Don’t confuse North Hampton State Beach with North Beach, the former is north of the latter, and known not only for its clean, family-friendly atmosphere, but also for its proximity to more than 78 flavors of ice cream at the Beach Plum. You’ll see its wooden lobster holding ice cream cones in its claws. Take note, this is the original Beach Plum (there are three now). But this has the best views.
Bonus, the North Hampton State Beach bathhouse was constructed in 2013, which is very young in bathhouse years.
