I was told that this used to be an artist colony. While there are a few "artist shops" there, the entire place has gone down hill. I don't mind paying for parking at a place worth visiting, but there is no longer any class to the area. What a shame! Even the overpriced restaurants don't offer the same quality of... More

Perkins Cove is absolutely adorable. Small but definitely worth a peak. Charming and warm; all the shops are nice to browse and friendly staff greets you. Great hospitality!

Perkins Cove is surrounded by shops, restaurants and the ocean. It is the place where the marginal way begins. This also is where the lobster fisherman and boats come in to port. It is extremely picturesque and for sure the basis for many of the typical New England pictures.

Perkins Cove is much more developed since our last visit, about 6 years ago. There are several restaurants now, a pleasant coffee/bake shop, a harbor for lobstermen and others, and paid parking. It is still located at the end of the Marginal Way though. From Ogunquit you can walk to Perkins Cove on the Marginal Way or on Shore Road.... More

An old Ogunquite fishing port has turned into a scenic area of souvenir and clothing shops, food stands and two very good restaurants. Parking is almost impossible but , mercifully, Barnacle Billy's has valet parking.

Lots of neat little shops right along the shore. Pretty much any kind of novelty can be had. It was really neat that it was all sandwiched right with the marina and lift bridge.

Like a busy town square. Everything is happening here. Shops, restaurants, Marina. Book cruises for sightseeing. Great food! You definitely must try the liobster roll at Footbridge Lobster. Very definitely the best around.
