Celebrities often escape to a beach getaway to celebrate a new year. At the beginning of 2018, we’ve already seen a number of celebrities baring their beach bodies, and they’re looking hotter than ever. Though celebrities like Demi Lovato and Hilary Duff may have received body shame in 2017, they’ve proven that confidence is your best accessory in a swimsuit.
We dare you not to stare at these 15 hot Hollywood stars with the best beach bodies of 2018.
1. Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato started off 2018 the best way possible: with body positivity. She looks radiant in her striped black-and-white one piece. Even though Lovato claims to be “insecure about [her] legs in this picture,” we think she looks as gorgeous as ever. Her caption not only affirms that she’s on the path to recovery, but she inspires her followers to love their own bodies:
So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism. Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing. Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes. Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life.

2. Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg may be a father, but getting a dad bod isn’t on his agenda. The actor traveled south to Barbados for a beach getaway just before the new year, and he was looking hunky as ever.
Next: Her husband probably didn’t mind being her photographer.
Ciara was obviously feeling herself in this swimsuit, and we don’t blame her. The 32-year-old singer looked positively stunning in an itty bitty black bikini. She and her husband, NFL star Russell Wilson, escaped to the beach at the beginning of 2018. Wilson was likely her personal photographer on the trip — and we’re sure he didn’t mind being behind the camera.

4. Lady Gaga
Excuse us while we pick our jaws up from the floor. Lady Gaga’s body is looking amazing, and she wanted her Instagram followers to know it. She wished everyone a “Happy New Year!” in her caption, and she looks like she’s getting her year started off feeling happy, healthy, confident.
Next: His tattoos and muscles look great together.
5. Justin Bieber
We have a feeling 2018 will be a good year for Justin Bieber. Not only is he back with his long-time girlfriend, Selena Gomez, but he entered the new year with his body in serious shape. He spent the holiday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and without his shirt on, he was easily spotted with his recognizable tattoos. Although they weren’t photographed together, Gomez was spending New Year’s at the same beach with friends. Coincidence? We think not.
Next: She looks adorable yet sexy.
6. Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn is no stranger to posting Instagram photos of herself in swimsuits, and we’re not mad about it. She’s looking amazing in this adorable, cherry-adorned one piece, which perfectly accentuates her curves. We’re betting lots of ladies will be copying this Punta Cana look in 2018.
Next: She has every right to show off her body.
7. Alessandra Ambrosio
Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio has every right to show off her body while on vacation during the start of 2018. Not only is she in great shape, but it looks like she has her mind in the right place, too. She posted this photo to Instagram, and wrote, “May 2018 be full of prosperity, infinite possibilities of love, freedom and happiness!”

8. David Beckham
Yet another famous dad who’s keeping the dad bod away? David Beckham. He was having some fun in the water with boogie board in-hand, and was looking good while doing it. It’s hard to believe he’s the father to 18-year-old Brooklyn Beckham, because the two of them are looking more alike by the day.
Next: She’s looking like one hot mama.
9. Britney Spears
Hot mama! While on vacation with her sons in Hawaii, Britney Spears took some time to show off her toned body. The 36-year-old looks younger than ever in her yellow bikini and sunhat, but it was one more accessory that had people talking.
Spears was spotted wearing a diamond ring while hitting the beach, so rumors of engagement to her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, 23, have inevitably surfaced. Either way, we’re happy for her, because she definitely seems to be living her best life.
Next: She’s looking confident, happy, and gorgeous.
Speaking of gorgeous celebrities living their best lives, that’s exactly what Cassie’s doing to start out the new year. The singer posted this photo of herself at the beach, with the caption, “I will spend the rest of my life living my best life” — and it definitely seems like she’s sticking to that philosophy. Aside from her killer body, the first thing we noticed was how confident and happy she looks.

11. Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman may be making a silly face, but that can’t distract us from his chiseled bod. The Australian native spent some time in his home country while running in a very Baywatch-esque manner along Bondi Beach, which put him on the radar as one of the best beach bodies in 2018.
Next: She’s proving one-pieces can be sexy.
12. Molly Sims
This photo of Molly Sims is proof that one-pieces can be even sexier than a two-piece. We love how Sims accessorized with the hat and sunnies, which enhanced her beachy vibes while ringing in the new year. The 44-year-old posted this photo to Instagram on the eve of 2018, writing, “See y’all next year.”

13. Shemar Moore
Shemar Moore was looking seriously handsome on the beach while celebrating the new year. He’s definitely comfortable showing off his ripped body on Instagram, so it’s safe to say he’s earned the title of one of the hottest beach bodies of 2018. In this video, the Criminal Minds star wished his followers a Happy New Year while reminding them, “Tomorrow’s the first day of the rest of your life.”

14. LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes looked picturesque in a stunning red one-piece by the water on Jan. 10, 2018. The singer was vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, and we have to admit we’re a bit jealous. She captioned the photo, “Oh, Heavenly Day!” — and that’s exactly what it looks like.
Next: She shut down those body shamers.
15. Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff is feeling good in a bikini! The star looked absolutely fabulous while roaming the beach with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie, and their son, Luca, 5. She may have recently dealt with body shamers, but her body and her confidence are definitely radiating.
Earlier in 2017, Duff shared a photo of herself in a swimsuit holding her son, with her backside to the camera. She wrote an inspiring message to her followers:
I am posting this on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages. I’m enjoying a vacation with my son after a long season of shooting and being away from him for weeks at a time over those months. Since websites and magazines love to share “celeb flaws” — well I have them! My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I’m turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, lets be proud of what we’ve got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed.
