Wearing a skimpy black bikini, Sarah is standing chest-deep in the empty pool, with her face titled toward the sun as she peacefully soaks in the warm rays.

"Yup... I remember how to do this (I was actually concerned I wouldn’t remember how to relax but thankfully it's like riding a bike)", she captioned the stunning photo.

Sarah looked gorgeous during her dreamy vacation

Just one day prior, the actress revealed that she had finally taken the plunge and was heading off for some "peace" without her family in tow.

Sharing a photo of herself at the airport wearing a face mask and protective face shield while holding up her passport, she wrote: "Well I finally did it.... on a plane, no kids heading off for some me time. And not the 2020 kind where I lock myself in my closet to do zooms in a modicum of peace."

The actress left her husband and kids at home in LA

Sarah isn't totally alone on her dreamy beach vacay though. She later posted some snaps on her Stories which showed that she has three friends for company.

Her husband is no doubt watching their two children, daughter, Charlotte, 11, and son, Rocky, eight, at home in LA.

Sarah and Freddie met while filming I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997, and started dating three years later. They tied the knot in 2002.
