The Belmont Pier, located at Ocean and 39th Place, was rebuilt in 1966, and offers free public fishing with no license required as long as you stay on the pier to fish.

There is a wide range of homes in this area from quaint, single-story homes to multimillion-dollar mansions. Styles include Mediterranean, Spanish, Craftsman, and Beach Cottages. The majority of these residences were built between 1940 and 1970, but some were built even earlier than that. Many have gone through remodels and additions since then.
