Belmont Shore  Restaurants & Sport Fishing Sign


Belmont Shore--The sign pictured above near the intersection of 2nd Street and Ocean Boulevard points the way to the Belmont Shore Pier. It is also close to the spot where Belmont Shore turns into Long Beach. Tall palms lining Ocean Boulevard provide a feeling of charm and elegance. Often in these trees you'll hear and see a flock of about 50 conure parrots indigenous to Mexico and South America. The birds are quite noisy, which you'll notice if you are at a stoplight waiting for it to turn green. Just one block from this sign you'll find the pier and beach, plus the Belmont Pool. Restaurants include Belmont Brewery and Chuck's Coffee House, home of the Weasel. .


Belmont Shore is an area of Long Beach, stretching along 2nd Street and Ocean Avenue on the southern most end of the city. Originally intended to be an Italian-styled community running along canals, only the connecting peninsula of Naples saw such dreams to fruition through the efforts of A.M. Parsons. When plans were scrapped because of cost and logistics, Belmont Shore instead became a charming beach community.  Just a few miles from California State University Long Beach,  the city boasts the busiest seaport, busiest public marina in the nation and convenient freeway access to Los Angeles. Residents claim they have found the best of all worlds in one location. 


Note: As part of Long Beach, the residential and business region of Belmont Shore doesn't have any hotels. Ironically, the area and neighboring Naples were built to attract tourists and did at one time have a hotel. Those were the good, old days where guests could exit the hotel and hop aboard a boat ride, navigating the bay.


Today, you'll find may Long Beach hotels just a few miles up the road on Ocean Blvd. A lovely Renaissance Hotel is worth checking out, as is The Westin Long Beach.
