She tied her dark tresses back into a high bun and smiled for the camera as she lounged by the pool.
In another snap, Adele stunned in an eye-popping red bikini.
She took a shot from behind, accentuating her slim waist and gorgeous tan-lines.
This time, she wore a big straw hat, engraved with the words: ‘Living my best life’.
Adele later took to the pool to cool off from the Caribbean heat.
She gave fans a view of the front of her bikini, which was a bandeau, as she took a dip in the water.

It comes after Adele broke her silence on claims that Jada Pinkett Smith’s docuseries Queen Cleopatra has been blackwashed.
The actress takes on the role of the Macedonian-Greek ruler in the latest instalment of the Netflix African Queens show, which has faced a wave of controversy since the trailer was released.
Director Tina Gharavi recently defended the show after Egyptians reacted with horror to the denial of records which show Cleopatra was Macedonian-Greek.
An Egyptian lawyer has filed a case with the country’s public prosecutor demanding that Netflix be shutdown.
Meanwhile, Cairo’s former antiquities minister Zahi Hawass condemned the documentary as ‘completely fake. Cleopatra was Greek, meaning that she was light-skinned, not black.’
Now, Adele has spoken out about playing the ruler in a new interview, revealing that she has even been sent death threats for taking on the role.
‘The only thing I can say about it [Cleopatra’s background) is that we just don’t know,’ she told Glamour. ‘There are versions of Cleopatra that exist already with actresses in that role who are fairer skinned than I am, but I think I have every right to have a shot at humanizing this incredible woman.

Past film: Cleopatra was famously played by white English actress Elizabeth Taylor opposite Richard Burton as Mark Antony in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s historical epic from 1963
‘We all put our blood, sweat and tears into that show, and I think anybody else has as much of a right as anybody else to have a go at it because we just don’t know.
‘The death threats that I’ve received, the racist comments, it’s just the vitriol. It’s not necessary, and it’s very harmful, all we did was release a trailer and look at the response, so I’m anticipating a wave still yet to come.’
But the actress has vowed to not be driven off social media by the cruel taunts and horrific trolling.
The trailer, released last week, features claims Cleopatra was black with ‘curly hair.’ One historian asserts in the preview: ‘I remember my grandmother saying to me: I don’t care what they tell you in school, Cleopatra was black.’
Cleopatra was the companion of Alexander The Great, renowned for her marriages and affairs with Mark Antony and Julius Caesar.
Her first language was Greek although she was the only Ptolemaic ruler to use the Egyptian language.
