Belmar

This classic Jersey Shore town boasts a mile-long beach for sunning, bathing and some of the best surfing on the east coast.
 
The town’s beach, along with its Boardwalk and the many special events, make this a highly popular destination.
 
Its sandy shores attract a youthful crowd that sunbathes by day and takes advantage of the animated after-hours scene at night.
 
To experience a bit of Belmar bonhomie, head to either D’Jais (Ocean Ave.) or Bar Anticipation (16th Ave.) on a hot summer night.
 
Of course, Belmar also draws other shore lovers to its pristine beaches, including families, fishermen and world-class surfers.
 
Belmar’s also hosts the annual Belmar Pro Surfing Competion, which is a very large event for pro and amateur surfers. 
 
And the Belmar Marina is packed with sport fishing boats for ventures into the Atlantic.
