Los Angeles: Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is making the most of his time with his six-year-old daughter and has taken her on a short trip to the beach.

On Thursday, the 50-year-old actor took his daughter to East Hampton, New York, for a "beach vacation," a source said.

Cruise was first spotted with Suri in New York City June 17, less than a week after he and Holmes, 33, reached a divorce settlement.

The actor`s father-daughter day in East Hampton didn`t last long, however; they chartered a helicopter back to New York City mid-afternoon. Later that night, Holmes escorted Suri to her gymnastics class at Chelsea Piers.

A source recently confirmed that Holmes, who is renting an apartment in New York City`s Chelsea neighborhood, will retain primary custody of Suri. The reason Cruise hadn`t seen his daughter until this week, according to his attorney, Bert Fields, is purely logistical.
