We examine which p-groups of order ≤ p6 are Beauville. We completely classify them for groups of order ≤ p^4. We also show that the proportion of 2-generated groups of order p^5 that are Beauville tends to 1 as p tends to infinity; this is not true, however, for groups of order p^6. For each prime p we determine the smallest nonabelian Beauville p-group.
