A coastal town on the French Riviera in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur area of south-eastern France is known for its long pedigree of esteemed artists and international “jet setters,” dating back to the 1960s. The tiny fishing villages of Saint-Tropez, which are still known for their lively beaches and nightlife, have recently changed and expanded to accommodate a slew of million-dollar yachts.
Saint-Tropez is the ideal destination for windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, and other motorized water sports such as powerboats, jet bikes, water skiing, and scuba diving, as it boasts a collection of beaches, each measuring an estimated 30 meters wide with their own private huts and public tanning areas, along its five-kilometer shore.
Saint-Tropez has established a reputation as an artistic and hedonistic town, as well as a clothing-optional sanctuary, thanks to the film ‘And God Created Woman,’ starring Brigitte Bardot.

Ibiza is a Balearic island and a Spanish archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea, famed for its ideal blend of European nightclubs, hotels, bars, shops, tranquil towns, yoga retreats, and beaches with sandy coves backed by pine-clad hills.
Every Wednesday at Es Canar, find the oddest fashion and one-of-a-kind jewelry, as well as scrumptious local food stalls and live music entertainment – or head to Bora Bora, the epicenter of Ibiza’s midday party scene, for the right blend of music, social gathering, cocktails, relaxation, and water sports.
Sardinia’s rough landscape stretches nearly 2,000km, littered with thousands of intriguing Bronze Age stone ruins and boasting coastlines, sandy beaches, and a hilly interior with hiking paths. With a turbulent history, the Italian island has been influenced by Arabs, Greeks, and Catalans, among many others.
Sardinia is known for its architecture, food, culture, and heritage, and is home to the picturesque town of Ozieri, the atmospheric cliffside ruins of Tharros, and the flavorful San Teodoro. Local delicacies include shellfish mixed platters with gelato, and the region’s famous fish zuppa, a light seafood stew crammed with crustaceans and fresh catches of the day.
The Piazzetta, a small cobbled square that overlooks Portofino’s superyacht-lined port, is surrounded by pastel-colored residences, high-end stores, and seafood restaurants.

It was once a humble fishing village southeast of Genoa city and along the Italian Riviera coastline.
