This is not a place for a relaxing getaway. Maybe on winter time, but definitely not on warm weather. The beach is extensive with three big bathhouses and a stage for events. There are arcades, gift stores, food stands, restaurants, rentals, hotels and one casino alongside the main road. It is a crowded place everyday, specially on weekends. So, if... More

The state park is lovely. A really, really beautiful white sand beach. Could have played out here for a day easy. There are some nice dunes that are fun to look at. A good facility with ample showers. Pavilion, etc. Go after 7 (closes at 8) and park for free to enjoy the beach at sunset. A great place for... More

We had a really nice day at the beach. I parked at the State Park entrance which is maybe 1/2 mile to the "boardwalk" area where the shops and restaurants are. So, you may want to park elsewhere if you don't want to walk forever to those services. Just so you know, if you park there, it is $15/day, and... More

After years of moaning about the hassles of beach going (so many around us have limited parking and packing picnic lunches makes me break out in hives), I am thrilled to have found this one. The beach is beautiful, the food is plentiful, and the bathrooms are clean. I have headed to the beach every weekend this summer!

We enjoyed out weekend in Hampton. The Ballroom was a great time. Food at the Boardwalk Cafe & Pub was great! Walking along the beach at night was very relaxing.

This is one large beach. There are plenty to see and to eat. If you enjoy a nice afternoon and some private time at the beach, this beach may be a little too crowded for you (It really depends on the time you go). there's a huge arcade that is suitable for the whole family.

Great beach for early morning walks to watch the sun rise and collect sand dollars! The water is a bit cold but that just makes it invigorating and refreshing!
