About Belmar

Found in Monmouth County, New Jersey, the name 'Belmar' is French for 'beautiful sea'. It was known as 'Ocean Beach' before its name was changed in the late 1800s and it was set up as a summer community.

Famous for its incredible fishing and fabulous all-year-round weather, you'll soon see why this place has captivated sun-seekers for such a long time!

Hungry? You'll find plenty of seafood, Italian and Mexican restaurants. There's some really good steakhouses and grills nearby, too, so there's plenty of choice whatever your tastes!

After a long day enjoying the sun, head on over to McCann's Steer & Spirits for a mouthwatering steak or a burger and a beer. Make sure to check out Jack's Tavern, a 50s-style bar that serves great food with reasonably-priced drinks!

What to do

Surf's up! Have a look at the rental gear over at Summertime Surf. They've got everything you need for a bit of windsurfing, kitesurfing and paddle boarding, and the instructors are super friendly!

Head to Belmar Beach and Boardwalk – it offers the best of the beautiful sea views and plenty of shopping outlets to suit you.

If you're in the mood for some art, check out the Boatworks gallery and workshop. Belmar has an active arts community with performances and festivals held throughout the year, so there's plenty for everybody to enjoy!

 Fancy a beer? Check out Beach Haus brewery. There's an incredible selection of brews to choose from. The brewery tour is fantastic, too!

If you're bringing the family with you, maybe avoid the brewery, but head to Go Play! It's a classic amusements arcade that's full of blasts from the past both you and the kids will definitely enjoy.
