Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona may be the party capital of Spain, but it’s also become something of a gastronomic haven too. Catalan cuisine is surf-and-turf in nature, making use of both the fresh seafood from the Mediterranean, as well as the special Iberian pork reared in the nearby mountain ranges. Paella was created in the Catalonian region, but in Barcelona the locals substitute rice with vermicelli noodles and call it Fideuà. Barcelona is also the perfect place to sample some tapas; small plates of fried calamari and spiced Butifarra sausage should tie you over until dinner, which is normally served around 10pm.

Speciality dish: If you’re looking for something lighter between the cured meats and fried treats, try the local dish of Esqueixada; a salad of tomatoes, olives and shredded salt cod, dressed with olive oil and vinegar.

Where to eat: Barcelona has become a hub for experimental cooking. UMA and ABaC are both Michelin-starred restaurants that aim to reinvent the traditional dishes of the region.

How to visit by superyacht: the sleek OneOcean Port Vell has plenty of berths for superyachts up to 190 metres, and will set you right in the centre of the city.
