I come down here often and love looking at the Sound, it looks completely different from every angle! The best viewpoints in my opinion are from Jennycliff and Mount Edgcumbe. There's always lots of movement so it's interesting but what I like best is watching the warships.

i take my dog on the hoe every weekend it's a great place to chill out and soak in the views or to meet with friends and have a ice cream. There is so much to do if you choose to there are shops pubs or just sit by the lighthouse and watch the world go by...

Beautiful view with lots to do, with pubs and cafes. Maybe wait for a sunny day though. Captain Jaspers for lunch a must, even if you'll regret it later.

Just walk up onto the Hoe and there in front of you is a spectacular view of the sound and no matter the day or the weather there is always so much activity and things to see.A true jewel on the Devon coastline.

Looking over The Sound towards the breakwater is amazing. In February the sea was so blue and the sun was shining, what more could you need to relax after a lush lunch at Monty's on the Barbican. Drake's Island, ships/boats, mountbatten and jennycliff can all be seen and you can take various boat trips.

The varied shops and Pubs around the Barbican make this area of Plymouth a must for visitors even in the winter
