While everyone else heads to the Med, Edmiston – no slouch in the France-Italy-Croatia-Greece stakes – is proposing some intriguingly off-the-radar destinations. Among them is Baja California’s Sea of Cortez, aboard 41m motor yacht Komokwa (edmiston.com; from $125,000 a week for up to 10 guests).

First there are the waters themselves – Jacques Cousteau referred to this as “the world’s aquarium”, and its 900-odd species range from seahorses to whale sharks. Then there is the starkly beautiful desert with its Cordillera del Pacifico mountains, delivering otherworldly vistas and reliably stunning sunsets; and the national-park islands of Espíritu Santo and Partida. And if nature starts to feel a bit bereft of stimuli, Cabo San Lucas, with its ultra-luxe resorts and fabulous wining and dining options, is a few hours’ boat ride away.
