I went to this beach today with my friends. When we went in the water, there was a ton of seaweed. On the ocean floor, floating in the water, on the sand, in my bathing suit, everywhere. There were also some monster waves, knocking people down. The lifegaurds could at least put up the yellow flag (swim with caution). They... More

The Beach and Park were very clean and well maintained. The kids playground was great, even for my toddler!

I remember Hampton being quite dirty when I was growing up, but I haven't been in years. THe beach was clean, the water was clean and even the bathrooms were clean. I was impressed with what they have done with the place.

Everytime we go we have a good time. Plenty to do. Locals normally skip the main strip because all the shops are the same, over priced and packed but the beach it self is very nice!!!

Had a great time at the beach for a second year in a row. We did have a family member who required shade and we were counting on utilizing the covered pavilion picnic area as a staging area. We arrived early enough to save a table however the pavilion was reserved for the day by a wedding party. This is... More

I'm accustomed to vacationing in New Jersey, so I wasn't sure what to expect in New Hampshire. This beach is so beautiful. The water was so clean and the beach was relatively peaceful. I especially enjoyed not getting attacked by seagulls. The public bathrooms are so clean and very close to the beach. The only downside is that there is... More

This was a very clean, well cared for beach and facilities? We enjoyed the live band at the pavilion. We felt safe walking along the street as traffic was very respectful of the crowd.
