He’s had a busy month after headlining Glastonbury and touring.
But Sir Paul McCartney was taking some time to relax on holiday on Friday after his busy schedule as he vacationed in the Hamptons.
The singer, 80, donned a black long-sleeved top as he bathed in the sea on a hot summer day.
He completed his swimming look with a pair of navy blue baggy shorts while enjoying the day at the beach where he was joined by his 18-year-old daughter Beatrice, who he shares with his ex-wife Heather Mills.
The Beatles legend looked in good spirits for the day and couldn’t help but smile as he waded in.
Sir Paul was dripping with sea water after stepping out of the ocean and had his hair straightened while walking on the sand.
Sir Paul’s recent performance at Glastonbury was a treat for fans after he became the oldest solo star to headline the festival.
His long set, which had been delayed for three years due to the pandemic, was not without surprises as he was joined by guests Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen during the show.

Taking to the stage for his first performance at the festival in 18 years, Paul performed hits ranging from his peak with the Beatles to his stint with the band Wings.
The pop icon received a thunderous reception from the crowds of thousands watching the show, with several million also watching on BBC One.
During his set, Sir Paul showed his allegiance to friend Johnny Depp while performing his 2012 track My Valentine as he projected a snippet of the actor from the song’s music video onto the screen behind him.
He recently used the footage during his recent US Get Back tour, while the Pirates of the Caribbean star was in the middle of his libel suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, which he later won.
Also featuring Natalie Portman, the black-and-white video shows the Hollywood star playing guitar and translating the track into sign language.
Sir Paul didn’t address Depp’s $100million lawsuit against Amber directly during the gig, but as soon as footage of the actor appeared on stage, the crowd cheered.
The Love Me Do hitmaker also brought the crowd to cheers for his hometown of Liverpool, as well as his late teammate John Lennon, to whom he dedicated Here Today.
The show proves a poignant moment in Sir Paul’s long career, as it also marks 55 years to the day since The Beatles reached the biggest audience in their history, when they performed on the first TV show world.
