Newlywed pop babe Britney Spears and new husband KEVIN FEDERLINE have finally started their honeymoon on the idyllic Fijian island setting of the BLUE LAGOON movies.

The TOXIC singer wed father-of-two Federline in an intimate, secret ceremony at a friend's house in Studio City, California, on 18 September (04), and filed their marriage licence with local authorities last week (ends15OCT04).

After posting her 'letter of truth' to her fans over the weekend (16-17OCT04), which described Spears' plans to take time out of her music career and started a family with Federline, the happy couple flew to the islands' Nadi International Airport via private jet on Monday (18OCT04).

FIJI TELEVISION report the couple took a seaplane to the 500-acre Turtle Island resort, where they can enjoy golden sands, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, horse-riding or Lomi-Lomi massage.

Turtle Island - which only accommodates 14 couples at a time - was formerly known as Nanuya Levu Island and was the location for the 1980 BROOKE Shields classic Blue Lagoon movie and the 1991 MILLA JOVOVICH-starring sequel RETURN TO THE BLUE LAGOON.

Spears' chart rival Jessica Simpson honeymooned with Nick Lachey on the same island following their October 2002 wedding.
