Downtown Belmar offers numerous culinary options, including authentic Mexican, Cajun, Italian and old-fashioned American fare, and many restaurants offer sidewalk tables for people watching.
In the warm months there is always something going on downtown. Beautifully restored classic automobiles are abundant on Cruise Nights, fresh New Jersey fruits and vegetables are available at the weekly Farmers Market. Pyano Plaza hosts live entertainment weekly and retail merchants offer a wide variety of products.
Downtown Belmar is a “must visit” on your vacation itinerary.
Parking in Belmar
Spaces for parking in Belmar are provided along the boardwalk on Ocean Avenue. In the summer months these spaces are metered and require that users pay 25 cents per every 15 minutes that the space is occupied. As an alternative to using quarters, Belmar also offers parking cards that work with the meters. The parking cards can be purchased for 20 dollars at any one of our 7 ticket booths dispersed along the boardwalk and will carry over from summer to summer. In addition to metered beach parking, spots can also be found along the residential streets of Belmar and in parking lots at the train station and marina.
Visitors may also choose to travel to Belmar by boat. Belmar Marina is home to the largest number of transient dock spaces in Monmouth County with 70 boat slips, and docking for the day is free!
