The State of NH and the Town of Hampton and the HB visitors committee's have their act together when it comes to this beach. The water may be cold, sometimes too cold but it was clean except for a few strands of seaweed here and there. Got some really cool seashells also. The beach was always clean, especially considering all... More

Hampton Beach has a little bit of everything. I do have to say that this was the most crowded beach that I have ever been too, and I live in Florida.... it is a very wide beach so everyone has room to spread out. But, boy is it beautiful. The water is very clear, but also very very cold for... More

Incredible stretch of beach that is humongous! Lots of parking. A strip that is really geared towards beach life. Really fun strand of restaurants along the beach. A gorgeous setting and a fun place to hang out. Has a real family atmosphere to it. The best beach area we visited in our time in New England.

The beach is clean and there is plenty of room so you don't feel crowded. It was easy to access from where we were staying.

Best for early morning walks to watch the sun rise and collecting sand dollars. The water is a bit cold, but refreshing!

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
