“For kids only”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This was a nice place when I was a kid. Now it is a dump. The noise is unbearable, the beach has become dirty, and the commercial side has gone to the dumps. If you are a teenager , then you might find this somewhat exciting, or appealing. If you are a grown up and still like this place, you might want to take a trip to a real beach, or perhaps seek help. Between Labor day and Mem Day, the traffic is always insane. It is a good place to study human primitive behavior, as you watch the kids interact. Any notion of sanity is gone.

“Beautiful beach!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This beach is truly one of a kind, we have been here several times and love this beach! The strip of shops and stores is another story, it's not at all pleasing to the eye but we go for the beach not the stores and shops. I recommend this beach to beach lovers, it's always clean and you can walk for miles!

“One Great Beach”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Hampton Beach in New Hampshire is the longest beach for a walk I have seen in a long time. Beach is clean and well kept. You have to pay for parking in summer, but they have afternoon entertainment, large playground--all free. Fireworks on Weds in summer!
