Perkins Cove is definitely one of my favorite places in New England. The harbor, boats, shops, restaurants, ocean, and overall feel is classic Maine. While there take a walk along the Marginal Way for spectacular views of the ocean.

While visiting Ogunquit ME, we knew we had to have lunch at the Lobster Shack located in Perkins Cove. Parking is tight in this area, but we managed to find a spot for a small fee. Perkins Cove is a beautiful little spot where you can shop, dine or just sit and enjoy the scenery. You can also catch a... More

There were lots of restaurants i. This area of town. Parking could be expensive that people may not want to pay but depending on your hotel the Cove could be within walking distance.

For anyone visiting southeast Maine, Perkins Cove is a must. Walk The Margianl Way, a mile long walk along the breathtaking cliffs of the Maine coast and see why so many people fall in love with this area. Cute shops, restaurants, and darling harbors complete this amazing spot. Although it was just my husband and me, this is a perfect... More

Perkins Cove is a fantastic "suburb" of Ogunquit. Walk the Marginal Way, have dinner, then take the trolley back after hitting all the shops.

Perkins Cove is a great place to spend a few hours walking around. There are tons of great shops, restaurants, and ice cream places. There are several scenic boat rides that you can take. The south entrance of Marginal Way is also located here. Parking spots are hard to come by so if you drive, you'll need to park in... More

Nice views of the ocean and inlet. Approximately a dozen or so little tourist shopping stores, food, clothes, jewelry & crafts. Off season so most were closed around 5pm

Great little shops but parking is limited and you pay for parking. Easier to take the shuttle bus.The bus also gives you a tour of the area.There is also a great walking area above the ocean.
