If you are in the area do not miss it BUT try not to go at night as it is so busy with people visiting the eating houses.Early and late season you can enjoy a quiet,peaceful place,nice little shops and plenty of places to eat a meal or snack.

I remember visiting Perkins Cove over 30 years ago, and it was a beautiful fishing village with a really authentic feel to it, and I was anxious to show this to my family as we finished our Marginal Way stroll. Unfortunately, this little gem has become very commercial, and in my mind has lost a lot of its genuine charm. It is still a lovely little harbor, but the traffic, stores and scores of tourists have taken away some of what made it so special.

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.
