We walked to Perkins Cove every morning during our stay in Ogunquit, to get coffee and sit on the coffee shop's patio and watch the ocean for an hour before starting the rest of our day. There are some nice gift shops and restaurants there, and you can enjoy watching boats come and go. A nice little spot.

At the end of the Marginal Walk is Perkins Cove. It's always fun to browse in the galleries and chochkie shops. you have a choice of places to eat, snack, or just have a cup of coffee. The footbridge and the ocean all around make this place a perfect spot for a photograph.

Perkins cove is so beautiful, it was very busy when we were the full of sightseers. There's some great little shops and restaurants to get food. The view is fantastic.

I have no idea why this is considered "an attraction." Truly bizarre. The cove itself it nice to look at, but the stores are nothing special and the food didn't seem remarkable.

The harbor has everything you want on the coast, sailing, fishing, good seafood.... The Bunny Clark has several departures daily for fishing and there is also whale watching and sailing. There are many other vessels but I think the Bunny Clark is the most popular.

I have loved Perkins Cove every time I've been there to look at the many boats, to shop at the jewelry shops and Dock Square clothes and, of course, the best lobster around at Barnacle Billy's Etc.

Perkins Cove is a must-do during your trip to Ogunquit. Restaurants, shops, water views, boat rides, and the Marginal Way. Traffic and parking are ridiculous during the summer months, so take the trolley from wherever you are and save yourself stress.
