Perkins Cove sits right on the ocean. There are lobster boats parked right there. Also the marginal Way starts there.

Lovely small harbour town near Ogunquit maine. Lovely sea views, nice small craft shops and the lovely Marginal Way walk leaving from the Perkins Cove car park. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

The boats, the draw bridge, the wonderful shops, and the awesome choice of fun restaurants! How can you skip Perkins Cove? The best way to get there is to walk the Marginal Way from Ogunquit. You can always rest on one of the many benches...More
