Very, very, clean!

There is no alcohol allowed, and no garbage. Every night they come and clean the beach and rake it with a big tractor. It is kept very well.

Loved the beach it was clean and safe with plenty of space. Easy to walk onto the beach, the waves weren't that rough even though there was a storm approaching. Aside from very cold waters it was perfect.

Hampton Beach needs revitalizing! The town needs to start caring that tourism is its source of income. The hotels, the shops, the restaurants-all run down. It really looks like no one has cared since the 1940s, which is not an extreme exaggeration.

There were no signs indicating what that meant, so I opened the gate, drove in, and found a spot. Shortly thereafter, a guy on a golf cart drove up to tell me there were no spots. He offered zero advice... More
