Perkins Cove is at the end of Marginal Way so after you walk the Way you can relax in one of the restaurants or do some shopping in one of the stores. It's a touristy location but we had a very nice afternoon there. And if you don't feel like walking back to Ogunquit, you can talk a trolley, which comes every 15 minutes or so.

Since we stayed at the Riverside Motel, we didn't have to worry about the parking. Yes, some shops were a bit expensive but there was a good mix with those that were not. The only "bad" thing is that the Cove closes down at 10:00 pm. We spent evenings relaxing by the docks and overlooking the start of Marginal Way. It was very safe!

A perfect little man-made cove, with everything you could ask for. A place to find great sea-food, shopping, whale watching tours, a lobster-trapping tour, trips around the nubble, entrance to the Marginal Way, and deep sea fishing, is all tucked into this quaint little cove.

We walked the Marginal Way from the beach town district into Perkin's Cove. Cute little shops and great lobster. I had a very good lobster roll and my husband had 2 lobsters for $12.95 from a lobster shack---no tables, just order from outside and eat on the dock. Fun way to spend an evening watching the drawbridge and the boats return for the night.

This is one of my favorite little nooks anywhere. It is so adorable. We took a lobster boat from here and loved every minute. It is a great place to sit, relax, and watch the boats come in:) a must see for sure!!!
