If you like your swordfish with a side of calamari, if you know your ‘pacific’ from your ‘Kumamoto’ oyster, and if you can crack a lobster claw in less than 30 seconds, you may well be a ‘sea-foodie’!
Revered by foodies the world over, many even chose their luxury villa rental based on kitchen facilities and private dock, in order to cook and catch – such is their love of fresh seafood.
From Saint Barth to Saint Tropez and Ibiza rentals, there may be oceans between them, but there’s plenty of fish in the sea, so to speak. Here’s our top destinations for seafood lovers…
