Town of Portsmouth residents are allowed free entry into the Town's official beach, Sandy Point Beach. In order for a resident to gain free entry, you must have a valid transfer station sticker for the current year or a seasonal Sandy Point Beach sticker. Driver's licenses are not allowed for access to the beach.
Beach stickers will be available mid-May.
Non-residents may purchase a four-pack of day passes at the Town Clerk's office or Sandy Point Beach.
Transfer Station Stickers
If you have purchased a transfer station sticker for the current year and are using the vehicle with the sticker, no other sticker is necessary for free entry into Sandy Point Beach.
If you live in Portsmouth and do not have a transfer station sticker on your vehicle, a seasonal Sandy Point Beach sticker is available at the Town Clerk's office with proof of residency and your vehicle registration.
Four-Pack Day Pass
The Town Clerk's office sells packets of four one-day beach passes for $35 cash. Four-pack day passes are also available for purchase at Sandy Point Beach. Regular admission to the beach is $10 Monday through Thursday and $15 Friday through Sunday and holidays.
