When you’re the most decorated Olympian of all time, life’s a beach.

After upping his medal count to a whopping 22 during the 2012 London Olympics, Michael Phelps jetted off with pals for a guys-only getaway in the Maldives.

How is Phelps celebrating his record-breaking success?

With some bro-tastic beach time, of course

In TMZ’s exclusive photo, a swimsuit-clad Phelps poses with his fellow Speedo-wearing, buff buddies on the sand in Maldives.

The gang is living the life at a luxury resort in Ari Atoll, according to a Maldives travel site. Taking in the sights and the turquoise waters of the Asian island, Phelps has been lounging, boating and boozing, a source told TMZ.

But where’s Phelp’s model girlfriend, Megan Rossee?

According to TMZ, the Olympian opted to skip town without his new Los Angeles-based lady love, instead choosing to fete his victories with friends with a tropical vacation.

What do you think of Phelp’s beach body? Sound off below.
