This is an easy walk with stunning scenery. The highlight is Perkins Cove at the end of it. It’s great place to have the drink you’ve earned and watch the sunset over the harbour.

The Marginal Way runs high ground from town to Perkins Cove and has many benches to enjoy the spectacular views. It also provides access to selected areas at the water's edge.

I think dogs are only allowed from October until April. During the spring, summer and early fall, I'm pretty sure they say no dogs. Have fun!
