The reality star wowed in a plunging black swimsuit which showcased a hint of cleavage and her enviably long legs.
Montana cinched in her waist with a black belt while the low-cut back showcased her tan.
She walked shoeless down a set of rocky steps and clutched onto her hat to stop it from blowing off in the wind.
The television personality captioned the shot: 'Barbados was dreamy but now time to work hard and kick it HARD this year.

'My New Year's resolutions are to be more disciplined with the things I have to do but don’t want to, carve out more time for things that I love doing like playing netball, get back into playing piano and golf.
'I have some other pretty exciting goals for this year but gotta keep you on your toes! Happy new year everyone. Sending everyone big big love and just a tip, no dream is too big!'
Montana travelled to the exotic Caribbean location with beau Mark O'Connor, as well as family and friends.
Mark is a real estate executive, having attended Cardiff University and Henly Business School, according to a pal.
Last year, friends of Mark told MailOnline: 'He played rugby for Chiswick and Wales 1st Teams as a prop, and has a proprietary interest in Forge Gym London. That's likely how he met Montana.
'He used to be out of shape and is now very much in shape. He's a very wild bloke to go on a night out with, drinks a lot. Very good fun to be with.'
The source added: 'His father owns a huge development/construction firm which he will inherit.'
MailOnline approached Montana's representatives for comment at the time.
