Ogunquit or "Beautiful place by the sea", is best known for its three miles of white sand beach, but it has more to offer than just the beach:
Perkins Cove, its picturesque little working harbor, is home to charter fishing boats, sight-seeing cruise boats, whale watching boats, as well as a myriad of shops, restaurants and art galleries. The busy little village is a Mecca for people watchers. The nightlife during the summer months is lively, with entertainment, dancing, and piano bars.
The Marginal Way is a century-old oceanside footpath that begins on Shore Road and hugs the coastline for over a mile to just south of the Village Center, curving around a little peninsula and opening up to stunning vistas of sand so white you'd almost think you were in the Caribbean. Sit on one of the benches set along the walkway and enjoy the sight and sound of crashing surf against the rocky shore and the fragrance of sea roses which line the path.
Ogunquit is also commuter friendly with the nearest route 95 exits in York and Wells.
