Because it is beautiful. Pay the prices to park and eat - or walk for free along the Marginal Way - either are enjoyable. A beautiful harbor on one side and ocean on the other. Quintessential Maine!

Perkins Cove is just that...a little fishing cove great for people watching; and to get there you have three choices: Walk the Marginal Way (a walking path along the water), take the trolley (about $2 a person) or drive...but it's crowded in August! The area has great little restaurants with terrific views and seafood, galleries, t-shirt shops, all kinds of... More

We stayed right in Perkins Cove. Lovely little shops. Fantastic places to eat. If you don't want to drive the trolly is always running and it is only $2.00.

A taste of the Maine coast can be found at Perkins Cove. A small harbor with recreational boats as well as lobster boats sit side by side. Has a wonderful ocean side walking path to enjoy or instead decide to sit and enjoy a drink with a few places to choose from. Parking can be a challenge so keep that... More

I enjoyed the fact that despite the cramped in feeling, the locale offers several good places to eat and an array of small shops to quench the desires of the tourist as well as the locals. The cove has a calming effect on one. Beautiful oceans views. Lots of boats . some offering small tours for reasonable prices. Take a... More

First we had the biggest lobster sandwich at Footbridge seafood stand. It was delicious! We had really wanted a hot lobster sandwich with melted butter, but they served the sandwich cold with melted butter. It had 5 ounces of lobster meat and we barely could finish it- very fresh and delicious. After that, we walked the Marginal Way all along... More

Perkins Cove is a nice place to spend part of the day while in Ogunquit. It has a pretty good array of dining and shopping options. Parking is a bit difficult as there isn't a lot of it and what is available is very expensive. Best bet is to dine at one of the two or three restaurants that have... More

Several lovely shops with different items than found in most resorts. Enjoy Jackie's 2 and the Oarweed for food and drink.

Took a walk along the marginal way to this town and ended up,taking a breakfast tour where we got some history of the area and even saw seals and porpoises! Small private boat with a man talking and not automated recording. Shopping was fun and the Lobster Shack was great for our fabulous lobster roll. Everyone is very friendly. Great... More
