Fun and pretty but not for those with any type of mobility issue.

So many beautiful shops and things to see. Restaurants, boats coming and going and even boat trips to Nubble light and to see how lobsters are caught. One of the issues I... read more

So many beautiful shops and things to see. Restaurants, boats coming and going and even boat trips to Nubble light and to see how lobsters are caught. One of the issues I noticed is that all of the shops are very small and many of them are up or down a flight of stairs. I'm sure they are exempt from... More

Perkins Cove is a nice walking destination at the end of, take your choice either Marginal Way or Shore Rd. in Ogunquit. Very pretty location with a nice breeze off the ocean. Shops and restaurants are just ok.

This was our first visit. Very clean parking. We watched the fishing boats leave the cove. We watched the sun rise. Looked at all shops. Nice to see beautiful local artisans work. Will definitely visit again !

I wish we'd been able to spend more time in Perkins Cove. It was adorable! Cute shops. The boats in and out are quaint. Fun times were had by all!

You can either walk from Ogunquit to Perkins Cove along the Marginal Way.It is an easy walk along water with plenty of places to stop and sit and just enjoy the view or climb down to the beaches or the rocks. At both ends you can enjoy the many shops and restaurants.

Love it here. Whenever we go to Maine, we visit here. Parking is easy and convenient. Never miss going on the Finest Cruises. Barnicle Billy's is a favorite. Never miss the Scully Art Gallery.

Not much parking available. Suggestion = take trolley south or walk to this section via Marginal Way. Grab a lobster roll or, my favorite, a lobster BLT. Take a stroll over the draw bridge and walk through the adjacent neighborhoods if you like viewing property and landscaping ideas. Also so two hens and 11 chicks (turkey) walking from Cove back...

This quaint little cove has several shops and restaurants and is the epitome of Maine. It is fun to stroll and take in the views. The trolley stops here and there are opportunities to sail the ocean.

This is a great stop on the way up the Maine coast and one of my favorites. The shops are unique and you are sure to find a special gift for anyone. We often buy Christmas presents for hard to buy for people. A couple of notes. First parking can be tough. There is a dirt lot on the left... More
