Perkins Cove, Ogunquit

#2 of 315 in Parks in Maine
Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
One of coastal Maine's many charming waterfront areas, Perkins Cove evolved thanks to the efforts of local fishermen who wanted to protect their boats. The cove is a conglomeration of what were once a separate river and inlet; after fishermen constructed a canal, erosion created the body of water in place today. You can explore the seaside and its host of dunes and beaches, as well as the town of Ogunquit, a former artists' colony home to shops, studios, and eateries. Be sure to try some fresh lobster, a regional specialty, from the restaurants around the cove. Discover how to plan a Ogunquit trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • So pretty here, try to walk if possible, parking is a nightmare. The best option is walk the Marginal Way for views and then eat when you get there.  more »
  • Many things to see. Restaurants right there with plenty of parking. This is also an entry to the marginal way. Great walk and view.  more »
