It has been a long season. The beach volleyball elite have been competing since the first week of January and now, after 52 World Tour events, it’s time for a break. With just a one-star event left in the calendar year of 2018, most of the top players on the planet have entered vacation mode.

Join us and find out what they have been doing before they start preparing for 2019!

Melissa Humana-Paredes and Sarah Pavan are doing what they couldn’t do during season. The Canadians are using the free time to attend some events back home in Toronto and it seems they had a blast a few days ago.

Sarah and I doing what we do best... . Had an absolute time at Canada's @greatkitchenparty last week! Inspired by @musicounts, B2ten & @aplaceforfood who provide the opportunity for young Canadians to discover greatness through music, sport & food🎼🏐🥘. . We ate, honoured canadian achievement & danced the night away with legends #partywithpurpose #daretobegreat #ohwhatanight #oneforthebooks

Dutchman Alexander Brouwer, who is about to become a father, is making sure everything is perfect when his heir comes to the world. What about this shirt, isn’t it cute?

American star April Ross hopped into another airplane, but this time as a tourist. Her destinations were Prague and Budapest and it seems she had a good time at the Hungarian capital.

Walked all day (with plenty of stops in random cafes 😜), ogled beautiful historic architecture, and took a sobering and heartbreaking tour through Hungarian Jewish history circa WW2 🙏🏼 ⠀⠀ It's humbling to be in a place that has endured so much and has so many stories to tell. ⠀⠀ Heroes' Square as the sun was setting capped off a great first day in Budapest 🙌🏼 #offseason #vacay #eurotrip

Italian Olympic medalist Daniele Lupo was another one to endure one last trip and the skilled defender picked Hawaii to visit. We’re not sure, but it looks like he found a couple of nice spots there.

Russia’s Nadezda Makroguzova also decided to exchange the European fall by a warmer location and she picked one of the nicest ones – Phuket, Thailand.
