Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are continuing their holiday in the Caribbean with children Moses and Apple following the news of their separation and have reportedly jetted to the island owned by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw for some extra privacy.

The couple confirmed last week their 11 year marriage was over in a statement on Platrow's Goop website. Hoping to avoid the ensuing media onslaught, they took their children off on holiday before the news broke and have since been sunning themselves in the Bahamas.

According to eye-witnesses, they headed to the private island on Sunday and appeared pretty happy despite the raging interest in their break up. A source told the MailOnline: ''They looked happy and calm. Chris was wearing a hat and Gwyneth was casual in a white t-shirt... they drove right up to their private jet with the kids in tow.''

The couple are said to have headed to the private hideaway of Goat Cay, a 17-acre private island, on Sunday morning. Chris was spotted behind the wheel of a Red Ford Explorer heading to the Bahaman Governor’s Harbor Airport, before boarding a private plane to the island.

Gwyneth and Chris are known to be close to Faith and her husband Tim after the actress co-starred with McGraw in the 2011 movie Country Song, in which they played man and wife. The country and Western couple purchased the island in 2008, the MailOnline reports, which feautres a luxury four bedroom 15,000 ft house where the couple are likely to be staying.

The tropical paradise is just one of 365 islands which make up the Exuma archipelago. Johnny Depp and Tyler Perry are just some of the stars who own neighbouring islands, which cost around $30 million each.

Previously they were staying on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas at a luxury $10,500 per week mansion. Eye-witnesses claimed the couple appeared relaxed during their visit and showed no signs of stress from the break-up.

"Chris was making Gwyneth laugh until she had to wipe tears from her eyes,” an eye-witness who saw the couple dining out with friends claimed. "You wouldn’t believe they were divorcing. They were deep in conversation and looked really happy together."
