Halle Berry frolics on the beach in new photo that turns heads

Halle Berry is making the best of the time that she has in warmer California weather, sharing with fans glimpses of her time spent away from the spotlight.

The star doesn't shy away from feeling her best self on social media, as evidenced by a rather risqué video of herself below from home.

Her latest photograph featured a peek at her carefree days spent soaking up some sun and sand by the beach.

Halle displayed some of her toned physique, especially her legs, in a new picture in which she was seen frolicking by the water in a cover-up.

The patterned blue and white fit was paired with a straw hat as the actress gazed behind her during what looked to be dusk, with a swimsuit seemingly underneath.

"Barefoot and beautiful," one wrote, while another said: "Like a scene outta X-Men," and a third added: "You're turning into a beautiful mermaid."

Halle recently also shared a photo of herself dressed in a black string bikini that put her enviable figure on display.

She paired it with a dark tiger-print cover up, topping off her sun-soaking look with wide sunglasses and a gold chain. "Some women fear the fire, some women simply become it…," she quoted for her caption, and her fans quickly began to fawn.

"Nothing better than being a woman at this point in our lives that knows we are [on] fire. Keep shining sis," a fan enthusiastically commented, while another also added: "You just showing off now."
