Perkins Cove
Vacation Travel Guide

Perkins Cove which includes a small town or village and street scenes as well as a small group of people

Just south of Ogunquit, discover a quaint fishing village full of charming shops, seafood restaurants and postcard-worthy ocean views.

If you want to experience an authentic Maine fishing village, visit Perkins Cove. In this enclave of Ogunquit, located just south of the town center, explore an array of shops, restaurants and scenic walking routes.

Shop along the streets of Perkins Cove. Browse through boutiques selling locally made wares and unique gifts. See local talent on display in the many art galleries in town.

For a fresh taste of Maine, stop for a meal in one of Perkins Cove’s restaurants. Most of the restaurants serve locally caught seafood. Try some of the town’s famous saltwater taffy in Perkins Cove Candies.

Admire the assortment of boats in the harbor. Many of these boats are active fishing and lobstering vessels. Watch them come in with their catch of the day. For a hands-on fishing experience, book one of the boats for a unique day on the water. Charter a deep-sea fishing trip or a party cruise on the Ugly Anne or Bunny Clark. The Finestkind offers cocktail cruises and scenic tours around Nubble Lighthouse in York. Try whale watching on the Deborah Ann.

Visit the famed hand-operated footbridge in Perkins Cove. If a tall ship happens to be entering or exiting the cove, you might have the opportunity to draw up the bridge yourself.

Explore the coastline of Perkins Cove and beyond along Marginal Way. The pathway stretches for over 1 mile (2 kilometers) between Perkins Cove and the entrance to Ogunquit Beach to the north. Stroll along the gentle paved path and stop at one of the many benches to admire the view.

Perkins Cove and its surroundings are a popular destination for birdwatchers. Look for colorful harlequin ducks and purple sandpipers. Other birds, such as sparrows and mockingbirds, are frequently spotted year-round.

Visit Perkins Cove throughout the year. During the summer, it comes alive with vacationers. Winter months bring a blanket of slow and a much more sedate atmosphere.
