I love coming here as I have done on and off for the last 40+ years. Stunning views and constant changes of scenery with shipping movements to watch. Brilliant !

With one of the best views, in my opinion, the Hoe is a great place to visit. There is always something going on at sea and plenty of places for coffee and snacks indoors and outside.

The walk from West Hoe park will take you into Plymouth Barbican area,... More

It's plymouth sound. Great in the sun. Bit crap when it's raining and windy - check the weather reports. Good for boating and looking at. Climb the lighthouse. Eat some ice cream

Great views over the Sound, lots of places to walk around the cliff tops on the Montbatten side of the water. A nice bar at the Mountbatten centre too.

There is always something to see, whether its ships and boats or birds and yachts, a changing seascape whatever the season.
