Drakes Island

Drakes Island

Drakes Island is situated in Plymouth Sound at the entrance to the river Tamar. It is about 6.5 acres in size. Its strategic position has meant that there a a number of military buildings. It was originally called St Michaels after a chapel that was built there. The chapel was rededicated to St Nicholas and the island then took that to be its official name. However, due to its association with Sir Francis Drake it acquired the nickname of Drakes Island. The buildings are Grade II listed. The island is now in private ownership and after many years of trying, planning permission to convert the island into a luxury hotel and spa have finally been approved. Work is expected to start sometime in 2019 as planning permission runs out in 2020.
