NH Seacoast

New Hampshire's gateway to the Atlantic

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.

The Seacoast Region is the southeast area of the U.S. state of New Hampshire. The region stretches along the Atlantic Ocean from New Hampshire’s border with Salisbury, Massachusetts to the Piscataqua River and New Hampshire’s border with Kittery, Maine. The shoreline is generally very rocky and rough in nature, although a few sandy beaches have been created using jetties/groins. The Seacoast Region of New Hampshire stretches as far west as Epping.

The Isles of Shoals—White, Seavey, Lunging, and Star—are a short ferry ride out into the Gulf of Maine and are considered to be in the Seacoast Region. Collectively, they provide five additional miles of New Hampshire coastline.
