Perkins Cove, Ogunquit

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Neighborhood
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.

  • Several of the top rated eating places are here. Cruise tours leave from this area and I needed sunscreen and it was easily accessible here. Overall, a good area for an hour or two.  more »
