Belmar Says ‘NO’ to Beach-Spreading, Other Shore Towns May Follow
Following other shore towns, Belmar has passed an ordinance prohibiting beach-spreading on their beach.
Now, if you're sitting there asking yourself 'what in the world is beach-spreading?' It's basically when people bring absurd, large tents to the beach.
This can cause overcrowding, and also gives minimal space to other beach goers. With this new ordinance, hopefully there will be more space on the beach and it'll feel less crowded.
The ordinance is expected to go into effect starting Memorial Day 2018. There are also signs all around Belmar beach to friendly remind other beach goers to not bring their giant tents.
They are welcome to instead bring umbrellas and small canopies (36x36) for small children and babies.
What are your thoughts on tents on the beach? I'm against them, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it!
