6 places to find the world’s best oysters

1 of 6 1/6
Bluff in New Zealand has some of the best oysters in the world

New Zealand

The fresh ocean taste of an oyster while relaxing on a luxury yacht is hard to beat. Here is our guide on where to find six of the best oysters in the world.

1. New Zealand

Bluff Oysters from the southern most tip of New Zealand's South Island are some of the most prolific. Grown in the cold waters of the Foveaux Strait, the number of oysters harvested has been limited for decades, partially due to a suddenly wide-spreading a disease in the late 1980s that turned oysters black and watery. In May each year, locals and visitors alike celebrate the Bluff Oyster Festival.

The arctic temperatures and great depths of the southern waters in New Zealand contribute to the Bluff Oysters' rich and succulent flavours. They are large, juicy and have an intense flavour, earning them a place among the finest oysters in the world.

Though Bluff itself is a little off the beaten track, it's oysters are available across the country, so you should absolutely sail your superyacht to New Zealand — Auckland and Queenstown in particular are of to some of the world's best restaurants offering this southern island delicacy.
