We have the smallest coastline
in the country, and it’s just beautiful!  As New England is
known for, we have some rocky coastal areas as well as some beautiful sandy stretches of beach, too.

Rye NH - Sandy Beach

 

Our coastline offers some
wonderful scenery and beautiful peaceful settings along the coastal
route of 1-A which follows the ocean.  You’ll find great
fishing spots, as well as whale-watching trips and deep-sea fishing cruises in Rye Harbor

 

 

  Rye NH Rocky and Sandy Beach 

The drive along Route 1-A, Ocean Boulevard, is so tranquil, it just really can soothe your soul. 
There are some truly stunning homes along this drive, most were built
as summer homes in the Victorian times.  Today, many of them are
now used as year-round residences. 

Rye became
the summer playground for the rich and famous during the early 1900’s
for many years.  Many of the local residents today can trace
their roots many generations back to the early settlers of Rye.
