These 10 New Hampshire Lakes Have Beaches That Rival the Coast

The ocean is magnificent, and in New Hampshire we’re proud of our coast. But let’s be honest – the water is freezing, the waves are often rough, and our few oceanfront beaches get really crowded. Luckily for those of us who live inland, we have plenty of lakes with beaches that may even be better than the ocean! Here are a few of our favorites. Note that many of these lakes span more than one town, so we’ve listed the town with the primary beach mentioned for your geographic reference.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
