Belmar has signs banning all large tents on the beach, yet they are still there. There is no enforcement and everyone continues to set up these large camping or tailgating tents. There are also the smaller ones that sit on the beach; they are everywhere...More

Very clean and well maintained, we enjoy coming here. It has cleaned up in the many years since I was younger with new small shops around but not too many to spoil the area.

The boardwalk is clean and new with plenty of police patrolling it. There are chairs and even places to charge your phone there. However, there are not many shops and food places.

This is probably the cleanest beach I’ve ever been to. Lifeguards on duty. $8 to get in, but military and their dependents are free. Young children are free, too. Umbrellas for rent ($15). The water is really shallow - which we loved. Parking is free,...More

The most likely reason is they are concerned people will be bringing alcohol which is prohibited. Or trash will be left behind.

All NJ beaches require payment during the summer. Prices vary by town. Find a pool right now as most beaches are not allowing swimming due to storm runoff i.e. sewage. You would think by now they had that problem solved.
