I wasn't looking forward going to the beach with a two boys, ages 5 and 2. However, getting there was fairly easy. The only problem was the address on the website when entered in the GPS takes you to the boardwalk where parking is limited. The GPS WILL PASS YOU BY THE PARKING of Hampton Beach State Park, so keep... More

If you haven't been to Hampton Beach in a while it's time to go back!! The sea, the sand, the salt air!!! It's the perfect place to escape and recharge your soul!! The beach is beautifully maintained, nice clean bright restrooms, live music on the Seashell stage, which is perfectly situated in the middle of the beach on Ocean Blvd... More

First time here to really visit and play in the ocean. Wish there weren't so many cigarette butts in the sand, but I can only blame the other visitors for that. Definitely will come again!

The area has gone through a complete overhaul in the past few years. The beach is clean and the new restrooms/showers/locker rooms are very nice and well-maintained. There is a mix of families, couples, and teens, but everyone is well-behaved and the atmosphere is bustling. There's a playground for younger children and games and shopping for everyone. The beach is... More

My wife planned this as a surprise birthday gift. When I found out where I was driving to, I almost turned the car around. So glad I didn't. The cashier/manager? inside was quick and informative and even refunded our bank's fee for using the ATM. The guys on the boat really made the trip. They were hilarious! It was clear... More

Hampton beach is a great place to go with family to hang out on a nice sandy beach. It was pretty crowded by the water but I guess it's to be expected at a public beach on a 90 degree day in August. I would definitely go back.

Plenty of sitting area on the beach. Sometimes rocky sometimes all sand. Water is cold so takes some getting use to. No services on the beach so make sure you bring what ever you will need but there is plenty of parking.

My fiancé & I (23 & 24) come here every year. If you come here during the week, you avoid a lot of people and large crowds. Wednesday night all season long they do fireworks shows on the beach! The beach & boardwalk are much more quite, easy to walk down, take your time and really enjoy your time here.... More
