When the sun is shining it is a lovely place to have a walk around, sitting on the grass under the lighthouse watching the boats out on the sound. Not too far from the bars and restaurants also.

You can easily sit and watch the sea for hours. Add a picnic or some ice cream and you've done the whole day!

Would recommend this place to everyone, as we visited Plymouth for a short holiday. Stunning scenery by the sea and they do boat trips just off the Barbican to different little islands.

The Hoe is a fantastic part of the city to visit or to just relax. Only about a 10 minute walk from the city centre. Smeaton's Tower is well worth a look (but I'd avoid during the busy tourist season when it gets too hectic)...More

Plymouth hoe has a lot of history, and is easily accessible from the main centre of Plymouth. You can visit the lighthouse, for even further views, take a picnic on a beautiful day and enjoy the scenery

Great place for views and to just relax and enjoy. Bring a rug and sit on the grass. We then went down the steps to watch the fisherwo/men, the water was very clear. There are few parking spaces but not many.

The Hoe doesn't tend to attract yobs, we are quite lucky living in Devon. Simon
