I would never have known about this gorgeous stretch of water if it wasn't for an Ocean Medicine course I attended. Wow. So much history and beauty. If you are going to be cloose by organise a boat trip, you won't regret it.

Lovely views of Plymouth Sound from Plymouth Hoe. Also interesting history of the Bteakwater, Fort Bovisand and Drake's Island. Walk from the Barbican around to West Hoe, seeing the Sound from different angles. Lovely any time of year.
