Hampton Beach is a pretty, wide beach. Good for families as the water is very calm. Nice quiet atmosphere in October, but if you like a lot of excitement, most businesses are already closed by this time of year.

Nice sandy clean beach with parking and commercial areas not far away. So can lie on the beach for a while, get into the ocean, and grab a drink, snack, lunch not that far away. Can walk the stretch and go by places to stay, shops, eatery's, and drinking establishments. Pretty much has it all.

This is a great beach area and adjoining places to eat and shop. Weather was great in August. It's so busy parking can be an issue at times.

This place was nice with shops and usual spots to eat. Parking is steep at 2$ an hour but pretty open in the end season. Casinos are lackluster so don't really bother with them.

We explored several beaches the area. By far the best one was Hampton North beach, less crowded, easier to park and the beach is perfect.

Hampton is a decent beach, and it was clean the last time I was there. The unfortunate thing is that there aren't any good restaurants in the area. It will do if you don't feel like driving up to Maine. Avoid the tourist trap restaurants in the area.

Pay for parking for the day a couple of rows back from the beach. Closer parking requires feeding meters to stay long. Enjoyable beach and busy beach scene along streets crowded with people and shops. A milling, relaxing, beach place. Fireworks some nights but park early because too crowded to drive through and hunt for parking just before event. Seabrook... More

If you want to go to a beach while you are near New Hampshire this is the one. It was a super clean beach! It has many cute shops and a ton of food places! You need to eat fried dough while you are there! It is amazing!
