#1 of 684 in Things to do in Maine
Take in the salty air and sweeping views of the Atlantic coast along , a paved oceanside cliff walk. The 1.6 km (1 mi) path, stretching from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach, hugs the quaint artist community of Ogunquit, full of seaside eateries and shops. Zip up your windbreaker and head out on foot along the scenic trail to admire the dramatic rocky coastline dotted with lighthouses and whitewashed cottages. Stop for a warm cup of New England clam chowder at the famous Cliff House in town before you leave. Due to the area’s high parking fees, plan to park in town and catch a local trolley to the coast.

  • This is a beautiful, well maintained path along the rocky coast. Benches are located in various places for rest and just looking at the ocean. It is a lovely walk for all ages.  more »
  • A pleasant walk on the coastal path from Marginal Way to circumnavigate the promontory of Israel's Head, beaten by the winds, and discover a dazzling panorama!

Where to stay in Ogunquit

Main Street holds the heart of the action in Ogunquit, and most of the town's inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels sit on this street or close to it. A handful of establishments line Beach Street, which provides access to the town's highly regarded stretch of sand. You'll find additional bed and breakfasts as well as numerous vacation rentals in the form of houses, condominiums, and cottages in the area between Main Street and Israel Head Road on the coast. This area takes you away from the bustle of the center of town but still provides convenient access to Ogunquit Beach to the north and Perkins Cove--a small marina featuring a few restaurants and lobster shacks--to the south.
