I love taking walks at Devils Point, we went when the mackerel were in abundance, watching the anglers landing fish after fish was a sight to behold. When the sun is out the walk is lovely you can have a cup of tea or an ice cream, walk along to see the Roscoffe ferry as it puts into dock or... More

Free carpark in which to sit or go for a walk and look at all the activity taking part on the water.Spectacular views of Plymouth Sound and the coastline of Devon and Cornwall. Within walking distance of the Royal William Yard.

The Devil's Point is called so because of the whirlpool and undercurrent that makes it very difficult for the yachts to enter the harbour.

If you manage to get a parking space, then get out and have a walk, you can walk a short distance to the seats and sit looking over to Mount Edgcumbe and the breakwater, lots of yachts and sometimes navy ships going out. You can walk to the end and there are sometimes fishermen there casting off. There is an... More

Devils Point in Plymouth is the gateway to the sea, with great access to the Royal William Yard. The beach front was clean and tidy, and the pool, although busy, was very well looked after. We arrived just after the tide had turned in-land, and the winds were rather strong, but there are plenty of places along the coastline to... More

A real 'hidden secret', Devils Point surely offers the best views of Plymouth Sound and the shipping. There is no better place to spend a few hours with a picnic on a nice day. Parking is difficult, so best to leave the car at home, get the bus to Royal William Yard and then walk around the front and up... More

If you are lucky to get a parking space, as it is free, this is a lovely place to visit. Walk down to the far end where the fishermen are, views over to Mount Edgcumbe and the dockyard. Plenty of seats where you can take the weight off your feet and watch all the activities going on around you. A... More

Access from the car park or via steps from the Royal William Yard there is plenty of quiet space with benches, nooks, a little beach and grassed areas to sit on. The views over Plymouth sound are fantastic and if you time your visit right, this must be the very best place to watch the ships entering and leaving Devonport.

Great views and like many other reviewers, a place we would park, have a stroll and enjoy the scenery and activity in The Sound. Now it is almost impossible to park there. Since the coastal walk staircase was opened it is used by people either working in or visiting Royal William Yard. I suspect the increases in the car parking... More
