Maria Sharapova knows how to make the most of the off-season.

The Russian tennis star whisked away to Necker Island to enjoy some down time. She was joined by business magnate Richard Branson, the owner of the entire land there.

Brandon, who is known to be good friends with Sharapova, showed her around in his off-roader.

For those unaware, the most of Necker Island was destroyed by a hurricane in September last year. The damaged structures were later rebuilt earlier this year.

And, Sharapova seemed intrigued as she went exploring the ‘island life’.

“A tour of the island with Richard,” she wrote to her 3.4 million Instagram followers. “It’s been a year since the hurricane. What once was the spa, is now a beautiful guest room.”

Meanwhile, Sharapova, who ended her season early, is expected to get back on court soon as she is scheduled to compete at Shenzhen Open in early January.

She will then participate at the season’s first Grand Slam, the Australian Open.
