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.

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.

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!

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

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.
