Celebrities are doing more than inspiring people on what to wear and trends to watch for this summer. The stars also remind us to take a break and go on vacation because life is too short not to have fun. From romantic getaways in the south of France, baecations in South America, and family vacations in the Caribbean, these summer celebrity vacays inspire us to pack up and take a flight.

Early in the summer, socialite Jordyn Woods took a trip to Dubai. She captioned her photos, “Something so magical about waking up with the sun.” She may be on to something because the countries that make up the United Arab Emirates have some of the world’s most beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

If there’s one place that looks good on Black women, it’s St. Kitts and Nevis. Actress Nia Long further proves this point as she’s been soaking up the last summer with her youngest son on the island.

Her skin was glowing as she posted a beautiful photo in a swimsuit, honey-blonde box braids and a pair of shades on Instagram.

“All I need is Caribbean sun, a good sea bath, soca, and a beach cabana @fsnevis ❤️ #fsnevis #peace #thegiftoftravel,” she captioned the photo to her more than 4 million followers.

Sometimes, the best couples therapy is a luxury trip to St. Tropez, France, as Lori Harvey and Damson Idris prove.

The two are having what Harvey captioned a “Euro Summer” on Instagram. If you need some inspiration on spending time in St. Tropez with your significant other, she has you covered. 

A ride on a yacht, a lunch date with wine and views, luxury shopping and exploring the rocky beaches along France’s coast, St. Tropez is the perfect destination for romance and quality time.

If it’s one thing about Ashanti, she will prioritize being in a bikini on a beach. It’s hard to keep up with the Grammy-award-winning artist because she’s always exploring somewhere new. 

Most recently, she was visiting the Dutch-Caribbean-island gem of Curaçao. Her skin is glowing, and her body is serving in her Versace pink bikini, and she’s clearly the life of the party.
