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.

The Buckroe Beach fishing pier

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.
