  • Summer in Belmar is always busy at the beachfront. The beautiful restoration of the boardwalk following destruction during Sandy is being followed by a new Pavilion, a new Lifeguard Station, playgroun...  more »
  • Huge beach with constant waves that make for a fun and nice swim in the ocean. The boardwalk is recently renovated and it's pleasant to walk onto it. 
  • A great place for walks/jogs. The Boardwalk for a stroll along the beach. Views of the ocean and the waves are impressive.

  • Belmar is one of the signature beaches on jersey shore. I have been several beaches but Belmar is the best one with its crowd, cleanness and the beach type. It is so good that you can enjoy the waves and also the water. Water doesn't go deep really fast like other beaches that way it is not beating you each time. Point Pleasant and Sea bride one of the beaches that beach doesn't let you even swim and enjoy the water. Come before 8 o'clock to find proper parking. Otherwise really forget about finding parking.
  • Belmar beach was very clean. The boardwalk was nice and so are the people collecting your ticket at the entrance. It costs $8/adult to go on the beach, but given its cleanliness, it's definitely worth the price.
  • This is my new favorite beach to go to in New Jersey. I used to travel close to 3 1/2 hours just to get to LBI but no more. My wife and I met up with family to visit for the Fourth of July weekend and got there early to park. We found a spot close to Ocean Avenue that was free and close to the boardwalk. Beach tag center opens at 9 and they're around $8 for an adult, I'm not sure if the price changes for children or not. The boardwalk itself is very clean and well kept. It's made of those composite plastic boards that don't rot or splinter so no need to worry about that. They also don't allow those pesky skateboards either which is actually nice. There are lots of stores and restaurants to stop in at. The water here was clear up to my chest, I've never seen that before at the Jersey Shore and I can't guarantee it'll be like that if you decide to visit but it made for an unforgettable visit to Belmar for us and we'll definitely be going again! -Get here EARLY. Secure a good spot for parking and on the beach. You'll regret it if you don't.
  • Belmar beach and boardwalk is really a family friendly spot. If you want a few restaurant choices and shop options but not the overwhelming carnival feel of point Pleasant or wildwood. It's a nice mix of a little to do and a clean beach with a new, well cared for boardwalk. The seaside homes and architecture are not to be missed. You can walk the boardwalk from Sea Girt NJ all the way to Asbury Park NJ but bring good shoes... That's something on the order of an 8 mile walk in one direction.
  • Pretty good beach. Is quite clean. has a pretty decent boardwalk as well. They sometimes even play movies during summer nights. Has few rocky stones and steps which makes for good photographs as well. Kids had a good time ! Lotsa parking options too.
