A great spot to shop and enjoy a drink overlooking the cove. A couple of boat tours were available right at the dock. Many choices of restaurants.

A few restaurants and shops, the fishing pier and nice houses to see from below. You can get a cruise around or fishing trip from here.

Shops of little value in terms of finding anything of interest. Lobster Shack would be the best thing around. And that's about it.

Stay at the Riverside motel, perfect location, clean and quiet with a very friendly staff. When we stay here we always eat at Jackie's Two, the food is delicious and it has a beautiful view.

Shops and restaurants are nice but paling is a real pain and expensive. Best to go during the week as the weekends are crowded.

Perkins Cove is definitely one of my favorite places in New England. The harbor, boats, shops, restaurants, ocean, and overall feel is classic Maine. While there take a walk along the Marginal Way for spectacular views of the ocean.

There were lots of restaurants i. This area of town. Parking could be expensive that people may not want to pay but depending on your hotel the Cove could be within walking distance.

Yes. It's expensive. Best bet is park at your hotel and walk or take trolley. Lot us small and fills up fast, but there's another lot just outside of cove.
