Spring break isn’t just for 18-year-olds with fake IDs, ridiculously small bikinis, and bad judgment (hello, tramp stamp!). This year, more than usual, a lot of famous folks used it for family time… and yet another vacation.

So which locales were popular with celebrities for spring break 2017? Here, we break it down — and share some of the best pix. (Hey, Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth, invite us next time!)

St. Barts

The posh Caribbean island, where French is the native language, is always a celebrity favorite — just ask David Letterman’s fuzzy-wuzzy beard, which is a fixture there — and it’s attracted several stars over the last few weeks. Orlando Bloom was back on a paddleboardin swim trunks this time — late last month while traveling with friends. Uma Thurman, celebrating her victory in a nasty custody battle with her ex, took to the island for a little R&R in early April. And after unloading their Mexican vacation house (next to George Clooney’s twin mansion), Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber also picked the island for a respite, bringing along at least one of their kids (daughter Kaia).

Enjoying spring break with my honey!

If only they were a more attractive family… Sigh.


Matt Damon and family made the hella long trip to Australia, where he has been bro-ing it up with buddy Chris Hemsworth and co. (You know Ben Affleck is so jealous.) The Thor hunk, who relocated his family with Elsa Pataky to Byron Bay from Los Angeles a few years back, is the spokesperson for Australia, so who better to show you a good time? Unfortunately, their adventures included treatment by paramedics when one of Damon’s daughters was reportedly stung by a jellyfish. Hey, better to be treated by professionals than that other jellyfish sting remedy! But, hey, go to Australia. It’s a beautiful place. Seriously.

During a recent interview, Jordana Brewster said she was looking forward to spring break in Hawaii as her producer husband, Andrew Form, had been off on set and away from home recently. And boom — there she is, along with her two little boys, thanks to Instagram.

Other celebs who have said “aloha” to the big and little islands recently are Kate Hudson, who made the trip with her boys (after a romantic trip away with new bf Danny Fujikawa). It was also a family affair for Liev Schreiber, who hit the beach with his sons. Kendra Wilkinson Baskett did the same, although her getaway apparently had its ups and downs.

Not everyone was in Hawaii for family time, though. Wink wink, nudge nudge to Naya Rivera and David Spade, who enjoyed a hot make-out session in a pool. ‘A‘ole pilikia!


Island livin’ is nice and everything, but let’s face it — so is Europe. Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell brought their twin daughters to what the model described as her “motherland.” (The model’s father was born there.)

Meanwhile, Daisy Fuentes and Richard Marx are in Spain staying at the sickest villa. Thank you, Kohl’s — and “Right Here Waiting” royalties. (We mostly included them just so that some of y’all would comment: They’re together?! Yes, they are. Married since 2015.)

Border-wall drama isn’t keeping the stars out of Mexico. Gwyneth Paltrow was just in Los Cabos (again!) with her kids, Apple and Moses, and her man, Brad Falchuk. Also singing “Oh, Mexico” were Sienna Miller (and no, not with Brad Pitt), Bella Hadid, Kevin Hart, and Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler — this is where that bare-buns photo of the NFL player was snapped.

John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, and that bundle of delightfulness that is Luna were in Marrakech last month, which may have inspired Maisie Williams’s amazing-looking vacation. The Game of Thrones teen is with her boyfriend, Ollie Jackson, on the trip. Their matching outfits were apparently not planned, but cute nonetheless.

Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas

By our estimation (which is completely nonscientific), Heidi Klum is on vacation 355 days of the year. This week finds her bikini-ing (is that a word?) in the British isles. Lindsey Vonn is there, with her boyfriend Kenan Smith, staying at Sailrock Resort. (Side note: It’s funny to see a pro skier in a bikini.) And Courteney Cox was a Bahama mama — with her video star daughter, Coco Arquette — a few days back.

The Dominican Republic

From the looks of her pix, Janelle Monáe is our kind of tripper. A little hammock time does the body good. And it seems like she probably got the Punta Cana vacation gratis because she plugged a company (twice!) in her pix. The rich and famous have all the perks!

Uploading time. Booking it. Inspired. Thanks again @bookingcom! #DominicanRepublic #bookingyeah

Puerto Rico

While Teresa Giudice’s husband is holed up in jail, she took their four kids on a trip to… the “shining star.” They have been making beautiful memories (without Dad) — and the Real Housewives of New Jersey personality has had many opportunities to show off her bikini body.

Fun in the sun with my baby Audriana ????

Who exactly is fronting Lindsay Lohan’s vacations these days? We’re not sure, but the perennially on-vacation recovering child star has been in Thailand, where she rocked a burkini in Phuket. As far as what she’s shared of her adventures on social media, there’s this trying-to-be-sexy photo from inside the yacht she’s traveling on. Nobody seems to want her in their movies, but people don’t mind paying for her to travel the globe first class.

There was nothing gray about Dakota Johnson’s Florida trip — from the weather to her one-piece. The 50 Shades of Grey star was in Miami last week trippin’ with friends.

In a recent interview, Drew Barrymore mentioned taking a spring-break trip with her two daughters. While we’re not sure where it was, we do know that along for the trip was ex-husband Will Kopelman, because “dad” got the photo credit.

Meanwhile, it was three generations on vacay with Kate Beckinsale this week. The British beauty is with her mother and daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, somewhere tropical, where she is probably making onlookers drool.

Well, now we are severely depressed as we spend our eighth hour in front of a computer screen. Talk about wishing we were there. Except maybe Lindsay Lohan’s trip. You know something ridiculous and dramatic happens whenever she’s involved, and we’d take computer time over LiLo drama any day.
