Hayden, 33, posed for a series of photos on the picturesque sandy shoreline.
She rocked a skin-colored one-piece as she stood before a wall of jagged rock with her hair pulled back in a messy style.
She was also seen posing against a small rock formation with waves crashing behind her.
She had on a white bikini with a knit coverup over top.
The piece hung over one shoulder and her blonde hair, which was hanging off to one side in a loose braid, with shorter pieces flowing in the wind.
Hayden gave a coy smile to the camera in one photo wearing that look and a sultry straight face in another.
Other photos showed her sporting black bikini bottoms and a cropped sweatshirt.
The star’s toned stomach was on display for much of the shoot.

BackGridHayden recently opened up about her long addiction battle[/caption]
In July 2022, Hayden opened up for the first time about her battle with addiction.
During an interview with PEOPLE, she recalled her rise to fame on Heroes.
While fans loved her character Claire Bennett, off-screen Hayden was battling some dark demons.
She revealed in the interview that her addiction began with what she called “happy pills,” alleging that she was first offered them before red carpet appearances at just 15 years old.
“They were to make me peppy during interviews,” she remembered.
“I had no idea that this was not an appropriate thing, or what door that would open for me when it came to my addiction.”
Hayden continued to work as her addiction grew, spanning into alcohol and opioids.
She said: “My saving grace is that I couldn’t be messy while on set and working.
“But things kept getting out of control [off set]. And as I got older, the drugs and alcohol became something I almost couldn’t live without.”
Hayden moved on from Heroes, landing a lead role in the show Nashville.
She told PEOPLE she saw some of herself in her character, who suffered postpartum depression just as she had back in 2014.
The actress confessed: “Those were really tough years.”
Hayden added: “I could relate to a lot of those storylines like the alcoholism and postpartum depression. They hit close to home.”
She remained sober during her pregnancy but delved back into her addiction after giving birth.
The star shared: “There was just this gray color in my life.”
Hayden told PEOPLE: “I was on top of the world and I ruined it.
“I’d think I hit rock bottom, but then there’s a trap door that opens.”
Eventually, doctors warned her that her liver “was going to give out.”
At that point, she decided it was time to give rehab a try.
Hayden said of her recovery: “This hasn’t been easy, and there were a lot of ups and downs.”
BACK & BETTER
The actress is making a comeback in a major way after taking the time to focus on herself.
She is set to return to the Scream franchise, reprising her role from Scream 4 as Kirby Reed.
The film is set to debut in March and will feature many of the original stars.
Neve Campbell has opted not to return, according to the New York Post, due to a pay dispute.
Others, however, are back and better than ever.
Hayden has signed on, as has Courteney Cox, returning to her role as Gale Weathers.
Jenna Ortega will also be starring.
