Nice cove with a few shops but the parking situation is crazy, even in the morning on an off season I was surprised. They are really aggressive about parking there as it seems to be a major revenue for them. I’ve paid for parking before...More

No visit to Ogunquit would be complete without a visit to Perkins Cove.It's just nice to walk around down by the water and the boats. Lots of little shops to visit. Good restaurants if you're hungry. Just a fun place to visit.

Perkins Cove is definitely a place to go to if you're in Ogunquit, Maine. It's on the water with wonderful views of the ocean, boat rides and little quaint shops.

You can walk here from Ogunquit on the Marginal Way or a short drive from town to partake of the restaurants and the picturesque view. We were here in the fall and it was picture perfect.

The harbour has a charm of New England. Shops and restaurants border the cove. We ate at Barnacle Billy's. Delicious cold water lobster.

At the end of the Marginal Way. Cute little port with cute shops and fanciest pedestrian draw bridge i had ever seen. We purchased fudge at a friendly shop, but found it to be merely OK. Come for the view. Bypass the fudge.

We stopped by in the early morning and got a coffee and sat in one of the benches. Most of the shops weren't open yet. Parking is limited but the views are nice.

I don't know as I don't go in-season. The trolley doesn't run during the week when we're there.
