    Beautiful is an adjective.

    Beautifully is an adverb. We usually add the suffix -ly to an adjective so as to make an adverb.
    However, there are adjectives and adverbs that have the same form : fast, hard, etc.

    He is a fast driver - adjective [fast modifies the noun driver]

    He drives fast - adverb [fast modifies the verb drives]
