Soaking up some rays off the coast of the Spanish island of Ibiza, Elle MacPherson snapped photos with family and friends in a teeny blue and white bikini.
The five-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl earned the vacation after recently completing filming of "Britain's Next Top Model," of which she is executive producer and host.
Another venture for Australian model is NBC's "Fashion Star," which will return for season 2, but without Miss Macpherson as host. She will stay on as executive producer as she focuses on building the show's brand on the international stage.
The 49-year-old fashion icon tells the New York Post, "I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season."
Enjoy the pictures of Elle Macpherson enjoying a quiet boat ride with family and friends while taking pictures on their sunny cruise over the Ibiza, Spain waters (July 14).
Ibiza (Catalan: Eivissa [əjˈvisə]; Phoenician: אִיבּוֹסִים, Ibosim) is an island in the Mediterranean Sea 79 km off the coast of the city of Valencia in Spain. It is the third largest of the Balearic Islands, an autonomous community of Spain. With Formentera, it is one of the two Pine Islands or Pityuses. Its largest cities are Ibiza Town (Catalan: Vila d'Eivissa, or simply Vila), Santa Eulària des Riu and Sant Antoni de Portmany. Its highest point, called Sa Talaiassa (or Sa Talaia), is 475 m/1,558 ft above sea level.
The relatively small island and its cities have become world-famous for their associations with tourism, nightlife, and the electronic music the island has originated. It is well known for its summer club parties which attract large numbers of tourists, but the island's government and the Spanish Tourist Office have been working to promote more family-oriented tourism. Noted clubs include Space, Privilege, Amnesia, DC10, Eden, and Es Paradis. Ibiza is also home to the legendary "port" in Ibiza Town, a popular stop for many tourists and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

My third visit to the Argos was mid November of this year and previously I stayed in March and May. Our May visit was very much more comfortable than in March as the weather was exceedingly good, all the facilities the hotel had to offer were available and the proximity of the beach really came into its own. This visit in November was similar to my March experience and was just as pleasant with one exception. The weather in November was quite warm by UK standards but the hotel had closed down the air conditioning system. The room was too warm at night for me (personal preference) and opening the window did little to cool it down due to outside temperatures. I would have liked the air conditioning to be available during this visit though I understand that to Ibiza folk the outside temperature was probably considered decidedly cool. I was wearing shorts - the Ibithencans were walking around swathed in overcoats!
