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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
