The beach is pretty nice and clean. There are nice clean bathrooms situated along the boardwalk every few blocks. There are garbage cans on the beach. The waves can be rough and the sand can be rocky.

Belmar is a beautiful Beach and everyone knows about it. Therefore, many, many people flock there. It gets insanely crowded in the summer which makes it unpleasant for me.
