This is a beautiful spot. You can park your car worry-free, use the bathhouse, and grab a snack. The beach here isn't as crowded as the Boulevard and Casino area. You can also walk to this part of the beach and stay without having to pay (the admission is really for parking, and it's not like the beach is roped... More

We stayed for a weekend of beach fun. Boardwalk offered food and items of interest for a family. Lots of surf and a different kind of waves coming in to break.

Hampton Beach is famous throughout New England for being a very clean, family friendly, public beach. The water's cold but clear and makes for a refreshing dip on a hot summer's day on the New Hampshire seacoast.

Been visiting this beach for more than 30 years, and find it's still one of the cleanest beaches around. The water never has that funky stench you find at some of the Jersey, and NY beaches I've visited over the years. The new, updated beach restrooms/showers are always pristine, with not one piece of trash laying around. Only 4 hours... More

I love fairly close to the area, so I visit frequently. It used to have a reputation for being a pretty rough place after dark, but the entire boulevard has been revamped and is really quite nice, new bathrooms and changing areas, and even lockers to rent. The entertainment stage is all new, it's really a pleasant place to go... More

Always ranked in the top 10 cleanest beaches. Very crowded from end of June through Labor Day. Parking is always a challenge. Seafood Festival is held on the weekend after Labor Day and is worth the visit.

Was very impressed with the beach. It was very clean. I was there in September, so the beach was still busy But not crowded. The sun was shinning and warm, the water was beautiful, there was a small breeze. Loved every minute of it. Can;t wait to go back
