This neck of land off Shore Road in the lower part of Oqunquit village has a jumble of sea-beaten fish houses and buildings that were part of an art school. These have largely been transformed by the tide of tourism into shops and restaurants. When you've had your fill of browsing, stroll out along Marginal Way, a mile-long footpath that hugs the shore of a rocky promontory known as Israel's Head. Benches allow you to appreciate the open sea vistas.
