It was pretty darn cold considering spring arrived a month ago but it snowed overnight. It did give me the serenity and solitude to feel like I was the only one on the beach though. Cold ocean breeze, crashing surf, huge flat expanse of white sand, it's hard to imagine the smell of sunblock and laid out bodies everywhere in... More

Plenty of clean family beach. Water is so clear you can see your feet quite a ways out. Some days you can find shells and sand dollars. Bathrooms can get dirty by the end if the day but that's expected at the beach. Parking is $15 for the day. Half that if you are a state employee. You can walk... More

Love to go to the beach in October. No crowds. It is a very clean beach-it is very relaxing to go sea glass hunting. The small shops may be closed-yet there are plenty of shops a short drive away. Make Hampton Beach your "home base" and plan day trips from there. First and foremost, save some time to just sit... More

The beach is nice and quiet, clean and if you are lucky enough to get a day that's 75, sunny and a light breeze you can play on the beach all day long. The shops and restaurants have limited hours after Labor Day so be aware that some of the things you like to do may be closed for the... More

Lots to do for kids but relaxing for adults. Water is colder than some other beaches I've been to. Very clean and well maintained

The beautiful, pristine water was absolutely gorgeous! The waves were supplied by nature, but the sandy beach and boardwalk were clean and enjoyable, too. I appreciated the restrooms; they were clean and stocked.
