We chose a fall visit so this walk was a little chilly but it could not have been more beautiful. My camera was full and my senses on overload from the sound and sight of the crashing waves and rocky cliffs! The salt air was pungent and the views spectacular. We walked all the way to the charming little village... More

Great stretch of walking path - children were able to go out on to rocks and we all enjoyed the natural beauty of the ocean.

One of the most 'beautiful' places we have ever been. A place and time to 'think' and walk at the same time. Great place to take photos. Many, Many great memories...'enough to last a lifetime.

Beautiful walkway, better than Cliff Walk in Newport RI. Walkway connects beach to Perkins Cove. After the long walk to Perkins Cove, you can stop into a restaurant for a drink .

Perfect way to walk along the coast to view the waves, the houses and the scenery in general. There are benches all along the way to rest or just sit and watch. Some are tucked into little clearings or alcoves in the tress and bushes. It's a rolling, mostly paved walk manageable by nearly everyone.

We spent a couple of hours on this area. You can walk the path around for incredible views, or (at your own risk) can walk along the rocks and jetties. We chose to do that, felt like little kids and had an absolute blast. Definitely will go back!

The Marginal way is absolutely without a doubt the greatest area to walk, and to rest and the views are spectacular!!! There are benches all along the walkway to sit and read and enjoy watching the ocean...The rocks kids love to climb and it is a great place to do your daily walk. Whatever time of day you go there...

If you would like a tame way to view Maine's rocky coast, close up, this is for you. Well maintained path, beautiful views, comfortable seating along the way, and easy access to "rock hopping" should you so desire.

Great walk along the ocean with many opportunities to stop and enjoy the view, sounds and smells. There were also places to get down to the water which were great at low tide. We were not disappointed!!!
