There is always so much to do. Lay on the beach or walk the strip. Whether you catch a show at the ballroom or at the outside stage or simply sit and people watch - you will never be bored. They have a great playground for kids too. Covered in sand its great for the little ones...such a great idea!

The sand here is soft and clean like the gulf. Lots of beach shops and entertainment at night in the summer. Everything is well kept. Water today, June 26 57 degrees! Brr too cold for me but the locals tell me August is a good time to swim.

The new band shell is really nice. The beach was exceptionally clean. We went on a Friday in the end of June so not too crowded. Nice family place with beach, water, plenty of shops and amusements. Once the peak season is here can't really recommend it. Just too crowded. Hit it before or after for less crowds.

Hampton Beach is just a great place to visit year after year. We have been here 20+ years in a row. I love the boardwalk and the proximity of hotels/motels/inns to the Beach. We have never encountered any trouble and they just seem to keep improving the property year after year! Enjoy!

We were at Hampton Beach during the Sand Sculpture event on a sunny Saturday, meaning many, many other people had the same idea to go to Hampton Beach. We drove around in bumper to bumper traffic for 40 minutes trying to find a place to park and then decided to have dinner first (at The Old Salt Restaurant). Upon return... More

The beach is always a destination for sun and sand, some swimming if the tides calm. It's surrounded by lovely dunes, and I love that the bath house and snack bar are so clean.

Hampton Beach is our favorite day trip getaway. We come here several times of year with our children. I remember coming here as a child with my parents. We live approximately 45 minutes away. The earlier in the day that you get there, the cheaper the parking is. Every Wednesday during the summer there are fireworks. Daily during the summer... More

The water is cold but the beach is beautiful. Our visit to the East Coast was complete with letting my kids dip their feet into the Atlantic Ocean. It was a quick dip because it was so cold even on a hit day in June

One of the best beach in NH. Though water is in the colder side,its worth spending. Well maintained and clean You will find good place to eat near by. Lot of space to walk and enjoy. Enough parking space . there are events at time which makes it worth staying overnight.
