Puerto Marina keeps stealing the top spot as the best marina in the world. Superyachts and catamarans are up for hire here. And shops range from boutiques peddling exclusive leather bags to nautical hidey-holes glittering with supersized fossils and precious stone jewellery. A sleek steakhouse and gelateria finish off the scene.
Head north, and you’ll bump into three of the most elegant cities in Spain — Granada, Seville and Cordoba. As the capital of Andalusia, the palaces and grand squares of Seville rate highly in the luxury stakes. But the best palace belongs to Granada, home of the Alhambra.
