Plymouth Hoe (West) beach is not really a beach but just some rocks below Plymouth Hoe low limestone cliffs. The Hoe is a large south facing open public pace including a statue of Sir Francis Drake with magnificent views of Plymouth Sound, Drake’s Island, and across the Hamoaze to Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall.
The name derives from the Anglo-Saxon word Hoe, a sloping ridge shaped like an inverted foot and heel.
