Maggie Gyllenhaal and husband Peter Sarsgaard escaped the chilly streets of New York City for a Hawaiian vacation.

The couple spent a day frolicking on the island's sandy beaches with their 5-year-old daughter, Ramona, even taking time out for surfing lessons.

Clad in a snakeskin-print string bikini top, the actress seemed skeptical as Sarsgaard demonstrated how to stand up on a surfboard, but tried her hand anyway.
