We spent today at Hampton Beach and it was great!! The beach is clean and the waves were great...we parked right along the water and made our way down. My 84 year old Mom and 7 year old nephew enjoyed the sun and sand on this clean strip of NE coastline. After our water time we crossed over and played... More

I love the beach! This year the water was very warm and it was very relaxing sitting on the beach..I like this beach because there are no rocks on it just a smooth sandy beach and plenty of places to shop and eat.

It has the most relaxing atmosphere, postive vibes and we enjoyed being here in outdoors. The beach is clean and stretched long. Beach is kind of crowded on weekends usually however you may not see too much rush when you go on weekday evening. It has many options for the people who love shopping, it has different food stalls ,... More

We went out for lunch at Hampton Beach to check out the sand castles. Busy June day before the 4th. Why do they collect trash and allow state trucks to park right in front of the sandcastles? Green and blue trash bins down the length of the boulevard. Not a very appetising smell or sight.

Hampton Beach was the classic beach of the 70's and 80's and 90's and remains that way today. The beauty of the strip at Hampton ? No corporate takeover. Still small family owned businesses and hotels and restaurants. It's a classic beach.

Beautiful, clean beach with relaxing atmosphere. Also, perfect for those who enjoy exercising outdoors. I live about 30 miles away and must say it's my favorite spot to go alone or accompanied. There's something for the entire family. Fine dinning, fast food, beach supply & jewelry stores, arcades. Lots of fun!

I visited the 4th of July weekend. It was a great boardwalk especially with all the old arcades. I didn't eat there but it had a lot of good looking restaurants. It's very kid friendly.

The state of NH has done wonders for this area in the last few years. The beach and sand have always been excellent. New bath houses, outdoor showers and buildings along the board walk have helped to make it a more delightful area now. You can walk far along the very wide beach, and the water is always clean.
