Rebuild Belmar Pavilions

Pavilion Reconstruction

On October 28, 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall on Belmar bringing the Atlantic Ocean into the Borough, completely decimating the boardwalk, pushing decking as deep as 5 blocks into town; all oceanfront pavilions were destroyed and over half the Borough was left flooded.


The Belmar Oceanfront Pavilions have always been part of the fabric of beachfront.  Click here to check out these beauties from Belmar's past! Concessions, restaurants, bathrooms and event space that are used all year round.
