Ogunquit is a cozy, southern Maine village, nestled between sandy beaches and Maine's beautiful rocky shoreline. Ogunquit offers one of the finest sandy beaches anywhere, a picturesque area of rocky coastline, outstanding restaurants, comfortable lodging and convenience to great shopping, art galleries, summer theater and much more.
Ogunquit Beach is absolutely beautiful. Three miles of pristine white sand and natural dunes. Parking is limited at the beach; we recommend you enjoy a ride on the famous trolley that stops right at our front door in season. On the trolley you can relax and enjoy the breathtaking sights that Ogunquit has to offer.
Many guests enjoy strolling along Marginal Way, which is a mile and a quarter long foot path that follows the shoreline from just south of the village center to Perkins Cove. This walk is one of the most spectacular places to enjoy scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean and to watch the surf crashing against the rocks. Set off on your own or take a tour with a local guide.
At the end of Marginal Way is Perkins Cove, a quaint working harbor that has been home to artists from around the world for nearly 100 years. Today, Perkins Cove is a delightful mix of shops, galleries, restaurants and home port for many fishermen. The Cove also serves as the departure point for charter fishing boats, sight seeing cruises and whale watching expeditions.
Ogunquit has so much to offer for those who love to explore. The nearby towns of Kennebunkport, Kittery, Wells and York are all a short drive away.
Some like to use Ogunquit as "home base" and plan day trips to nearby Portland, Freeport — home of L.L. Bean or Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
We hope to see you soon at the Sea View Motel.
