Ogunquit is in Southern Maine.The town has a nice feel to it with restaurants, shops and art galleries. There is a Trolley that runs the length of the town and stops at the beach as well as many motels.
Perkins Cove, once an artist colony and deep-sea fishing port it still has some of the same look as it did 20 years ago .( Maybe a little less art though) The cove is home to many fishing and sailing boats.
The Marginal Way is a path along the ocean and you will be amazed at how beautiful 1.5 miles can be. Running from Ogunquit to Perkins cove. The views are literally spectacular! There are numerous benches along the way – a must do while in Ogunguit.
The Beach The first thing you will notice is that there are no cottages along the beach. Ogunquit Beach is protected by sand dunes.The beach is made up of fine sand and is perfect for walking and there are many tidal pools for younger children to play in. It is considered one of the prettiest 3.5 miles of peninsula beach in the state of Maine.The following are snapshots of the area: Click on image to enlarge
