This is a quaint place to shopping,eating. It has trendy clothes, jewelry and home decor. Barnacle Bills is a long time food establishment there. There is a cove with... a incredible walk that starts at this cove, called The Marginal Way. You do not want to miss this walk if you like the beach, old houses or landscapes.

We love to wander through Perkins Cove whenever we walk the Marginal Way. Parking during the season is sporadic and expensive in the "public" areas. Great shops and restaurants with great views and not-so-moderate prices ...but this is a case where you get what you pay for.

A beautiful little harbor in the neighboring town of Ogunquit. Lots of shops, ice cream shops and restaurants. Also, sailing and lobstering cruises. The famous Marginal Way starts here too. Can get very crowed at peak times, suggest visiting early in the day or off season.

When coming to Maine, this is a must see area! It's picturesque, eclectic and fun! Great food, great walking path along the seashore and lots of great unique shops for that memorabilia you are looking for, or for great gifts for others. Shopping is a must have here.

Popular area with restaurants, galleries, shops etc. Starting point for the "Marginal Way" - a mile long walk along the ocean.

We travel here often during our stay at the Nubble. It is very scenic, has the beautiful Marginal Way which leads to the Ogunquit Beach, nice dining locations and gift and clothing shops. The bridge over the Cove is a point of interest; it is a great location for photos.

Replete with quaint shops, unique eateries, and a scenic drawbridge, Perkins Cove is a great destination for an hour, or a day! You can walk along the Marginal Way, go on an Sunset Cruise, or sit on a bench an watch the sea.

The area has cute shops, an awesome scenic boat tour around the Nubble Lighthouse and yummy restaurants. Parking is expensive and can be hard to find, but in the summer, there is a shuttle bus from Short Sands; highly recommended.

Food scenery and more. A must see in your trip to Ogunquit. Perkins cove is at the end of Marginal way which is a mile long scenic walk along the rocky coast of Maine.

Walk the 1 1/2 mile Marginal Way between Perkins Cove and Ogunquit Village for spectacular ocean views. Check out the shops, art galleries, restaurants and cruises of Perkins Cove. We highly recommend the Silver Stream harbor sailing cruise.

Ogunquit's quaint harbor is where lobster boats and fishing vessels color the waters with their daily departures and returns. Restaurants and shops line the water's edge where once only fishing shacks stood inviting you to enjoy this historic setting and the local foods and crafts.

It was your typical New England fishing cove, and in many ways it still is...ok, so some shops and restaurants have been added, but it is still pretty quaint and you can come down at sunset and see the tuna boats come in..the footbridge is raised, and in she sails..if you are lucky enough to see a 500 to 1, 000 pound tuna on board, you can watch as it is unloaded onto a refrigerated truck to be processed as it drives to Logan airport and shipped halfway around the world...

New England village personified. Can get a bit crowded in season. Make sure to take a photo on the bridge.
