Loved the little shops. Our favorite was the Christmas Shop. Beautifully displayed and unique items. Owner was super nice and helpful. Wish there were less shops selling t-shirts and more selling local artist creations, pottery or other handmade items.

One of the most scenic spots along the southern coast of Maine, Perkins Cove. Shops, restaurants, fishing boats, rocky beaches, it has it all. Just park your car and don't miss anything. Be SURE to have a camera. Scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. You can even take a tour on a real live working lobster boat. Plan of spending at leave... More

If you like lobster, there are several located in the Cove worth a visit. Most are closed in the Winter.

A beautiful cove. Went on a charter boat tour along the coast to the Nubble Lighthouse and saw many beautiful oceanfront homes, sea otters, met some lobster fishermen and received an interesting history of the area. Lots of nice little shops and restaurants. I went to the Lobster Shack and had a yummy lobster Roll and the best clam chowder.... More
