Great beach for everyone. Kids have plenty of room to play at low tide. Boardwalk has all you could ask for, including Mc Donalds. Parking not cheap but convenient . Good time to be had for all.

We were at the beach during their annual sand sculpture contest. This was nice to see. Our visit was to see Josh Turner at the Hampton Beach Casino. We were early enough to enjoy the beach briefly before the show. WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN TO SPEND MORE TIME.

We love coming up here on vacation!! Beach is always kept clean with great lifeguards. Restrooms right on the beach make it easy to take a family of any age and they're clean!

Of course it is wonderful. Fireworks on Wednesday nights in the summer. Lifeguards on duty and it's kept pretty clean so very nice.

There's been a lot of improvements since the last time we visited Hampton Beach. It was absolutely beautiful. Crowded but beautiful.

Lots to do here - shops, junk food(fried dough!) arcade(lots of games out of order though), mini golf, shows, fireworks(Wednesday night!), playground, body surf. Sand drops off sharply in spots, be careful with small kids and tide going out. We like to park at southern end (near stone jetty) and walk up to main area for a day trip. New... More

Beautiful beach. One of the most heavily crowded beach I have ever visited. Getting parking is a pain. You have 15$ parking for one day near the beach or a little further you can park for 2$ per hour meter parking.
