Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend Conor Kennedy soaked up the sun and surf Friday near the Kennedy family's beach compound in Cape Cod.
The country star wore a bright red retro bikini with white polka dots, while Kennedy wore casual blue shorts as they splashed around with a few of Conor's family members.

The pair has been together only a few months, but all signs point to it being serious. Swift has become fast friends with the entire Kennedy clan, including Conor's father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Swift even slapped down some serious cash to be near her main squeeze, purchasing a seven-bedroom, $4.9 million beachfront colonial-style mansion near the Kennedy compound in Massachusetts.
Sources say the couple first hit it off when Swift became a shoulder for Conor to cry on amid the pain of his mother's death earlier this year. Mary Kennedy committed suicide in May amid her divorce from husband RFK Jr.
Swift recently announced plans to release her fourth studio album, "Red," on Oct. 22. She kicked off the stream of new music by releasing the album's lead single, "We Are Never Getting Back Together," just last week.
