Just a lovely walk down Marginal Way and there you will find Perkins Cove. Love walking around and visiting the shops lining the quaint streets of "The Cove". Aquinah has unusual and quality women's clothing, while the various jewelry shops carry a vast array of lovely pieces to accessorize your new outfit. Make sure you visit the one (oh dear!... More

Beautiful little cove, with restaurants, boats, shops, many things to do in the cove....sit and just watch the ocean, or the boats going in and out, take a cruise on a lobster boat, or a sail boat.

Perkins Cove is a fun spot to walk around and shop while taking in the beautiful scenery. We had great food at The Oarweed and at the Lobster Shack (amazing lobster rolls). The parking is very limited but we were on foot so that wasn't an issue. It reminds me of Bearskin Neck in Rockport.

At the end of the Marginal Way we ended up in Perkins Cove. What a quaint little town. We did some shopping, stopped for a cold drink and took in the beautiful views this little area had to offer. Will definitely be back....

Quaint little town/shopping area to visit. We stopped here before we started walking Marginal Way. There is a small-ish parking lot, but we were able to find a spot because it was a little overcast when we got there. The shops are cute and the store owners are friendly. The coffee shop (Breaking New Grounds) had great refreshments and baked... More

Walk and check everything! The town trolley has a stop in this neighborhood. A inexpensive trolley ($2 per adult)is the best way to go around Ogunquit (it is really a big pretty town). Also Perkins Cove is one of the end of the Marginal Way Walkway. Please do not leave the town without pamper yourself walking on this path. The... More

The picturesque pocket of Ogunquit has several excellent seafood restaurants, launches the sailing and lobster cruises, and has some fun shops to poke around - some touristy, some arty.

It's a quaint little village of stores but parking is limited and costs money. As with every tourist area stores can be a little on the pricey side but all the food it pretty good!
