Nice paved walkway along the sea! Great photo opportunities and gorgeous relaxing views...plenty of benches to seat on and enjoy. We went in September and it wasn't crowded at all but I can see how it would be kind of annoying if it's crowded and a lot Of people are walking along...a must do in any case though! The walkway...

This was the perfect, easy walk with our young kids after doing the 5 hour drive from NY. It's an easy coastal walk from Ogunquit to Perkins Cove. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the "rock climbing". It's stroller friendly and picturesque the entire way, with park benches situated every now and then along the path. We bought seafood at a small... More

This was a beautiful sunset walk. We saw so much, beautiful coastline, surfers, birds, flowers, gnarly old trees. I must have taken 100 pictures.

As it was rated as the #1 attraction we had to go. Easy walk from downtown. The walk itself is also undemanding, a rolling terrain. It's right by the cliff all the way to Perkins Cove. There are plenty of access points along the way so you don't have to walk the entire length. At Perkins Cove you can catch... More

Breathtaking. Don't miss this beautiful walkway. And be sure to get a lobster roll at Barnacle Billy's before heading back from Perkins Cove.

2,5 miles of the most beautiful walk on the Maine coast. Very well groomed, benches to rest and admire the view. Cannot find anything negative about this walkway.

Beautiful walk along the rocky coast but too many people make it difficult for some to pass comfortably and picture taking can be difficult unless you only use the "cut outs" made especialy for viewing - Was here years ago and thought it much nicer then - certainly a must see on your trip but next time, it will be...
