Nice NH Beach

NH has little coastline, but this will do just fine. The sand is clean, the crowds manageable and there is a lot to do.

A great, family beach north of Boston. You are half way between the Boston and the beaches of southern Maine. The park has an entrance fee, but it has clean facilities and a pavilion of picnicking. Beach gets crowed at high tide and on weekends. Minutes away from the Hampton strip.

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.
