Perfect weather combined with beautiful scenery make a trip down Marginal Way a favorite activity when visiting Ogunquit. Panoramic ocean views at every turn and benches to enjoy. Walk ends in gorgeous Perkins Cove with lots of lunch choices!

One of the best walks. Don't miss. Beautiful homes on one side and the ocean and river on other. Great seascape. Beaches were packed with families. Swimmers, surfers, beach goers all having a good time.

Magnificent and easy walk along the ocean that goes from Ogunquit Beach to Perkins Cove. Scenery is fabulous and there are benches along the way to rest or just take in the view.

Dog's are not allowed as the trail is very narrow and on a cliff so for every ones safety and cleanliness of the trail I think this is correct. It gets very very hot as well as buggy at times so dogs wouldn't enjoy the 1.5... More
