beautiul big beach

Larger than the smaller town beach is this expansive beach. I prefer the smaller one to the crowds here in Spring and Summer.

During a mild winter you will have this stretch of beach & path to yourself, relatively. If its clear and theirs no snow, stop in, parking is free. And go for a run. You will see horses and dogs on this beach this time of year. No tourists. Just locals. It's a nice flat stretch and you can get in... More

Have been going to Hampton Beach State Park Beach for decades. When the renovations were completed a couple years ago they created , in my opinion, the best state Beach in the area. It's clean, well kept, many boardwalk seats, clean well kept comfort ( bathroom) stations, with showers, a fantastic band stand, safety, places to set up Beach volleyball,... More

Avoid Hampton Beach like the plague in July and August, but do come back in September or even October. Lots of places are still open and the atmosphere is much quieter and more pleasant. Beautiful place to take in the sunset.

The HBSP is a great place to go on a sunny, hot day to cool off and enjoy the boardwalk and food. They have Monday night movies on the beach for kids. Wednesday night the fireworks. Every night in the summer music at the center stage. We go every year and always a nice way to spend an inexpensive day... More

We went here on Wednesday October 5 2016 when the sky was blue, the sun was shinning and the temperature was in the mid 70F/20C. There was no one about. Car parks were empty and nearly all the shops were shut (even McDs). The beach is large, really large. It relatively clean as it seem to have been swept. We... More
