Nice town. Free nearby parking is sparse, need to get there early. There is paid parking across the main street: 1/2/3 hrs $ reasonable. The walk is easy & scenic. I saw a surf boarder do a head stand.

Just a beautiful stroll along Maine’s coast. Fantastic views, beautiful ocean front homes, all ending in a perfect spot for lunch, dinner, a boat ride, some fishing, or even a little shopping.

There is nothing marginal about it! Known by the locals, this walk gives you a great experience depending on the time of year. Every tour is different but you will find your FLOW.

I must have walked the Marginal way 2 dozen times on our trip last summer, and couldn't wait to experience it in winter. Still as beautiful. It's about a 20-25 minute walk from end to end. Charming Perkins Cove on one end and downtown Ogunquit...More

One of the best attraction at Ogunquit is Marginal Way. Especially during the summer where you can get up early and experience the mile walk on the border of the ocean. Wildlife, boats and more!

Although visiting the Marginal Way in the middle of winter may be challenging, the recent mild weather allowed for reasonable conditions on the pathway. There were icy stretches but everyone we encountered along the way appeared to enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. Just beautiful.
