It was a blowout birthday bash for Beyoncé's 33rd!
E! News learns that the superstar singer celebrated her special day by having a beach party in Corsica with hubby Jay Z, daughter Blue Ivy, mom Tina Knowles and more family and friends.
An eyewitness tells us that upon Queen B's arrival, her loved ones had written "Happy Birthday" in sticks on the sand. Jay and Bey were very playful and joyous with one another, the insider added, noting that Beyoncé looked very happy throughout the festivities.
The group stayed on the beach for around four hours, playing paddle ball and taking lots of pictures. They had a tent sent up with food and drinks, and Bey could not stop smiling and doting over her baby girl.
In keeping with tradition, the soulful singer traveled overseas and landed in Corsica on Thursday to enjoy some quality down time with her family.
Yoncé and her fam-bam were all spotted arriving on a private jet at Bastia-Poretta airport, where they're expected to enjoy a peaceful vacation in the South of France. According to a source, Jay tipped their hostess on the private jet a hefty sum of €500, and when she returned to provide him with change, the rapper laughed and refused to accept. How nice!
E! News has also learned that the Carters have chartered a luxury yacht that rents for around $800,000 per week.
Sounds like a perfect birthday trip!
