Perkins Cove, Ogunquit

#2 of 314 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.

  • Beautiful and cozy area however not easy to park since it is so small. Better to walk there from Marginal Way and then take a toll through the shops and restaurants.  more »
