Best Family Beach
Spanning 32 acres, Great Island Common’s beach is perfect for little ones. The combination of grass, playground, and picnic area also makes it tops with parents.

Located in the well-to-do Portsmouth “suburb” of New Castle, the Common is a 31-acre seaside park with a strip of sandy beach bordered by rocky outcroppings that block the Atlantic’s spray. Picnic tables, grills, a shelter with restrooms, a ball field, and a large grassy area from which you can look out across the ocean — with views of three lighthouses — make this a place for all to enjoy.
