As one of the few beaches in New Hampshire, Hampton Beach was crowded. No parking. No tranquility. We weren't interested. But, I'm sure it was beautiful.

If you have an RV and can get a vaunted spot, this is definitely one of the most unique places to camp. Right on the ocean with nice salty breezes, and a short walk to the best beach around. Also a short walk to the strip, great place to stay.

I live across the marsh from Hampton Beach and I never go here. The beach is filled with police which is a good thing due to the people that come to the beach here. I would advise families with youngsters to go elsewhere. Late Teens and up should be fine if you like crowds. Also check your meter multiple times... More

It is a great family beach during the day. The surf can be rough and the water cold though, but it is New Hampshire after all. The board walk is much better than it was 20 years ago. The parking is limited in the spots and it takes a while to drive down the main road with people looking for... More

We love the beach and the boardwalk. We have been enjoying this beach for many, many years, and the shops are always fun to check out. I do not like that there are so many inconsiderate smokers, and cigarette butts everywhere, and I really dislike the vulgarity of the souvenir items in the little shops. When travelling with children, this... More

You really can't beat Hampton Beach for a great beach to spend a day or weekend. It is very clean, bright, safe, and exciting. On the beach and sidewalks there is no trash. Some of the restaurants has overflowing outside barrels, but nothing too bad. All the common areas such as bathrooms, concert area, signage for the streets all look... More
