Mel's two-piece highlighted the array of intricate inkings on her body, which include a blue and purple fire-breathing dragon on her calf, a huge cross on her upper arm and a series of Chinese symbols on her shoulder.

The star, who enjoyed splashing around in the shallows of the sea, wore her glossy brunette tresses down in a loose natural style, before sweeping them up into a neat bun while enjoying a swim.

Mel headed for a dip in the water with her partner of four years Joe, the couple began dating in December 2015, and after their romance went from strength to strength she also made him her manager.
