Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and actress wife Gwyneth Paltrow have been sunning themselves in Paradise – St Lucia. Gwyneth, 40, says they had an “amazing holiday” with children, Apple, eight, and six-year-old Moses, and it was “heaven” at Sugar Beach – A Viceroy Resort.
The white sands of Sugar Beach are nestled at the foot of more than 100 acres of landscaped rainforest between the famous Pitons. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the clear waters are also part of a Marine Reserve, protecting the reef that thrives just off the beach.
