New Hampshire Seacoast
New Hampshire's seacoast captures the essence of New England's oceanfront. In just 18 miles of coastline, there are long, sandy beaches, working ports, offshore islands, surf-stung rocks, and popular resort towns and villages that date back nearly four hundred years.
Portsmouth and the surrounding New Hampshire towns of Rye, New Castle, North Hampton, and Hampton, are rightfully known by Yankee Magazine as New Hampshire’s Magical Coast. A day on the seacoast might include nationally acclaimed theatre and music, biking, hiking, fishing, sailing, whale watching, bird watching, sunset cruises, tax-free shopping, walking tours, historic sites, antiquing, hayrides, sleigh rides, big name entertainment, museums, New England's largest water park, strolls along the shore, first-class dining and friendly people. The Seacoast of New Hampshire is a perfect vacation destination and a wonderful place to live.
