Life is better at the beach... Belmar Beach

Why Belmar Beach Is My Favorite Place In The World

Everyone knows the Jersey Shore and every beach goer has their personal favorite beach to go to every summer. I can safely say that I have been to every beach; from Sandy Hook to Cape May and yet, Belmar Beach is still my number one. Let me tell you why...

#1 The Food Strip

Anyone who has been to Belmar knows that there is endless food on the strip.

Coney Waffle (Located: 8th Ave)

Because Coney Waffle is famously known for their insane “freak shakes” and they are amazing. They also have some bangin’ coffee ice cream.

Jimmy’s Pizza (Located: 8th Ave)

This place has enormous pizza slices. Even though the Jersey Shore is known for its big pizza slices, this place has got it down pat.

Playa Bowls (Located: 8th Ave)

I can personally say that Playa Bowls has had one of the longest lines that I have ever seen for any food place in Belmar. There’s nothing better than eating a playa bowl in your beach chair!

7/11 (Located: 8th Ave)

When you’re not at the beach, you may see 7/11 as its typical convenience store self. But when you are at the beach and in need of a huge water bottle, a slurpee, sunglasses or a snack, it’s the perfect place to have across the street.

La Terrazza (Located: 5th Ave)

Not only does this place have huge pizza slices as well, it has a beautiful environment and great italian food. There’s nothing like dinner with a view on 5th Ave!

Dunkin Donuts (Located: 16th Ave)

I don’t know about you but something about being at the beach makes me want a large iced latte from none other than Dunkin Donuts. It may be all the way on 16th Ave but it still has us walking to it from all avenues!

#2 The Gazebo (Located: 5th Ave)

The Gazebo that stands in front of the lake on 5th Avenue is a known spot. Whether it’s teenagers doing their photoshoots or people having picnics, it’s a beautiful and memorable spot for Belmar Beach goers.

#3 Cruz Bay Cafe (Located: 5th Ave)

Even though this is considered food, I feel like this place deserves its own number. Not only is it a great food spot, but it’s located in Belmars new Taylor Pavilion. This is a special spot for Belmar Beach goers because we all remember Jake’s Crab Shack before it was taken from us by Hurricane Sandy five years ago. The Taylor Pavilion and its new cafe premiered this summer and the Belmar Beach people are happy to have a great place back on 5th Ave.

#4: The Rocks (Located: 1st Ave)

These are the rocks every Belmar Beach goer has either seen or stood on to look across at its neighboring beach Avon. Whether it’s for taking pictures or for fishing, the rocks are an amazing sight being so close to the ocean and the bridge between Belmar and Avon.

#5: The Pier (Located: 1st Ave)

It can probably be seen as a tradition at this point for Belmar Beach goers to take pictures underneath or on the pier. It is also an amazing sight to stand on the pier and look out over the ocean at sunset.

#6 The Avenues

Everyone who goes to Belmar knows the three most popular avenues: 5th, 8th and 16th. The main food places being located on these avenues may have something to do with it!

#7 The Memories

Overall, Belmar Beach is a place that you grow up going to. This beach is in a lively and entertaining town with so much to do. From sunrise to sunset, it’s a beautiful and heartwarming beach and it will forever be my favorite place.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
