Plymouth Hoe

Plymouth Hoe is a pleasant place to visit for sea front walks and sightseeing with fine views across Plymouth Sound. For bathers, Tinside Lido is open in the summer. Either side of the lido, the foreshore has small areas of pebble beach and concrete/rock sunbathing areas.
Signs warn not to use the beach during storms. See Beach Safety Guide.
The foreshore is reached via sloping paths and steps, not suitable for wheel chairs. There is disabled access to Tinside Lido.
Dogs allowed all year on the foreshore.
