I love Hampton Beach! I am from Mass but live in Indiana now. Some of my family members go there every year. We join them when we are able. If you want a beautiful beach and a fun place this is it. If you stay by the boardwalk and is a little noisy and crowded, but there are many places... More

Parking is $15 and you can stay from the early morning until later at night. Plenty of parking, facilities (only cold water in the shower though). During low tide their is plenty of room, but if high tide falls in the afternoon, you will get cozy with your neighbors when it is mid 80's sunny and the weekend in the... More

Hampton Beach State Park is one of our favorite beaches on the northern east coast! It is so beautiful! The water is clear and clean and the sand is soft! There are rocks to climb on and a little cove at low tide where you can find crabs and starfish in the tide pools. You can often find sand dollars... More

We had our first trip to Hampton Beach today and have to say it was possibly the nicest beach we've been to. Nice white sand, beautiful jetty and tide pools, clean showers and bathrooms. Our boys had a blast crabbing and boogie boarding with other children. Mostly recommended for families with children or those who don't mind a lot of... More

Hampton Beach is beautiful beach. The water is very clean and you can swim or wade out quite a distance before it gets too deep. Fireworks on Wed nights are a nice bonus

Stayed in laconia for 2 week vacation from UK. Had a day out at the beach and didnt know what to expect, but thoroughly enjoyed it, the weather was fantastic which obviously helped and despite the beach being very busy, we didnt feel claustraphobic for space, although I would imagine at the weekends it may be different. The sand is... More

Made a trip to Hampton Beach for a long weekend with friends. This beach is one of the nicest I've seen. Family friendly, lots of room where no one is sitting on top of each other. Incredibly clean. The water was clean and oh so refreshing. The strip with shopping and restaurants are across the street. No need to go... More
