2013 was a very eventful year when it came to celebrities flaunting their bikini bods.

Jessica Alba, among others, hit the beaches of popular celeb hangout St. Barth's, a French island in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, back in April. The island is is a favorite of several celebs during the holiday season, like Russell Simmons, Stephanie Seymour and Olivia Palermo.

British supermodel Cara Delevingne opted for Barbados, where she spent time with both her family and with pal Rihanna, a native of the island.

Those weren't the only active beaches during the 2013 holiday seasons (both at the beginning of the New Year and in late December). Several stars, including Adam Sandler, Richie Sambora and his Heather Locklear-look-alike daughter Ava, and Prince Jackson were spotted in Maui; while British music mogul Simon Cowell was spotted jet-skiing in Barbados during his annual trip there.

Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux joined Howard and Beth Stern in Cabo San Lucas after Christmas; while many other stars opted to stay in the continental U.S. and head down to Miami Beach.
