Amazing walk overlooking the ocean. Stunning views of the ocean, boats and large homes. There are benches along the way and many beautiful photo opportunities. We followed the trail to Perkins Cove for some shopping and lunch before following it back to our car. The only con is that this is a very trafficked trail. We will definitely visit this trail again!

One of the most beautiful views in the world- if you don't mind sharing it with hundreds of others at the same time. A perfect spot for photography and a nice easy stroll with family.

Too many people even though we especially scheduled our walk later in the day.

Gorgeous walk with spectacular views of the ocean! Beautiful scenic views and atmosphere. The walk is highly trafficked on a beautiful weekend afternoon. The trail is an easy walk to which you can enjoy leisurely the sounds of waves hitting rocks, to nicely manicured gardens and friendly gatherings.

Ogunquit was beautiful. We relaxed at the rocky part of the shore along the Marginal Way trail. The surf was clear and pounding; families congregated in each of the coves, and the throngs of beach-goers were along the sand beach in the distance. Marginal Way is an easy stroll along the shore, heavily traveled in summer.

I've been walking this trail since I was a kid with my family, it's extremely easy to walk and pets are allowed as long as they are kept on a leash. The best part of this trail is a tie between the view and the ability to climb out onto the rocks! There's two points in the trail, one in Ogunquit and one in Perkins Cove. if you're looking for good food and shopping Perkins Cove delivers.

A lovely walk along the coastline! The waterfowl are present regardless of tide level, and there are always rocks to crawl on.
