Plymouth sound is a great looking area with lots of fun things to do. You can look over the sound from the hoe or Barbican and enjoy the shops and restaurants along these two sites. There are a few little gems on plymouth sound that are great for fishing, highly recommend to everyone.

Beautiful views out to sea, a natural historic port. Sit on Plymouth hoe and watch the world go by. Watched everyone out walking Christmas Day.

We visited in December, it was a cold day but it didn't feel it walking across the front. The view across the sound was stunning, especially at sunset.

If you want to get a real taste of the city and its history and possibilities for the future visit the Barbican and Plymouth SoundThe views are amazing, the history is amazing. Wrap up warm in winter as the wind can be chilly...oh and it rains a lot!

Absolutley stunning views from the Hoe of this magnificent natural harbor. One of the most beautiful places in the southwest of the UK.

Spectacular views still unspoilt and enchanting take a look out to sea at Drakes Island and see the bowling green where Sir Francis Drake finished his game of bowls before defeating the Spanish amarda.

We who live in Plymouth are very lucky that Plymouth Sound and the Hoe are only minutes away from our homes. One of the most scenic natural harbours in the world with an ever changing vista. Whatever the weather or season, there is always a changing panorama with fishing boats, sailing craft, RoRo ferries and Royal Naval ships coming and... More

Great place to sail, canoe, sup, etc., I do none of them but I know people who do. Or go on a dockyard and warships trip. Nice ferry transfers from the Barbican to various places although they are pricey compared to similar products in Torbay.
