Logo   New Hampshire Seacoast
Yes! New Hampshire has a seacoast! It's squeezed in between the 1000-mile-long Maine coast and Massachusetts Bay's North Shore.




Many visitors think of New Hampshire and Vermont as the "landlocked" New England states, but the boundaries of New Hampshire were drawn to assure an outlet to the sea, even though its coastline is only about 20 miles (32 km) long (map).

New Hampshire's short but beautiful seacoast has several fine beaches, the popular honky-tonk summer beach resort town of Hampton Beach, and dignified, historic old Portsmouth.

In fact, the New Hampshire seacoast is almost all beach, with some rocky headlands and coves, and four state parks with their own uncommercial stretches of beach.

The Isle of Shoals is offshore, reachable by ferryboat.

(Vermont, by the way, may not have a seacoast but it does have the long shore of Lake Champlain.)
