a very clean beach and lots of things to do. Shopping, dining, arcades, playground area, concerts and surfing. You can't go wrong with a visit to this beach. I grew up going to this beach and didn't realized I missed until I went back after being away for 7 years. Will be back again

Hampton is a beautiful beach. This is the second year we have gone for the day. We enjoy walking down the boardwalk. My daughter enjoys running in and out of the ocean.

The main part of the beach near the centre of Hampton was very well used - largely by families. The whole beach was kept clean and it was lovely to walk from one end to the other. The staff in the information centre were most helpful and the nightly shows on the Sea Shell Stage were interesting and a good... More

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 trash bins are always emptied, the bathhouse is new & monitored for cleanliness. Theres an information booth that has a ton of brochures & the staff is very helpful. The parking... More
