Great beach at low tide. It's has a steep drop off at high tide that makes me nervous with kids. You can see the grade change in the sand at low tide. When the tide is out the water gets deep much more gradually.

The beach is a beautiful long sandy beach I have not been here for years and it is still the same. Several new condominium have been built through the years but it is still the honky tink beach it always was.

We love Salisbury Beach in every season. Today we were excited to see a young seal resting on the beach, as well as loons in the water, a Bald Eagle and two mounted State Troupers on the beach. Always clean and well maintained year round.

And Salisbury Beach is a great place to spend a day. Not just in the summertime, but any time of year is nice (though summer is exceptionally nice). Traffic can be a problem during summer weekends, so plan accordingly.

We hadn't been to Salisbury Beach in 30 years, and the day we traveled was a chilly October day, but the beach is still pristine and pretty. The boardwalk was mostly empty because it is off-season, but a number of dining outlets, entertainment and shops...More

Great for children of all ages! Lifeguards on duty during summer months. Now much slower pace to stroll along sand. Wonderful to watch waves after storms. Plenty of parking found at the state reservation and free during midweek. Fees still in effect on weekends.

We went to Salisbury beach to see fireworks. The parking lots were expensive and the boardwalk seems to much like what we were trying to get away from so we drive several blocks away and parked along the street near a public access. This area...More

Salisbury beach is big beach which I was positively surprised. The sand is perfect and water is good once you get in. It's busy beach but less crowded then Hampton Beach. I would definitely recommend to visit this beach.

My husband and I stayed at a campground nearby and we took a walk on the beach in the morning. Its a cute beach , a little dirty. They had a small boardwalk didn't seem like much going on.

I would call Salisbury Beach State Reservation Campground, they will be able to either answer the question or let you know who can. I've sat on the beach in November and watched the horses being ridden on the beach.
