Perkins Cove

Originally a small fishing community and artists’ colony, the Cove is a charming area that consists of local independent shops, restaurants and scenic outlooks. Hugged by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and a small harbor on the other side, guests can picnic on the rocks while enjoying the crashing surf, stroll across the footbridge and check out the boats, enjoy picturesque dining with southern Maine’s most beautiful views, or book a fishing or sailing trip to enjoy land views from the ocean.

Perkins Cove is also the southern terminus of the Marginal Way, our famed cliff walk that meanders for a little over one mile along the ocean. The northern terminus is in downtown Ogunquit.
