Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are holidaying on Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw's private island.

The former couple - who announced last week they were ending their 10-year marriage - flew from Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where they have been vacationing since news of their split broke, to nearby Goat Cay with their children Apple, nine. and Moses, seven, by private plane on Sunday (30.03.14).

A source who saw the pair boarding their plane told 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 plane took off around 9.50am and landed in Cave Cay, a private islet where commercial aircraft are banned, and were met by an ''entourage of staff'' before boarding a private boat to take them to the 17-acre island which their friends - who they bonded with when Gwyneth and Tim made 'Country Strong' together in 2010 - have owned since 2008.

The island boasts a 15,000-square-foot, four-bedroom house that comes complete with a lookout tower, as well as three smaller houses for their staff.

Despite their separation, the Coldplay frontman and the 'Iron Man 3' star have pledged to stay friends for the sake of their kids and appeared closer than ever on their holiday last week.

An onlooker in a restaurant where the pair were dining said: ''Chris was making Gwyneth laugh until she had to wipe tears from her eyes.

''You wouldn't believe they were divorcing. They were deep in conversation and looked really happy together.''
