One of the busiest and most photographed coves in all of Maine is called Perkins Cove. This southcoast Maine fishing cove is now a popular destination for photographers, fisherman, shoppers and hungry travelers. Perkins Cove and all of Ogunquit – “Beautiful Place By The Sea” was once a part of Wells, Maine. In 1671 a sawmill was built in Ogunquit by Josia Littlefield, an early settler. Perkins Cove was then known as “Fish Cove”.

The river flowing into the cove is called Josias River (aka Four-Mile Brook) – it meets the Ogunquit river near what is now called the famous Perkins Cove.  The cove was dug-out by hand to create a safe haven for Maine fishing boats. Erosion further widened the trench to create Perkins Cove.

Today’s Perkins Cove features a hand-operated drawbridge and the tiny harbor is home to several Lobster fishing boats, tour boats, sailboats and pleasure craft. Some of Maine’s most famous restaurants are located in Perkins Cove. They include Barnacle Billy’s (where photos of US Presidents may be found on the walls), The Oarweed, Jackie Too’s, and others. Many of these Maine restaurants are seasonal. Some restaurants offer free parking with validation. Paid parking is also available in the parking lot on the cove. The Perkins Cove parking lot will “sell-out” during busy summer months. Additional parking is available a short walk from Perkins Cove. Free, public restrooms are located a short walk from Rotary Square.

Shopping in Perkins Cove includes fine art, trendy clothing, Maine gifts and memorabilia and jewelry. Ogunquit was named America’s Best Coastal Small Town in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice 2016. Travelers visit this easy to get to and friendly Maine cove from every corner of the globe.  Perkins Cove activities besides sightseeing include lobster boat tours, deep sea fishing charters, sailboat rides, scenic boat tours and walking on the Marginal Way. The famous ocean walking path called “Marginal Way” begins in Perkins Cove and winds oceanside northeast to Ogunquit beach.  Please share your Perkins Cove comments, questions or reviews.
