Perkins Cove is a picturesque fishing and artesian shopping village located in the town of Ogunquit, Maine, on Maine’s southern coast.
Perkins Cove will take you back in time when the life was simpler. In 1898 the Ogunquit Art Colony was establish and the artists and fisherman lived sided by side in the fishing village.
Getting here is easy. Most visitors like to walk the Marginal Way, which is a mile long walkway by the ocean starting at the Main Beach and center of town and ends in beautiful Perkins Cove. You can take the seasonal trolley from almost anywhere in Ogunquit. You can take the local bus from our neighbors to our south, York Beach. While parking is limited, you can also drive to the cove as parking is available.
There are lots to do when you get to Perkins Cove. You can simply enjoy watching the ocean waves or watching the boats come in and out of the cove. You can enjoy an oceanfront restaurant or café or take food out and enjoy your lobster roll on the cliffs, Marginal Way, or park benches. There are lots of scenic cruises leaving out of Perkins Cove, including site seeing cruises around the beach and lighthouse, lobstering, and deep sea fishing.
A visit to the manually operated pedestrian footbridge is a must as is the Ogunquit Museum of Art located in Perkins Cove.
