Just such a well maintained scenic place to walk. Absolutely recommended for those who want a good work out by taking a long fast paced walk or a leisure walk for those who want more of a stroll.

Marginal way is a cliff walk with gorgeous ocean views! Rocky coast and beautiful flowers ! The ocean on one side and some gorgeous properties on the other. Starts in Perkins Cove and goes almost to Ogunquit Beach.

You can't go to Ogunquit and not walk the Marginal Way. One one side the rugged and gorgeous Atlantic and on the other some outstanding homes. It's a great place to people watch too. Enjoy an ice cream when you get to Perkins Cove or a cold one.

If you've never walked the Marginal Way, you will be quite pleasantly surprised. The path is one of New England's only paved, public shoreline footpaths.
