Fabulous over 50! Helen Hunt hit the beach in Maui, Hawaii this week, and at the age of 51, she looks better than ever. 

The Oscar-winning actress took in the Hawaiian sun in a striped bikini, offering a peek at her fit figure.

Getting into vacation mode with her hair beachy and her face makeup-free, Hunt chose a triangle-cut black-and-white striped top, and blue-and-white striped bottoms. 

The "Mad About You" star later tried on a white rashguard, embellished with a print of a palm tree, for a little surfing in the Pacific Ocean.

The mother to daughter Makena, 10, has hardly aged a day, staying active as she played on the beach and in the water. Hunt celebrated her 51st birthday just last month.

Her career has just gotten better with age as well, as Hunt received major honors for her role in 2012's "The Sessions." She was nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.

"It's getting too late in my life to care about the small things," Hunt told Indiewire in 2012. "It's getting too late to not be brave, to not live my life fully, to not try to be an artist. Trivial things like how nice your hotel room is, or if you have to be naked for a while, they fade away."
