Perkins Cove is an Ogunquit must see. It has several interesting shops , good eateries and wonderful views . It is particularly interesting watching the lobster pots coming in. The cove is also a start or end point for the Marginal Way. Parking can be a challenge but patience will pay off. We particularly liked the candy store and the... More

I remember when the artists were lined up where the parking lot is now ....but I digress. This is a must see .......lovely little shops and fishing boats. Watch the bridge rise to let the beautiful sail boats move in and out of this very quaint place. You also have your choice of several tasty places to dine. A must... More

We had a little shopping excursion at the end of our walk on Marginal Way. The cove itself is lovely and there were some cute stores lining the streets where we found a few deals. We will go back to Perkins Cove, hopefully for dinner

We enjoy walking around the little shops. They even have one specialing is 14+ sizes for women which you don't often see. Many good restaurants as well.

Cute shopping area and great restaurants. Located not far from city center, beach and Marginal Way. A must stop when in Ogunquit.

Very over rated area. Extremely touristy. Some unique shops but very over priced. The Lobster Shack is a small but good restaurant. Aquinnah has nice women's clothing but be prepared to pay a lot. Mountain Tops has a large assortment of sweatshirts and T-shirts and nautical gifts but nothing especially unique. The ocean views from this area are quite nice.

We went on two occasions. Early in the we were able to just walk around and enjoy the scenery. When we went on another day for lunch, it was mobbed. We had a long wait for lunch (but it was worth it) and felt a little overwhelmed with the numbet of people in the stores. Will go back but earlier... More

It was so nice to visit Perkins Cove early in the morning and watch the fishermen prepare to go out for the day. Then going to the quaint coffee shop at the end of the cove for my first cup of coffee and to sit outdoors on the beach watching the waves and the sea gulls was a spiritual experience.... More
