Perkins Cove, Ogunquit

(4.5/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
One of coastal Maine's many charming waterfront areas, Perkins Cove evolved thanks to the efforts of local fishermen who wanted to protect their boats. The cove is a conglomeration of what were once a separate river and inlet; after fishermen constructed a canal, erosion created the body of water in place today. You can explore the seaside and its host of dunes and beaches, as well as the town of Ogunquit, a former artists' colony home to shops, studios, and eateries. Be sure to try some fresh lobster, a regional specialty, from the restaurants around the cove. Using our international travel planner, Ogunquit attractions like Perkins Cove can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Put this on a must do list if you come here. Nice relaxing walk with pretty views. Beautiful gardens near hotels( in season). Benches to rest if you tire, small beaches if tide is out. 
  • Perkins Cove is so quaint and has amazing restuarants and shops! Definitely something to put on your list when visiting southern Maine! 
  • New England at its best! We took a ton of pictures, it was really lovely. Would love to stay here for a few nights.
