In the past few years, the Belmar Marina area has gained popularity as park spaces, waterfront walkways, fishing piers, and new bars and restaurants with live music have opened up along the waterfront. 9th Ave Pier and Marina Grille have been a big hit, where you can enjoy dinner or a waterfront drink while watching the beautiful sunset. Fishing charter boats, party boats, mini golf, parasailing, whale watching tours, and kayak / stand-up paddleboard rentals are also available in this area. The home is still close to Belmar's Main Street for shops, bars and restaurants, and less than one mile to the ocean. As an alternative to the ocean, there is also a free beach along Shark River directly across the street from the home. Maclearie Park is also directly across the street- a waterfront park with a brand new playground, tennis courts, and a picnic area.
