  • Destinations: We zip around the waters of the Maldives in search of manta rays and whale sharks; climb aboard a stately catamaran and explore the Belize Barrier Reef; and discover where the well-heeled hang out in Croatia. Our picture story, meanwhile, captures the hillside towns and glittering marinas of Majorca.
