In the summer, we head to the beach for a glimpse of the best bods, but if you’re staying home in the AC, here are the best celebrity beach bodies to look out for on Instagram.
Summer brings a lot of the best things: time away from school/work, vacations, endless margaritas, and an even more endless supply of beach bodies.
The season is completely diminished if we don’t make at least one trip to shore to bask in the sun, frolic in the water, and gaze at the beach bodies.
You might ditch the hot sun for cool air conditioning, and if you’d rather spend your summer without sunburn, here are the best celebrity beach bodies that you can catch on your Instagram feed.
If we didn’t know any better, we’d say this former Cheetah Girl was on the prowl with her beach body. Adrienne Bailon shows off the definite appeal of a high-waisted bikini from the narrowing at the waist to the swell of her hips.
This tennis star is no stranger to the spotlight on the court, but it definitely follows her on the beach. With a body that she clearly worked hard for, Serena Williams’s body is toned to perfection, starting from her narrow waist and flat stomach and ending at her strong thighs.
This mother of two has a beach body that would put most to shame. Jessica Alba’s beach body is noticeably firm and toned. With muscles and abs clearly showing, you can tell his sexy mom was working hard for her flawless figure.
This pretty little liar lives an absolutely glamorous life when she’s not filming, and it’s all displayed on her Instagram. With her indie vibes and bohemian waves, Shay Mitchell’s beach body can always be caught in an equally fabulous location.
If there’s one celebrity we can always expect to find in a bathing suit, it’s Rihanna. With toned but soft curves, Rih is always showing off her beach body in a two piece and body chain.
She might be “Jenny from the Block,” but J. Lo is one star who will always get the right kind of attention at the beach. At 46 years old, this sexy mother of two has rock hard abs and her beach bum is the perfect result of good genes and mastering squats.
Very rarely will Beyonce be photographed without her knowledge, and luckily for her Instagram followers, Bey is never shy from posting her own bikini shots on her account. With the ideal hour glass shape, Beyonce’s body is one of the best out there.
Selena Gomez might be the most followed person on Instagram because not only is she relatable, but she’s beautiful. In this black one piece with low cut sides, Gomez looks effortlessly sexy.
Some of the best things come out of England, and David Gandy is one of them. As a model, Gandy is paid because of his handsome face and amazing physique, and we definitely appreciate the whole package.
This attractive Englishmen is one of the oldest on our list but has one of the best bodies in Hollywood. Idris Elba has had very few roles where we’ve gotten to see him shirtless, but the few times his broad shoulders and lean body make an appearance, we can only hope these roles start to roll in.
For as long as his dimpled smile has been in the limelight, Mario Lopez has always been known to have an amazing body. Since his days as AC Slater, our eyes have been glued to his biceps, pecs, and hard abs.
If you weren’t slightly jealous of Sofia Vergara before, you might be once you see what her husband looks like shirtless. Joe Manganiello shows off his perfectly muscled body at the beach, and we can’t help but stare.
And if Instagram isn’t enough for you, this Magic Mike star even has a book about building the perfect body with a shirtless picture of his on the cover.
You’ll never hear us ask Michael B. Jordan to put a shirt on. Relatively new to the Hollywood scene, MBJ has a body to rival most of the old-timers. Getting even more toned for his lead in the movie Creed, Michael B. Jordan pleases many with his shirtless scenes.
The best thing about warm weather is the endless supply of beach bodies, but the best thing about Shemar Moore is that he’s willing to show off his during any season.
With pecs that are always glistening and abs that are always on display, Shemar Moore shows all of his “baby girls” just what they’re missing.
This Asgardian god of thunder definitely brings the noise wherever his beach body goes. Chris Hemsworth is lean and toned in all the right places, and who doesn’t love the veins bulging out of his forearms? With the silky hair, deep voice, and perfect body, we’ll follow him to any beach.
Standing at 6’2”, Hugh Jackman is all the man we need. At 47 years old, he has a body we can only hope our husbands have. This Australian hunk has broad shoulders, hard abs, and the perfect amount of chest hair to keep our mouths watering.
Mr. Steal Yo Girl, Trey Songz, is definitely trying to make sure everyone understands his women stealing capabilities. With toned abs, a chiseled chest, and tattoos on display, Trey Songz and his beach body have earned their spot on this list.
If there’s anyone that grew up nicely, it’s definitely Zac Efron. From his start on the small TV show “Summerland” to his recent gig as a lifeguard in the new Baywatch movie, we’re definitely excited to watch him glistening in water while running in slow motion.
