Spent an afternoon at Hampton Beach. Was a great time for all 4 of us. The beach was very clean, we were way down at the end (towards 1 N) which was not very crowded during our visit. To our left is where the tide pools and rocks are where lots of people were exploring. One must be careful in... More

The recent upgrades to the area, including a new bandstand ( Shell ), new bathrooms, outside showers etc make Hampton Beach one of the great family beaches in the country.

Beautiful, big beach right in the middle of town. The beach can be very crowded but there seems to be enough room for everyone.

hampton beach tends to get a bad rep, but they have really stepped up there game. While there still seem to be all different types of people that provide great people watching and entertainment, the beach is clean big and always a fun place to spend the day.

Hampton Beach is very easy to get to (101 runs right into it), there is usually ample parking in either metered spots or in lots that if you are early enough to get to will only cost you $10 ($20 if you're later in the day), and the meters themselves are currently $2 per hour, so for a 5 hour...

Hampton Beach provides so many opportunities from total relaxation to being very busy! If your not into just laying out on the beach, you can walk over to the arcades, concessions stands and stores. Always something to entertain you here from people watching to going to the bandstand. Clean bathrooms, new renovation a few years ago is still looking great.... More

Well, this beach is BIG, WIDE and awesome! There can be tons of people there and it's still relaxing and quiet. Low tide is awesome for the kids and for older kids, high tide with some waves is a blast. It's clean and convenient.

Hampton Beach Is the cleanest beach in the area. It is cleaned every morning and they do a great job. The multi 14 million dollar renovations really came out great. Go there to see for yourself. You will have a great time.
