Whether you are already sad about the days of summer passing us by or whether you are looking forward to hitting the slopes or doing snowboarding there is no doubt that summer is now officially over. How do we know that? Well, for one thing, all the pics of hot celebs on the beach are already out there waiting for us to rank. There are obviously a lot of things to love about summer of course, and one of them is going to the beach. And why do you go to the beach? Well, it is gorgeous there, no doubt about that but if you are a guy, a big reason to go to the beach is obviously to check out all of the babes that are there.
There is one thing and only one thing that is better than checking out chicks at the beach, and that is checking out famous chicks at the beach. We at The Richest decided to scour through all of the hot beach celeb photos of the past year, so you did not have to. It was hard work but someone had to do it. You're welcome.
Some of these ladies were rocking the beach and looking for as much attention as they could get, some others were hoping that they would avoid the notice of the camera. But since all of these women are smoking hot, there was not much chance of that happening.
Here are 15 female celebrities that looked awesome on the beach this summer. And don't worry- we're already researching our candidates for next summer as well.
15 Aly Raisman
So Aly Raisman is hot. You may not have thought so before, in fact maybe you never thought of it at all, but there is no doubt that Aly works it no matter where she is, and the beach is no exception. You have to give her a gold medal for those abs- there is no doubt about that. I know that typically abs are a thing that women like on guys and not the other way around, but with Aly we will make an exception. And that exception is easy to make; she is not an over muscled weightlifter type, far from it actually. Aly totally has a womanly vibe, and if you don't believe me, just check her out when she is kicking it on the beach while wearing a bikini. Just don't let her see you doing it, because that would be kind of creepy.
14 Kendall Jenner
On the other end of the spectrum of the rock hard abs comes the entire Kardashian family, who are not particularly known for working out. In fact they are a bit more well known for the amount of jiggle that they represent. They also are super-well known for going to the beach, so there is never a shortage of photos of a Kardashian rolling around on the beach in a bikini. Kendall Jenner is not nearly as curvy as her Kardashian sisters, but she still fills out a bikini just fine. She should, since she goes to the beach often enough. In fact, next time you go to the beach, pretty much anywhere actually, take a look around, there is a pretty good chance that that Betty next to you on the next blanket is Kendall Jenner, or at the least some other Kardashian type.
13 Hailey Baldwin
So for those of you that don't know, Hailey is buddies with Kendall Jenner so you know two things have to be true about her: she is hot and she likes to go to the beach. Those two things are pretty much required to hang out with Kendall. According to TMZ she goes to the beach by herself every once in a while, too. They had this to say: "Hailey's frolicking on Rosemary Beach, just up the coast from Panama City. She and her sister, Alaia, are kicking it down there in a vacation home ... a short drive from the beachfront." I have to be honest, I doubt that Hailey frolics a whole lot, there is no way that anyone that hangs out with Kendall Jenner is much of a frolicker. It just would not be cool. Oh, did we mention how hot Hailey looks on the beach?
12 Ariel Winter
So we all know that Ariel Winter is pretty hot. I think what we might not have known is exactly how hot she is. Well, if you have seen photos of her on the beach, than that is no longer the issue. She is curvy as heck and obviously does not mind having a little bit of fun with her body. According to the Daily Mail UK: "The actress was accompanied by her boyfriend Laurent Gaudette as they frolicked in the sand together during their stay at the Atlantis in the Bahamas." Wait, maybe I was wrong about Hailey Baldwin, maybe she did frolic after all. I mean who knows, maybe all of these totally hot celebs frolic all over the beach all the time and I just don't know about it. I guess I have to go to the beach more often.
11 Gigi Hadid
It is not too hard to guess that Gigi Hadid looks pretty amazing in a bikini. Gigi actually spent a lot of time on the beach with Taylor Swift. According to the Daily Mail: "Taylor Swift’s Independence Day weekend party held at her beachfront home in Rhode Island was giving us serious #squadgoals. As well as new boy Tom Hiddleston, Taylor’s other guests included the likes of Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Blake Lively... not a bad looking bunch!" I know, you were going to go but your invitation got lost in the mail. If you check out photos from this day you will see that despite all of the hotness around Gigi may have been the hottest one of all, or at least she gets my vote, anyway.
10 Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens is a bit of a sleeper. Not that she is not totally hot and gorgeous, because she is, but you don't expect her to look this great. Let's just say she looks pretty amazing. And she goes to the beach a lot; in fact there are tons of photos of Vanessa on the beach this year, many of those are with her friend Ashley Benson. There is no official word on whether or not Vanessa and Ashley frolic when they are on the beach together, but personally I really hope that they do. Vanessa has also been seen on the beach this year with her sister Stella and with Austin Butler. In fact it seems that she really is looking for people to go to the beach with, if you have her digits give her a ring.
9 Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts spent a lot of time on the beach last summer in Miami and looked pretty fabulous doing it while wearing a pink bikini and some pretty amazing shades as well. PopSugar sure as heck thought she looked pretty good anyway as they said "the Scream Queens star, who is currently making the press rounds for her new film Nerve, took a relaxing break in the ocean in a hot pink bikini and colorful mirrored sunglasses; she let out a laugh while splashing around with friends, then slipped into a pair of denim cutoff shorts and sipped on fresh coconut water." Now that is some pretty serious reporting when you even can tell what kind of water she is drinking. All I can tell you for sure is that she looked fabulous doing it.
8 Lea Michele
Every once in a while a celebrity really wants to go to the beach, and they just want to chill out and act like a normal person. Therefore they figure that they should wear some sort of disguise. They probably figure if they put on a fake mustache they will get noticed right away, so they go for the old stand by. The baseball hat. This of course never works, and everyone takes photo of the celebrity anyway, the only thing that they really accomplish is that they end up looking kind of dumb. As exhibit A I offer you Lea Michele. Sure she looks kind of hot, but the old baseball hat disguise is not super- flattering. But hey, this is Lea Michele we are talking about here, so she still looks hot.
7 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff has been around for a long time now, so long that she seems a bit older than she is, but she is still just 28 years old. No matter what her age, there is no doubt that her body is pretty banging, and isn't that what these beach photos are all about anyway? There is no other place that Hilary Duff would be putting it all out there for all to see the way she is other than the beach. So for this we will be forever grateful. Hilary looks great in her late 20s and it is our hope that she continues to hit the beach for a very long time to come. If you have any doubt as to the truth of that statement just check out the above photo- Hilary is one of the 15 reasons on this list that the beach is worth going to.
6 Nina Dobrev
Guess what? There has been another case of really hot celebrities frolicking that has come to light. Nina Dobrev may not be a frolicker, but her friend Jessica Stam apparently is. Nina and her buddies recently went to Maui and the Daily Mail had this to say: "The 27-year-old and her fellow travel companions Jessica Szohr, 30, and model Jessica Stam, 29, were certain to incite envy as they splashed around in the water on Friday. Not far by frolicked Stam, who turned heads in a bright red bikini that put her model physique on full display." Whether Nina is frolicking, or just watching her model friends do so, there is no doubt that she looks totally amazing,.
5 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez loves bikinis. I know that I already said how much the Kardashians are prone to "beaching," but they literally have nothing on Selena when it comes to her spending some time on the beach, kicking around, and showing off her curves. Selena is a bit in the Vanessa Hudgens camp in that you know that she is gorgeous, you know that she has a nice body, but did you ever think what was hiding under all those clothes looked quite as good as this? You know you didn't and I sure as heck did not either. Selena has the money to hit the beaches in different locales all year long, so let's hope there is no let up.
4 Shay Mitchell
Guess who likes to frolic? Shay Mitchell, that's who. According to the Daily Mail: "On Pretty Little Liars their characters are part of the same high school clique. And it seems Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell are just as good friends off screen, frolicking on the beach together in Hawaii on Monday. The bikini-clad actresses kept it modest as they attempted to cover up their slender figures by wrapping themselves in towels while continuing to splash around in the ocean." I don't know about you but I am starting to feel a little bit left out. I can't remember the last time I frolicked on the beach with an incredibly hot celebrity, and this whole article is starting to make me really feel like I am missing out.
3 Rita Ora
Rita Ora is just ridiculously hot. I honestly do not even know what to say about Rita Ora on the beach. There are plenty of things that come to mind that I could say, but this is a family site. There are even a few photos kicking around on the net of Rita "changing" on the beach. Let us just say that if you happen to be laying on the sand, cranking some tunes and looking at the ocean, or you and your buddies are kicking around playing frisbee and flexing your muscles and you happen to see Rita Ora walking your way - I have a suggestion for you. I would suggest that you immediately stop what you are doing and turn and take a good long look at Rita as it is more than likely that you are going to be seeing something amazing very soon.
2 Ashley Benson
If you have been paying attention and I know with all of these incredibly hot photos of celebrities on beaches that you have, Ashley Benson not only hits the beach, but she frolics too! Now this did not happen this year, but in the past Ashley has hit the beach with Shay Mitchell and while Shay decided to keep her top on, Ashley sunbathed topless. Now that is asking for it. So you are a big star and you are on the beach with another big star and out of the blue you just decide that you are going to take your top off? This is what they call in certain circles a "thinking error." The photos of Ashley with her top off went all over the place. Sadly in the summer of 2016 we had to be satisfied with Ashley frolicking with all of her clothes on.
I can tell you who you are not going to see frolicking pretty much ever on the beach and that is Rihanna. This is not to say that you won't see her on the beach, or that she does not look totally amazing when she is at the beach, because she does go and she does look hot. In fact there are tons of photos of Rihanna at the beach, and she looks fabulous in pretty much every single one of them. But she is way too cool to frolic. But hey, to each his own. We are not here to judge these celebrities. Well, I take that back, actually we are, and the women on this list have all been judged to look fabulous on the beach in the summer of 2016. Don't fret, these celebs are rich enough to go to beaches all year 'round, so it is pretty likely there will be more photos to come.
