Cute little area with nice atmosphere and a variety of shops. Parking is a bit of a headache, cost us $15 for 2 hours. Otherwise a nice little place to stop for a bit.

There are lots of fun little shops to visit, as well as many restaurants to eat at! Walk around and climb the bridge to enjoy the beautiful scenery! The only downfall is he parking situation, but there is trolley service, or its a twenty minute walk from downtown Ogunquit1

Great place to visit. A must, I would say. It is quaint and good to catch a snack, lunch or dinner. Some fun shops to purchase souvenirs. Must visit the pottery store with the beach glass store above it.

I have been here several times. It is one of the most beautiful coastal Maine. The marginal walk offers fantastic view of beautiful homes and naturally carved cliffs along the ocean. Park the car in the lot or anywhere near there, and walk around the quaint shops and waterfront restaurants. Take the lobster boat tour or sunset tour...you will love... More

We stayed in a house at Perkins Cove and loved walking to the shops and breakfast spots from our house. Many boating activities, several shops and restaurants.

This small area has good food, shops and views. It can be pricy and crowded, but is worth the trip - especially on the shoulder seasons of spring and fall.

The marginal way will leave you loving the Maine Coastline as you stroll behind the beautiful hotels and magnificent residences. The rocking coast, birds, water fowl and boaters are just a few things to enjoy on the Marginal Way. Have lunch in Perkins Cove.

Really disappointed with having to pay $4.00 for a parking space. We use to be able to park for free.
