Beach Information

Belmar prides itself on having clean, safe and fun beaches for families of all kinds. Their beaches are home to the most playgrounds in New Jersey. They were built with children’s fun and safety in mind, and are a great place for the whole family to enjoy. It is convenient for parents to take their children to the beach parks, as there is one located at about every 5 beaches.

In addition to this series of colorful and fun beach playgrounds every few blocks, several of their beaches are devoted to activities like boogie boarding, kayaking and surfing. They even offer a surf camp at 3rd Avenue Beach, where kids of all ages can take surfing lessons. For older beachgoers who prefer dry land activities, several of their beaches are equipped with poles for volleyball nets. And even if you don’t have your own equipment, it’s usually easy to join a game.

The boardwalk has been completely revamped and replaced with Trex—a composite material made of wood and plastic fibers that eliminates the possibility of getting a splinter. It’s a wonderful place to walk, jog, people-watch or just relax and enjoy the Ocean views. In addition, well-maintained restrooms are located every few blocks and they are constantly making improvements to their facilities and beautifying the boardwalk and dunes.

Belmar is also one of the most accessible beaches in New Jersey. They were one of the first towns to install Mobi-Mats to many of their beaches. These hard surface ramps continue down midway through the beachfront and provide universal access for anyone with a wheelchair, walking aid, or baby stroller.

Beach badges are required for admission to Belmar’s beaches from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., on weekends only from Memorial Day weekend until the full season starts on the third Monday of June, when badges are required every day until Labor Day.

2013 Belmar Beach Badge Prices

By law, all beach badge revenue is maintained in a separate Beach Utility Account and is used only to fund the direct and indirect costs of operating and maintaining Belmar’s beaches.

Seasonal Beach Badges may be purchased beginning December 1st through the middle of May at Borough Hall located at 601 Main Street. Once the beach is officially open you may only purchase seasonal badges at the Taylor Pavilion located at 5th and Ocean Avenues on the boardwalk between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm.

Daily Badge Sales begin with the Memorial Day weekend, continue on weekends only until the full season starts (the Monday of the third week of June) and then daily for the rest of the season. Daily badge booths are located every few blocks along the boardwalk. Pre-paid parking cards can be purchased here too.

Daily Badge Sales: Weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm; Weekends and holidays from 9 am to 5 pm.

Ticket Booths are located at 3rd, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th Avenues and at the Taylor Pavilion on the boardwalk between 5th and 6th Avenues.

Parking Along Boardwalk

Parking meters are installed along the boardwalk and require you to pay $1 for one parking hour. The meters take quarters or you can purchase a $20 pre-paid parking meter card at any beach badge ticket booth.

The 20-dollar parking cards gives you 20 hours of parking time and can be carried over from one summer to the next, as they never expire.
