Visitor Reviews of Plaice Cove

Bob from UNITED STATES writes:

Located just North of North Hampton Beach. It is quiet and used mostly used by residents and renters on the beach or walking from across Rt. 1A.

* Climb the rocks & explore the tidal pools.
* Magnificent views.
* Steps away from Cinnamon Rainbows surf shop where you can rent surfboards, paddleboards, etc.

* Bring your aqua socks, it is a very rocky beach, painful to walk into the surf in bare feet.
* Rough surf. The waves are not high but the low waves are powerful and will batter you into the jagged boulders, especially if your footing is compromised by the sharp gravel walking surface.
* Small children will have a hard time navigating this beach. Parents will need to lead them by the hand and attend to them closely to ensure their safety.
