I have walked this in both the summer and winter months. Just beautiful any time of the year! If walking in the winter, wear your snow boots/waterproof shoes.

It is everything they say, accessible, beautiful and a pretty easy stroll. Interestingly, there is a pretty big tide.

The mile walk on the Marginal Way from Ogounquit to Perkins Cove is a must. View spectacular beach coves and beautiful rock formations. Don't forget to bring bathing suit. You might want to take a dip.

The most beautiful of beautiful places for a stroll, particularly in Fall when it's not as crowded, but still gorgeous.

This place is great to view the Ocean. The walk has benches placed to sit and take in the views and fresh air. You will not want to leave.

Nice easy walk along the coast, beautiful ocean views the entire way! It's starts at Perkins cove and ends at Ogunquit beach, probably a 1.5 mile walk. It's an easy walk no steep hills or anything.

This spiritual sanctuary is truly a local treasure. Maintained by local philanthropy and talent, there are well kept benches and regular updates that add to the natural wonder of the ocean, rocks, sky, wind, and weather. Multiple entry ways give lots of options to enjoy this wonderful walkway.

Stopped for lunch in this cute sea town and then walked Marginal Way. Just beautiful and it's a well paved and easy walk. Do it, you won't regret it!
