Hampton Beach was once part of a continuous strip of sand running from Picnic Point to Green Point, including Brighton Beach. The Hampton Life Saving Club was formed in 1913, to patrol the southern end. However, construction of the boat harbour in the early 1950s trapped sand from the beach and erosion resulted. Beach nourishment was attempted in the 1970s, with little success; and the New Street groyne was built in 1986. This has trapped sand on the northern side and helped Brighton Beach, however Hampton remains virtually a shadow of its former self. Today the 900 m long beach is broad, but stagnant in the boat harbour. It consists of a few patches of sand where the Hampton Life Saving Club was previously located, and only a seawall, rocks and groyne up to the New Street groyne. Hampton Life Saving Club is located opposite the Sandringham Yacht Club between the Small St and New St Groynes. The Beach is well protected with a safe swimming area directly in front of the Life Saving Club. There are a few reefs just north of the club house, but these are easily visible from the shore. The Beach is popular with young families, and increasingly popular with Windsurfers and Kite Surfers.
