  • Belmar, to me, is an ideal Beach Community. With one of the longest stretches of Beach and Boardwalk on the New Jersey Shore, enjoying the beauty and serenity of the ocean is very easy to do. However,...  read more »
  • We spent the day in the area. We have a very quiet and picturesque place. Very nice beach and boardwalk for a little stroll. Extensive and clean beaches. The only bad thing that bothered so cute place were boys of fraternities, completely twisted and rude, common in them, but more than that, all very nice to rest.

  • An absolute must, especially for fans of Bruce Springsteen. In this village is the mythical "E Street" and "Tenth Avenue". It's worth a spin!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Not a bad beach. Not super over populated, clean, the cops Are nice. Wish you could drink on the beach though... Pretty lame but other than that seems to be a decent destination for the day
  • This is a very nice clean beach with plentiful side street parking as long as you get here by 9ish. The bathrooms by 8th St are usually very clean, which is a huge plus in my book. If you get here before 9am, they won't be charging beach fees. They usually don't come around checking for passes -- of all the times we've come here, I've seen the beach police once. I wouldn't recommend bringing alcohol onto the beach, obviously, because that's not allowed. But if people did, and they had plastic cups and weren't being obvious jerks about it, there doesn't seem to be a problem.
