London: Newlywed couple Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell have jetted off to the Caribbean island of Mustique for their honeymoon.

“Sir Paul is a regular visitor to Mustique and has stayed before at the home of Mr. (Mick) Jagger,” a website quoted an islander as saying.

“He loves the privacy the island offers and there is no better place to spend a honeymoon. Everyone will just leave them to enjoy their special time together,” the islander added.

The couple, who got married last week at London's Marylebone Register Office, will enjoy floodlit tennis court and a 25ft swimming pool at the resort. They will also have their own personal water sports instructor.

The island is home to Basil's Bar, which has become a popular evening spot for a number of stars who have visited the island including Kate Moss, David Bowie and Liam Gallagher.
