Batten Bay

Batten Bay - Devon
© Philip Halling and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Batten Bay beach is situated just a stone\‘s throw across Plymouth Sound from the Barbican and Hoe. However, unless you take a water taxi it is quite a circuitous route through Plymstock to get here.

Probably the best thing about Batten Bay are the views across the Sound to Drake\‘s Island and beyond. There is also a nice little walk around Mountbatten Point and the Mountbatten Tower.
