The first-time mom, 30, went resort-casual for several outings on the celeb-friendly island, wearing an orange cardigan and denim cut-off shorts that showed off her world-famous, slim legs. Holding a covered-up Blue, the singer (with her hair in a modest french braid) and Jay-Z, 42, boarded a luxury yacht for a daytime cruise.

In another shot, Beyonce and the "Otis" rapper left their bundle of joy behind for a romantic, hand-in-hand stroll down the streets of St. Bart's. See more pics of the family on vacation

The music super couple took their daughter on her first-ever trip shortly after they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary last Wednesday April 4. The "Love on Top" singer shared her romantic joy with fans by posting a bevy of private, personal snapshots, many of them with her man (real name: Shawn Carter), on her tumblr and relaunched website Beyonce.com.

The superstar's leisure time in NYC and St. Bart's won't last forever: she's scheduled to perform three times over Memorial Day weekend at Revel Beach's Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
