We were in town on our way up the coast and visited Perkins Cove so we could be by the water. It is quaint and very beautiful with some unique and quaint shops. It is worth stopping by and highly recommend.

Ended up here after dinner for a stroll through the stores, ice cream cones and watched the sun set over the cove. Beautiful view from the bridge and the teens loved the spot and took tons of "selfies"! We will definitely be back!

This place is beautiful! So quaint - like walking through a puzzle scene or calendar picture. We were there in November, so most things were closed (especially restaurants), but some shops were open. We enjoyed just walking around and taking in the scenery. We had lunch before we walked the Marginal Way.

We learned about the draw bridge when a boat was coming our way and nobody else was there to open the bridge -- so I did and I guess that's the job of tourists The area is beautiful and so worth the visit

Spent a couple days with friends in Ogunquit, one of the highlights is a visit to Perkins Cove, lots of interesting shops and just plain beautiful scenery, ocean all around and plenty of places to eat even tho some places were closed for the season, it was still worth the trip

Such a quaint spot with many shops and restaurants to stop at. Old fisherman port - can even take a fishing expedition or go on a lighthouse cruise.

Want to fill this page with terrible reviews to keep the crowds away from this special place. Visited today with my husband,Newfoundland and Bernier after walking The Marginal Way. Reflected upon the days we visited years ago when the large homes were tiny shacks. Times change. Want to keep this place just for ourselves.....

This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. A walk around the Cove, visiting the little shops, watching the boats arriving and leaving in such a beautiful location. A great restaurant for delicious sea food in he heart of the Cove. A Must See for tourists.

Beautiful little spot, quaint feel with some great little shops where we found some lovely, well priced gifts to take home to friends. Glad we had been forewarned about expensive parking. We choose to walk the mile or so from our hotel in Ogunquit. Arrived late in the day many shops were closing so went back the next day ,... More
