Upping the glamour and adding a kooky touch, she shielded her eyes with a pair of stylish red sunglasses while her long, loose raven locks added to the overall beach babe vibe. 

Her companion meanwhile was flaunting a ripped beach body and highlighting his tan with bright white shorts. 

The duo looked to be getting along famously as they chatted in the water before running through the sea and then collapsing into fits of giggles and later joining a larger group on the shores. 

Following the dissolution of her marriage to media mogul Murdoch, who she wed two years after they met while she was working as an executive at his company Star TV in Hong Kong, Wendi has found love and lost elsewhere.

Back in 2016, it was revealed that Wendi had started dating Hungarian model Bertold Zahoran, 25, when they were seen packing on the PDA on the shores of St Barts, however they parted ways two years later. 

A friend of Ralph Lauren model Bertold revealed at the time of the split: ‘They’re not together any more, but they’re still on very good terms.

‘They decided it was best to cool things down because they’re both so busy and it was just too hard to make it work with conflicting schedules.’

Wendi resides in a $49million (£36million) home in New York, which she received as part of her 2013 divorce settlement from Rupert, whom she wed in 1999.

The businesswoman, who is the mother of two of Murdoch’s children, Grace, 19, and Chloe, 17, has previously hit headlines with her romantic life.

In 2014, a love note she had written to Tony Blair was published in Vanity Fair, in which she lusted after his ‘good body’ and ‘piercing blue eyes’.

The former prime minister, who is the godfather to her daughter, Grace, strongly denied allegations of an affair.

She is known for keeping former flames close, and remains good friends with Murdoch — now married to Mick Jagger’s ex, Texan bombshell Jerry Hall, 62 — whom she memorably defended in 2011 by lunging at a foam pie-throwing protester who attacked him.

Prior to her relationship with Bertold, Wendi was rumoured to be dating British classical violinist Charlie Siem.

Photos of the two holding hands and looking enamoured with one another while attending the Giambattista Valli show during Paris Fashion Week in March 2016 appeared to confirm the rumours.

It was only a few months after her fashion show date with Siem that Deng and Zahoran were spotted together at supermodel Naomi Campbell’s birthday party.

The bash was held in New York City on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, and a photograph from the event shows Wendi and sitting together on a banquette, with the model’s arm around his older girlfriend.
