Catherine Zeta-Jones is making the best of time off for the holidays with a good bit of R&R, delighting fans with glimpses of her stunning getaway.

The actress, 54, took to her Instagram Stories with a peek from her break, in which she rested on a lounger in a patterned cover-up and sunglasses, stating that she was enjoying a "little R and R."

She then added a truly stunning snapshot of her view, with her legs stretching out as the sea splayed out beyond her in all its glory, clouds gathering in the skies, the sunlight barely peeking out behind them.
