Emma Watson opts for mismatched bikini as she relaxes on the beach in

Emma Watson was relaxing in the warm sunshine as she enjoyed a sunny getaway with her pals in on Tuesday.

The star, 30, sported a cropped black bikini top and mismatched neon orange bottoms as she took a shower by the sea after sunbathing during the holiday in Positano.

Emma's break comes after she weighed into the 'transphobia' row sparked by J.K. Rowling, after the best-selling author penned an essay defending her stance on an article about 'people who menstruate'.

Emma opted for a simple cropped black bikini top as she reclined on her sunbed before heading to the shower to cool off.

The and the Beast star teamed the top with neon orange bottoms and white flip flops, with her hair pulled into a top knot.

Emma also headed into the ocean for a swim with one of her female friends, before donning a green and white printed sarong to head into town.

During her sunbathing, she appeared to be in the midst of reading the psychology book Emergent Strategy: Shaping Chang by Adrienne Maree Brown.
