However, not everyone took kindly to being shown the crystal clear water and white sand, especially those currently in lockdown or isolation in the UK and US.

“None of us actually need to be seeing this right now,” one person wrote.

“The rest of the world is suffering and you are showing this, really,” another person wrote.

“I would be fined if I go 5 kilometres from my home.I love Nicole but this really annoys me.,” a commenter said, while another wrote: “It's getting a bit much now, and very insensitive, so many people are struggling and going through such hardship! She needs to think more about how she is coming across.”

Others stuck up for the star, commenting on how amazing she looked, calling her ‘perfection’.

“If I could go to a sunnier climate believe me I’d be straight out of here ,but we can’t so hey ,good luck to her sure beats the doom and gloom,” one person said.
