I had a good time there sailing and with a rented SUP. I try to skip shoppings and malls, so i was glad there is some adventurous tours around the area.

What a great place, I try to go here every summer. The beach is beautiful, the boardwalk is full of arcades, little shops, and places to eat. They have bands play at the outdoor auditorium nightly in the summer, and fireworks every Wednesday. Love this place!

Well, you don't need me to tell you this is one of the finest family beaches in New England. The state rebuilt the bandshell, boardwalk and bathhouses to the tune of $20 million and they look fabulous. They even screen the entire beach every night so the sand is clean in the morning for you (but please, take your trash... More

Who wouldn't want to park their motorhome just steps from the ocean? Availability on the other hand forget about it unless you want after Columbus Day. That unfortunately is the reality of the NH State Park system. People can reserve 11 months ahead of timer and often what's leftover is bits and pieces.

Once again Hampton Beach is becoming one of our favorite locations when we need to get away, either for a day or a few days. The improvements done on the boardwalk by the state are amazing. The beach is always freshly cleaned and the overall conditions simply wonderful. I highly suggest a visit to Hampton Beach, even for just a... More

Nothing to dislike. Bring a wind breaker, sleeveless shirt, a book, food, water, and stay for the day. Even in Nov. it was warm and sunny. 65+ There are excellently designed bathrooms, great pergulas to sit under out of the sun, or lots of benches along the walk. So whenever you want to sit, you can. Easy access to the... More

I love the northeastern beach community, but we are very much the type of people to spend the time in the water and it was freezing. We spent most of our time lying on the beach, which was nice, but would have appreciated more time in the water. Too bad it's so cold, probably won't come back here!9

Passed by Hampton Beach on our way to Kennebunkport. It was raining and the place was foggy and gloomy. But that didn't stop us from appreciating the beauty of the beach. Shopping-tax free!!- was the best part. Thank God our tour bus driver gave us only 45 minutes to use the bathroom, get some snacks and explore the gift shops.Otherwise,... More
