Los Angeles: Teen couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have jetted off on a romantic getaway to Hawaii.

The stars left for the islands a day after Bieber, 17, picked up multiple Billboard Music Awards in Vegas and was kissed Gomez, 18, before hitting the podium for his Best New Artist trophy, reported Us magazine.

"I`m 17 and I want to thank God because he has blessed me so much," Bieber said at the podium Sunday as Gomez and his mother looked on proudly.

And on Monday, the duo arrived on the island hand-in-hand. Wearing board shorts, flip-flops and white sunglasses, a shirtless Bieber was later seen heading to the beach with Gomez, who donned a pink bikini top and daisy
dukes.

The duo have slowly opened up about their long-rumoured romance. "I`m eighteen, and I`m going to fall in love. I`m going to hang out with people, and I`m going to explore myself, and I`m okay with that," Gomez said earlier
this month.
