMAR YOUR POLICE ARE RACIST

Great Place to go and be socially distant from other people. Just get there early in the morning.
Jul 2020
Place is great for the family even during the whole Covid-19 crisis. The beach has a limited number of people allowed. So you have to make sure that you get there first thing in the morning or you are not going to get in. We got there at 9 am and the first beach we went to was full. Thank god for Belmar. Everyone was respectful of your space. nobody is wearing masks on the beach though. FYI. I can't wait to get back next weekend.
