What better way to enjoy some down time than at the beach with a bunch of friends?

Julianne Hough ("Rock of Ages") and Nina Dobrev ("The Vampire Diaries") spent an afternoon at the sea at the Soho Beach House in Miami, Fla., over the weekend.

The two pals and a few other friends soaked in the rays, chatted and laughed as they displayed their beautiful bikini bodies in the hot Florida sun.

The besties spent the entire weekend at the beach, wearing different string bikinis each day. On Sunday, Dobrev donned a colorful floral two piece, while Hough opted for a striped, hot pink and turquoise swimsuit.

Although it was a girl's day out, Dobrev is dating her TV co-star Ian Somerhalder. Hough, however, is single after recently ending a two-year relationship with "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest.

Hough most recently starred in "Safe Haven," which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray next week. The CW just announced that Dobrev's popular CW series is getting a spin-off, "The Originals."
