I love the rocky coast of Maine. So no surprise that Perkins Cove is a all time favorite. The view at sunrise is awesome. But the view is just awesome. Go on the off season to enjoy the view and not the crowds

Parking is limited, so take a trolley if it's in season. Many of the shops were closed, but some had opened for the weekends. Nice harbor view.

The place was terrible, fishy smell, no open restaurant, the public restrooms were closed. There's a portable toilet that's almost full. We asked some residents and told us that it's seasonal. The best time to go there is summertime.

First visit from my summer place in New Hamsphire. Small walk around a couple of blocks between rocky shores. Cute shops and restaurants. Just walk, take some pictures and feel the ocean.

There's not a whole lot to see, but it's worth coming down here if you are in the area. It's a short walk from the town of Ogunquit. There are lots of shops and cute boutiques right there.

If the weather is forecast to be good, many owners get a jump on the season. It is a short season so any extra days mean money in the owner's pocket. Most of the shopowner's have websites so try communicating prior to... More

I don't know as I don't go in-season. The trolley doesn't run during the week when we're there.
