What better view can there be than Plymouth sound seen from the Hoe.I remember once before seeing the fleet of the Royal Navy occupying most of the sound when along came the planes and a mock battle ensued.It was all very peaceful this time with little sign of boats,but still fantastic

A breathtaking view of the sea, breakwater, Mount Edgcumbe and the various craft that frequent this iconic stretch of water. The jewel in the Plymouth crown. Always a privilege to view the Sound in any season and one of the reasons I choose to live in Plymouth.

Love it. Until recent I was a boat owner and sailed in and around Plymouth sound for 30 years and never lost my love of the place. Now I love to walk along the Hoe or sit in one of the bars or cafes and just look out over the water.

Amazing natural harbour with constant marine activity including large ships, sailing dinghies and small ferries and pleasure boats linking the historic Barbican to other parts of the city. Spectacular sunsets.
