Seabrook Dunes and Beach is no secret to those who live or vacation along its shores, and there are always kids splashing in the waves or building sand castles. Just down the coast from the popular Hampton Beach State Park, Seabrook is generally a quieter and less crowded beach than its neighbors, likely due to it being less developed. There are no trashcans, restrooms, or services available on the beach.

Access to the beach is easiest for residents and vacation home renters because parking near the beach is very limited, so be sure to pay attention to posted signs. Public parking with a restroom may be found along Route 1A, but it requires a bit of a walk across the highway and down side streets in town to reach the shore. This may be less convenient if you like to bring your beach chairs and have a lot to carry, but it’s worth it if you’re looking for a beautiful, sandy beach to relax or play on. Fireworks, alcohol, glass containers, open fires, and motor vehicles are not allowed on the beach, making it a family-friendly place to visit. Families return year after year to enjoy swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and walking the 2 miles of beach found here.
