North Side Park or “Plaice Cove” is a small, rocky beach located along route 1A in North Hampton, New Hampshire. Primarily a resident beach (resident stickers are required), North Side Park has sandy sections at low tide, but space is greatly limited at high tide. The right side of the beach is perfect for families, with limited rocks and a gently walk to the water. The left side of the beach is rocky and great for exploration. If vacationing in the area, this is a quiet alternative to the other busy local beaches during the summer months..
