So this is what Taylor Swift was doing over the Fourth of July holiday.

Instead of hosting a star-studded party in the United States, the "Delicate" singer was enjoying a break from her reputation stadium tour with boyfriend Joe Alwyn in Turks & Caicos.

In photo surfacing online, the pair was able to soak up some sun and enjoy some time in the ocean blue water.

Taylor wore a red and white striped swimsuit while Joe opted for blue swim trunks with white horizontal stripes. Pretty patriotic, right? 

As for whether or not they were enjoying their time in paradise, we'd say their smiles say it all.

The couple stayed in an oceanfront villa and visited the hotel's beach, gym and pool. "They were very quiet and low-key their entire stay. It was just the two of them; they were always together," an eyewitness tells E! News. They celebrated the Fourth of July at the beach, where T.Swift wore a red, white and blue swimsuit. Compared to previous holidays, they appeared "mellow and relaxed," the witness adds, "talking quietly to one another and going for a swim."

The lovebirds were in paradise, figuratively and literally. "They had beach chairs set up for them daily and usually ventured down in the afternoon," the eyewitness says. "They swam together in the ocean and cuddled up in the water. Taylor floated on her back and Joe held her; she swam up behind and kissed his shoulder. They were sweet together and clearly in love. They went snorkeling daily and loved looking for fish in the sea; they put on fins and snorkel masks and made funny faces. They looked underwater and showed each other what they had found."

Celebs on Vacation

"They did everything together and were never apart. They went for a long walk on the beach, dipping their feet in the waves and carrying their drinks. They held hands and whispered to one another. After their walk they took a dip in the ocean while holding their drinks," the eyewitness tells E! News. They seemed very happy together and like they were really enjoying their down time. They loved being in the warm water and just being together, not doing much."

The couple's summer vacation is their first photographed appearance together since being spotted at the end of May on a lunch date in London.

And as the pair continues their ultra-private love story, all signs point to a couple stronger than ever.

"Being low-key and staying out of the spotlight has really helped their relationship," an insider told E! News. "It's made things more special and sacred."

Another source previously shared, "Joe is extremely supportive and her No. 1 fan. He plans to go on tour with her when he can and support her at her shows. Things are going great between them."

Speaking of tours, Taylor is back on the road and performing Saturday night at Ohio Stadium. Dates in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Cleveland soon follow.

And while Joe was spotted at opening night of the reputation tour, he appears to be showing his support from afar. Instead, pop superstars including Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan have all made surprise appearances at select shows.

As for the next time we'll spot Taylor and Joe together, you're guess is as good as ours. Whenever the case may be, we'll be ready for it.
