Tucked in a safe harbor from the ocean is Perkins Cove. Walking through the little village gives you a sense of what a fishing village would have looked liked many years ago. Fishing boats aplenty are moored in the cove with a picture perfect waterfall in the background adds to this unique Maine village.

Walking through this quaint and still-functioning lobstering/fishing landing was a great pleasure. We ate lobster at Barnacle Billys, where we could watch the lobster boats come and go, and choose the denizen of the deep were to sup upon with wine and beer before the wood fire. Our two lucky lobster were delicious and well-sacrifieced. Geary's, the local beer, was excellent and complemented the sweetness of the lobster in fine fashion.

Great collection of shops (art, clothing, pottery, candles, jewlery) and a few restaurants (noteable: MC Perkins Cove, Breaking New Grounds Coffee, Lobster Shack). Used to be a bunch of fishing shacks until the 1940's or so. Boat/sailing tours available, entrance to Marginal Way.

You can sit out on the deck, watch the sun set, eat the best seafood Maine has to offer, see the boats dotting the cove and be thankful that you have the kind of life that would allow you to see such a place. It truly looks like you are inside a painting.

We've visiting Perkins Cove both in the high season (Labor Day) and in March/April quiet time. It's much more fun in the quiet time. You have a lot easier time parking, etc. One neat thing is that you can open and close the drawbridge yourself (if a boat is coming into harbor). Adults only--no kids allowed to play with the drawbridge. We also noticed the Perkins Cove restaurant and walked in. Very, very beautiful setting. Didn't stay to eat or drink, but it certainly looked inviting.
