So pretty and serene. People here are very friendly. There are lots of beautiful homes and gardens along Marginal Way. You can sit and admire the view at different locations there are several benches along the way. There are rock formations, different birds to see. At the beginning and end of Marginal way are shops and nice restaurants.

Beautiful walk - whether you are looking out to sea or back at the varied houses along the walk. My husband enjoyed the varied architecture.

This is a nice stroll by the sea with plenty of views and chances to get your feet in the ocean. Parking can be a challenge.

It runs about a mile from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach. Absolutely beautiful scenery along the rocky coast, with views of the lovely houses as well. It is narrow, and can get crowded, but is an absolute must.

This is THE place for a walk, stroll, run or just to enjoy the view of the ocean. You can get a peek too from home if you Google Marginal Way and stream their lighthouse webcam. It's almost like being there (without getting dive-bombed by a local seagull!)

Great path to walk/run on in the morning. Awesome scenery. However, it is very narrow (like 2 person wide), so don't expect to get a continuous workout in if that's what you are expecting.

Short, paved walkway on the rocky Maine coast. If can get crowded on the paved path. Many breathtaking views for photo ops!
