Beyonce has given fans a glimpse of what her holidays are like with some snaps of a beach trip posted to Instagram.
The XO singer uploaded the holiday snaps to the social networking site, sharing what a great time she has been having on a recent break from her hectic touring schedule.
Her photos are all uncaptioned, but they show her enjoying a relaxing break by the sea and in one snap she is lying on a stack of surf boards, although they are firmly on dry land and she didn't show if she had done any actual surfing.
Other pictures show her soaking up the sun on the beach and watching a seaside sunset as she toasts her vacation with a glass of wine.
The star seemed to be back to work shortly afterwards though, as her next photos posted to Instagram included one of her in costume backstage next to a sign reading Winnipeg, which was captioned "Quick change".
She is currently in the middle of her joint On The Run tour with rapper husband Jay Z and recent guests in the audience included Michelle Obama and her daughters.
