Nice views of the ocean and inlet. Approximately a dozen or so little tourist shopping stores, food, clothes, jewelry & crafts. Off season so most were closed around 5pm

Great little shops but parking is limited and you pay for parking. Easier to take the shuttle bus.The bus also gives you a tour of the area.There is also a great walking area above the ocean.

Yes. It's expensive. Best bet is park at your hotel and walk or take trolley. Lot us small and fills up fast, but there's another lot just outside of cove.
What do they have for hotels?

you need to look up Ogunwuit - that is the town of Perkins Cove. If you do not mine a 20 minute walk, please message me for a low cost option hotel - very nice too!
