We took advantage of a rare 60 degree day in February. It was just as wonderful off season as it is peak season....although a LOT less crowded! It is always so clean and well groomed. Throughout the year we pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the view!

Lots of pluses at Hampton Beach besides the beach itself and the water. The comfort stations are very clean and kept up with showers, lots of places to just side on the walkway with pergolas and a band stand with entertainment. Across the street are many places to eat or take out, cold drinks, arcades and a bit of honky... More

We visited this beach in December, so of course it was chilly. With a jacket on we were able to walk the beach looking for sea glass, shells etc. It's a beautiful beach that goes on forever...... The sand is clean. There were very few people there. It was fun to see all the gulls etc.

Hampton can be pretty commercial and busy during the summer but go in late September on and it's a different story. During September most places are still open with less crowds. Things button up in October but the beach is still picnic perfect.

New Hampshire really has a lot to offer, and this beach is one of those beautiful sites. Lots to offer on the same street as well.

I have been coming here for years and it's always a great time. I love the water and the sand. The rocks are fun to climb on. And the boardwalk is the best. They is so much to see & do here. If you're trying to find something fun to do during the summer, I recommend Hampton Beach :)
