My stupid cousin is off on vacation somewhere. He told me he found a really nice fishing spot and if I can figure out how to get there, he'll pay for my transportation.

He sent me this map:

I'm dumbfounded. Can anyone tell me exactly where to go?

You need to go somewhere in the vicinity of

Nice [EDITED: My attempts at matching the image up with a map have been a little frustrating, but Nice is in about the right place and if it's the intended answer then there's a pertinent pun up near the start of the puzzle.]

as may be more apparent if we

change the colours of the (relief) map so that the bits denoting water are blue instead of green:

You can see

the south of England at the top, Spain at the left, etc.
