With her hair in loose curls and adorned with a rose band, barefaced Beyoncé looks beautiful and utterly tranquil as she gazes at Blue Ivy, happily sat in her lap.
The 19-month-old, dressed in a little swimsuit and sun hat, can be seen reaching out for her mother, gently placing her tiny hand on Beyoncé's shoulder as the pair sit in the white sand.
A second snap shows the proud mama carrying her little girl on her hip, a big smile on her face, while another shows the pair silhouetted as they peer out together at the distant sunset. There is also one of them stepping out barefoot and hand-in-hand as they head off to the beach together.
Beyonce has been making the most of a few days off during her sold-out world tour, which has been making its way through Florida and Georgia. She is currently on the US leg of her Mrs Carter tour, which finishes on 3rd August in Brooklyn, the home town of her husband Jay-Z.
Blue Ivy's passport already boasts an impressive collection of stamps. Joining her mother on tour, she has jetted across the globe to locations including London, Paris, Milan, Berlin, Zurich and Stockholm.
