With her blonde hair loose around her shoulders, Frankie enjoyed a paddle in the sea in the holiday hot spot.
Frankie, who is the elder sister of Joey Essex, has clearly got the spring back in her step after getting back to the gym following a crippling knee injury that left her unable to work out.
The star put on a stone in weight and in an August chat with The Sun, she said not being able to do cardio left her "depressed" and her "whole body swollen".
She had lost over two stone and released her own fitness DVD in 2016 after overhauling her lifestyle and hitting the gym.

And back in September the star vowed never to wear a bikini again after she was fat shamed by a stranger on holiday.
The former Towie star was left devastated after a cruel holidaymaker branded her fat as she celebrated her 30th birthday with a trip to Spain.
The upsetting incident occurred as Frankie soaked up the sun alongside her best mate Casey Batchelor.
Frankie said: “Was having a lovely day at the pool with @caseybatchelor until someone decided to call me fat a few sun loungers down from us so hurtful 🙈.”
