The Marginal Way is such a lovely treasure, and the efforts of local organizations to protect the shoreline, restore native plants, and provide a wonderful, peaceful walk between Ogunquit Beach area and Perkins Cove are greatly appreciated. This place is a treasure.

If you go to Ogunquit, you should visit the Marginal Way. It is a very nice leisurely walk, and it extends all the way down to Perkins Cove. You walk by ocean views and rock formations. Be sure to bring a bottle of water to drink and wear a hat if it is sunny. There are benches to sit on... More

Loved our walk along marginal way. It went from overcast to very hot while we were walking, but we had water and there were benches to stop for a rest, so it was nice. Great views and ocean breezes.

Its the best, I try to go each year. The view and relaxing feeling is great. Is there a better place I do not know of it. It is the best of the rocky shores Maine.

I have been coming here since I was a little girl and now that I live in Virginia I especially appreciate the beauty of this walk along the ocean. It is a very special place!

Beautiful photo-ops! Great place to take a brisk walk, if you wish, or a leisurely stroll. There are places to stop and sit and people-watch or contemplate. You make your own experience here. It's that versatile!

Ogunquit is a great destination! In just 3 hours we walked and explore around the Perkins Cove area (small and picturesque shops) extending our walking experience through The Marginal Way Walkway. How delightful time enjoying the smooth hill with romantic benches along, beautiful gardens, humungous rocks and energetic pedestrians (facing the Ocean all the time). Great contrast at the end,...

Marginal Way is a great way to spend an hour or so in Ogunquit. This oceanview path is a pleasant little walk with great views of Ogunquit Beach, and then, further on, of the ocean. Adding to the scenic splendor are the beautiful homes along the way and the thoughtful landscaping on the path itself. It ends at Perkins Cove... More

This was a great walk along the cliffs to see beautiful views of the water. We walked a little before sunset and the views were amazing! The path can get a little crowded so just take your time.
