Good day, sunshine!

Paul McCartney and his wife, Nancy Shevell, soaked up some tropical rays as they enjoyed a beach day on the island of St. Bart’s on Wednesday.

The music icon, 81, sported a long-sleeved black shirt and sunset-print shorts as he joyfully made his way along the sand, hair flowing behind him.

Shevell, 64, waded through the water in black shorts and a red, pink, orange and white top in a playful swirling pattern.

The trip appears to be an annual tradition for the couple, who were seen on another vacation in St. Bart’s in March 2023.

The Beatles member began dating Shevell in 2007 after he met the New York-based businesswoman in the Hamptons. Shortly after, McCartney told the Sunday Times, "I just like being in love."

The couple got engaged in May 2011 and tied the knot that October at the Old Marylebone Town Hall in London. The music legend’s daughter, Stella McCartney, designed the couple's wedding looks for the occasion. Guests included Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, and George Harrison’s widow, Olivia Harrison.

In October, McCartney marked 12 years of marriage to Shevell with a sweet tribute on Instagram.

"Happy anniversary to my lovely wife, Nancy. Let’s have a great one - Paul 💘," the musician wrote, alongside a photo of the pair posing together outside.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day last year, McCartney reflected on what being a husband means to him in a post on his website.

"I see it as just trying to be good to my wife Nancy and trying to be considerate and romantic," he wrote, noting that he can go a bit overboard for the holiday.

"I completely overdo Valentine’s Day! I mean, there’s not just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even spill into the next day — it’s completely silly. If there’s an excuse to have some fun, I overdo it!" he admitted.

McCartney added that he loves being the person Shevell "relies on."

"I am very proud, in fact, to be 'The Guy' there. And I know she is grateful. So that's my role as a husband: it's to be the strength and the romance at the same time," he wrote. "I don't think I consciously chose to be that way. It's just how I do things."

McCartney was previously married to Linda McCartney from 1969 until her death in 1998, and Heather Mills from 2022 until 2008.
