If you're looking for a scenic way to get from the center of Ogunquit to Perkin's Cove, look no further than the Marginal Way. This mile and a quarter long paved footpath runs along the top of the rocky shoreline of ogunquit and has great views of the cove and the main beach in OGT. There is also a little... More

We walked from Barnacle Billys to the lighthouse which was a fair distance to persons our age (senior citizen) :Luckily there werre many benches along the way to rest at.

The Marginal Way has scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the beaches and the town of Ogunquit and Perkins Cove. It is a beautiful place to watch the tides come in and out.
