This is perhaps one of my favorite spots in the world! The marginal way walking path meanders along the Maine coastline and provides beautiful views of blue green water and waves crashing against the shore during high tide. You don't want to miss this on your travels to Ogunquit!!

The Marginal Way runs from almost the center of town Ogunquit to Perkins Cove, a cute little fishing area, marina with shops and restaurants. The walk is safe and easy and took us about half hour and that was strolling. There are plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view. Great views of oceans and waves crashing against rocks.... More

If you love the ocean, walking Marginal Way will be a dream. Plenty of benches for taking in the ocean sights and sounds.

Stunning views. This was my first winter visit and there had been snow and ice, so I did not walk the entire way, as I have usually done in the past.

We love taking daily walks on the Marginal Way when on vacation in Ogunquit. Beautiful views of the beach and ocean, wonderful location for sunrises, and it is well kept by the Marginal Way preservation society. Bring your camera to bring home some memories.

Walked the Way every night from downtown Ogunquit to Perkins cove. Sometimes we stopped to climb the rocks along the way, other nights we admired the real estate along the way and ate dinner at the end. We either walked back or took the trolley back to our hotel.

One of my favorite places in the world! Breathtaking views along the entire walk, with plenty of places to stop and take in the salt air... take a picture or walk down to small little beaches...
