Beautiful day in January on the marginal way. We took a nice brisk walk on the Marginal Way to Perkins cove and on the way back hats and gloves not needed. Sunshine was out and no wind, perfect for winter in January.

I love this walk, with the views and ins and outs. During low tide there are places to walk along the sandy inlets and look for shells and rocks. Marginal Way, completely paved and accessible, has been a favorite activity for decades. It's about a mile from the Ogunquit Center to Perkins Cove, but you can take your time and... More

If you like the ocean and watching the waves hit the beach this is the place for you. This is a mile walk along the ocean and rocky coast line. The walk is paved and there are benches so you can sit and relax. This IS the most beautiful place on earth (to me). I recommend staying at the Anchorage... More

This a great walk to take when visiting Oqunquit. The path is paved so walking is easy and even elderly who are in good shape will be able to make the walk. If you are there in January as we were be sure to bundle up, it can be cold!

A walk along the rocky Maine coastline of Maine - what more could you ask for? Breathtaking views, crashing waves ... You can walk right to Ogunquit Beach from Perkins Cove.

A great, leisurely walk that you can take halfway or all the way to the local harbor. Some great benches for sitting, reading, sunning!

Even on a cold winter day, a walk along the Marginal Way is wonderful. Dressed warmly, I enjoyed the rocks, the waves, the birds, the clear blue sky, and the other walkers. I stayed at an inn with direct access to this path, which was very convenient. Luckily for me, there was no snow on this late December day.
