She kept her light blue eyes protected from the sun with a pair of black sunglasses and opted to wear her blonde tresses down over her shoulders.

Following her dip in the crystal-clear water, the bombshell carried a full-face snorkel mask in one hand as she walked barefoot along the sand.

TheGolden Globe nominee was joined by several female pals, including one that sported a sexy red one-piece with acriss cross design across her chest.

Derek has been inSardinia attending theFilming Italy Sardegna festival.

She is an actress, film producer, and model perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the 1979 film 10.

Amid a cast that included Blake's wife Julie Andrews as well as Dudley Moore, Bo made a splash while strutting her stuff across the beach in a swimsuit.

That starring role also launched a bestselling poster for Derek in a swimsuit, and subsequently she became an instant sex symbol.

She was also in Tarzan The Ape Man in 1981 and Bolero in 1984.

Bo and her husband, Sex And The City star John Corbett, secretly tied the knot in 2020 after 18 years of dating.

They kept the news quiet until the following year, when John let slip in an interview: 'Around Christmas time, we got married. Bo and I got married.

'We got married, and this is probably the first time – we’re pretty private people, we didn’t make an announcement...

'All our friends and family knew. But this is the first time either one of us have said something publicly about it, because really we haven’t had the opportunity.

'After 20 years we decided to get married. We didn’t want 2020 to be that thing that everyone looks back at and hated… let’s get one nice thing out of it'.

The couple were set up by John's talent agent after he told him he had no one to take to an Oscars party.

Initially, John said he 'was very intimidated' before first meeting Bo but once they got to know one another, Bo said 'it was just an attraction, a comfort.'

However she explained that when she met her second husband for the first time she felt 'just an attraction, a comfort. He makes me laugh all the time. He’s full of life, full of joy.'

Bo shared: 'I became attracted to him and I still am. We take things day by day and I think we are still there. We’re starting to get a little more settled.'

In August 2020, Derek revealed why she and Corbett had not yet wed, following their lengthy romance which began in 2002.

She is an actress, film producer, and model perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the 1979 film 10 (seen above in 1979)

She explained to Fox News: 'I think when you’re beginning a young family and you’re going to have children and set up this new family tree branch, it’s obviously a wonderful commitment and it’s meaningful. But for us in our lives, it hasn't been yet.'

Before she met John she thought she would never find love again, having lost her husband John Derek to heart failure in 1998.

John was 30 years Bo's senior and became smitten with her when she was 16 years old acting in his film Fantasies in Greece.

Although he was married to Linda Evans and had children older than Bo, he began a relationship with her and stayed with her in Germany until she turned 18.

She has been in Sardinia attending the Filming Italy Sardegna festival (seen last week on the red carpet inSanta Margherita di Pula, Italy)

Once Bo was legally an adult in the United States, he divorced Linda and made Bo his fourth and final wife, according to his obituary in the Independent.

He not only managed her but also directed her in films such as the romantic comedy Ghosts Can't Do It, which featured Donald Trump in a Razzie-winning cameo.

Although their movies together were not taken seriously, the couple lived in luxury at a ranch until his death at the age of 71.

'I’ve always been a fairly optimistic person, but it was a huge change, an enormous loss. The air just gets sucked out of the room when you lose your partner. So I wallowed in that for a while,' Bo told Fox News.

'I didn’t expect to end up with anyone again. Some women want to pair up again right away. I didn’t. I remember consciously fashioning myself after some girlfriends that I have [who] are single and led very full, fantastic lives with friends and family and projects that they do. And that gave them happiness.'
