Having showed the world that she can paddle board with the best of them, Victoria Silvstedt decided to relax on holiday yesterday.
The former Playboy model spent a lazy day on the beach topping up her tan and keeping cool in Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
The 37-year-old arrived at the beach in a pink outfit but was quick to whip it off and head straight for the crystal blue waters.

Victoria looked lovely in her attention grabbing pink dress as she and a group of friends arrived on the beach in a small white boat.
Once on dry land the sun worshipers looked for the perfect spot to sunbathe and dropped their things on some loungers.
With the midday heat creeping up Victoria had no choice but to remove some clothing in an attempt to keep cool.
Quick change: The model slipped out of her beach dress and revealed a lovely black bikini that showed off her toned body

Making a splash: Victoria was the star attraction on the beach as she cooled off in the crystal blue water
The former Miss Sweden took off her light frock to reveal her amazing beach body in a two-piece black bikini.
She teamed the tight swimwear with a cream fedora and a large pair of aviator sunglasses with her long curly blonde hair falling over her shoulders.
The beautiful model then decided to splash around in the sea but barely got her hips wet as she stayed firmly in the shallow shore.

Once back on the beach Victoria dried off with her blue towel before lying down on her lounger next to one of her friends.
The well toned star, who has been featured on over 500 magazine covers, cheekily jumped onto a bed with one of her girl friends as they play fought over sun protection cream.
Victoria has been sampling the delights of a whole host of sun-soaked destinations in recent weeks, travelling to the likes of St Tropez, Cannes and Monaco, before turning her attentions to the Italian Riviera.

Back to the hotel: The celebrity changed once again from her bikini into her pink dress before heading home
The reality star has enjoyed a fruitful career as a model ever since she became Miss Sweden, working for fashion houses such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani and Givenchy.
She soon caught the eye of Playboy boss Hugh Hefner who signed her up for his world-famous magazine, and was subsequently voted Playmate of the Year 1997.
