The beach has the perfect combination of some picturesque rocky areas and smooth sand. Not overly crowded, plenty of nearby parking. No beach fees!

We had rented a beach house right across from the north beach at hampton. I had never been on the north beach before. I must say I liked it better than the main beach. There were a lot less people on this beach and less people in the water which made it nice for the kids. There are plenty of... More

Hampton Beach is one of the best beaches I've been to! Close to the boardwalk, & has public bathrooms centrally located. Well maintained & for those of you with kids they have many lifeguards on duty all day. Also on Wednesday nights they have fireworks on the beach that are amazing!

One mile+ sandy beach, water is cold but it's on the North Atlantic. Lots to do. Fireworks every Wednesday night, live music in the shell every night. Hotels are expensive and sometimes a bit skeezy, but it's a tourist beach area with a short season. Plenty of good food to eat.
