LIFE'S a beach for Lionel Messi.

Unlike many of his teammates, the Barcelona ace didn't get the summer off and had to play for Argentina in the Copa America.

The tournament ended in disappointment for the 32-year-old and his country, who crashed out to South American rivals Brazil in the semi-final.

Keen to put that upset out of his mind, Messi is now on holiday - and what a holiday he has chosen.

The forward whisked wife Antonella Roccuzzo and their three children, Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro for a once-in-a-lifetime break to Antigua, sharing snaps on Instagram.

LUXURY RESORT

And they are staying at the exclusive Jumby  Bay Island resort in the Caribbean that costs up £1,200-per-night, or if you hire your own villa, can be as much as £5,000-per-night.

Jumby Bay is so private, it's only reachable by boat and there are no cars in sight.

The white-powdered beach, that can only be used by guests, is stunning and Messi and Co have already been catching some rays on sun-loungers.

Roccuzzo also displayed her stunning bikini body when she put a snap on Instagram showing her dipping her toes into the Caribbean sea.

The resort features 40 beautifully decorated rooms and villas that are all just steps away from the beach.

While each suite offers a tranquil view of the sea, perfect for watching sunrise and sunset from your digs.

The resort also has its own spa - complete with an infinity pool, a relaxation deck, as well as a sauna and experience shower.

And the excitement doesn't end there - with plenty of activities to entertain the whole family.

A water sports centre allows guests to snorkel around the nearby coral-fringed islands, borrow paddle-boards or hire a 45-foot catamaran, again that's for the exclusive use of guests staying at the property.

The Estate House, previously a plantation house built in 1830, offers a fine-dining experience combining classic and modern flavours, and is considered as the top fine-dining destination in the Caribbean.

There are three private dining rooms, as well as the 1830 Bar and lounge where you can grab a tasty cocktail.

CELEB HAUNT

Many celebrities have left their footprints in the sand of Jumby Bay in recent years.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan enjoyed a welcome stay last year, and appears to be a regular.

"Thanks @jumbybayresort - you were sublime, as always," he wrote as a caption in a snap of himself on the beach.

A-listers Sir Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey, and Will Smith are also said to have stayed there in recent times.

Incidentally, this isn't Messi's first time at Jumby Island.

In 2017, he and Roccuzzo spent their honeymoon there after getting married in his hometown of Rosario in Argentina in front of friends and family.

They obviously loved it so much they're returned once again, and judging by these pics who would blame them?
