If you’re struggling for inspiration on where to go on a summer holiday this year – we’ve got the solution you’ve been waiting for. The Saucy list of Seafood Destinations.

Whether you’re crazy for crayfish or drawn to a prawn, we’ve compiled our favourite coastal destinations to get your fix of some of the best seafood the world has to offer.

Nova Scotia, Canada: You’ll find the best lobster in the world in Nova Scotia, where you can try lobster in every possible form – you’ll see it on menus as lobster rolls and sandwiches to lobster burgers and risotto.

You can even attend a Lobster Festival in Barrrington - because there’s no better reason for a festival than lobster.

There’s plenty for non-lobster lovers too, as Nova Scotia has a rich European history. Halifax is popular for its museums and galleries, as well as craft breweries, while Digby Neck is a top destination for whale watching.

Palermo, Italy: Sun-drenched Palermo in Italy is famous for its incredible street life and historic architecture, but the coastal city is also a fantastic destination for fish and seafood lovers with its abundance of al-fresco restaurants serving everything from freshly fried mixed seafood to delicate risottos.

For the adventurous, visit the city’s busiest food market, Mercato Ballaro - a world famous foodie destination with an abundance of fresh fish.

Cornwall: Closer to home – Cornwall is the top destination for seafood lovers in the UK, with its many crab shacks, oyster bars, or simply cod and chips wrapped in paper to enjoy by the beautiful coastline.

Higher end restaurants will often serve fresh fish and seafood garnished with plants and vegetables foraged from the coastal landscape such samphire, wild garlic and wild flower petals.

There’s also plenty to do outside of enjoying the seafood– with beaches that rival the Caribbean, learn to surf, enjoy a coastal walk or sample the local produce, from pasties to clotted cream.
