The City of Hampton has two public beaches. Both are popular with local residents.
Grandview Beach is a natural area located adjacent to the Grandview Island Nature Preserve. There's limited on-street parking here and no services, but it's a nice beach. The best way to enjoy Grandview Beach is to rent one of the homes that backs right up to it.
Hampton's most popular beach is Buckroe Beach. It's a nice, wide, sandy, life-guarded beach on the Chesapeake Bay, where the surf is calm, making it a great place for families to enjoy the water. Kayak and peddleboat rentals are available and there's a playground for the kids.

Otherwise, the Crown Plaza Hampton-Marina and the Execustay at Heritage at Settlers Landing, both located on the downtown Hampton waterfront, are the closest hotel options.
