Bezos was seen wearing a tight white tee and form-fitting red chinos, and Sanchez opted for a skin-tight, leopard-print dress as they walked down the promenade to the restaurant.  Earlier in the day, Bezos — the world’s richest man with a net worth of $131 billion — was also caught sporting multi-colored shorts and a dark short-sleeved shirt as they headed for boat moored nearby, according to the outlet.

The first few images of their loved-up vacation caught the attention of scores of media outlets, many of which focused on the hefty rock sitting on Sanchez's right hand which was caught by an eagle-eyed photographer.
